When did you get your first mobile phone? Do you use a mobile or do you still have a land-line house phone? I haven't had a land-line for 10 years. I don't see the point in having one, any more. What mobile phone do you prefer?
My husband had his first car phone in 1987. It was such a novelty.
My daughter got her first, when we returned to the US. She was working until after dark and I felt more at ease knowing she had one. Looking back it seems so large and cumbersome. It looked something like this:
I now have another Blackberry that was my daughter's. This is how it works: she gives me her old phone when she gets the latest and greatest. I'm on my 3rd "hand-me-down".
I'm just glad to have one. It is my security blanket. I feel really naked without it. I have turned around and gone home for it when I've forgotten it. I don't use the internet features, as she does, but then I'm never too far from from my Mac.
Here is a great old film of the "first mobile phone".
