          What is a cell phone? Is that something for prisoners?

            I can't remember what my cell phone number was/is. It's a Motorola, C-139... only cell phone I've ever had, and still have. I can talk and text, but don't know how to text as it seems rather numb and inefficient (Morse code would be faster). Now, according to my phone log I've used up about 20 hours of time over the last six or seven years! It's a GO-phone, I pay $100 a year for it and have just about $475 credit, which I find a real challenge... I need to get it down to $400 before the middle of June, in order to buy another $100.

            Hey, I only got this thing for emergencies when I'm traveling.

            Now, if you want to know the VERY first phone number I ever had, it was "31538"... I was living in Binghamton, I was only about six or so and my Mommy and Daddy told me it was VERY, VERY important that I remember that number! (Damn, I was such a good little boy back in the early 50's!)

                Mine was an NEC brick linked to the truck horn it took 24 hours to charge the batteries and cost me $3000,00 in 1991

                  Mitsubishi cellular phone, late 80s, early 90s. As I recall, 60 cents per minute.

                      Can't remember 1st cell number. It was only a decade or so ago. A black Motorola, the one that came with some crappy games. I played "snake" a lot.

                      This was a fun memory thing though...

                      Got a Master combo lock for gym use, one of the three number combo spinning dial ones. First few days using it I kept wanting to put in the wrong combo. 10-21-35 just seemed to come out of my brain for some reason and I had to think to not put that in. Finally realized that was the combo to the lock I used all thru jr. high and high school.

                      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

                        Nokia 232, still have it in my desk drawer as a prop. Its weight nearly classifies it as a weapon. Got it when it first came out, and my bill was around $13/mo.

                            1997, Aerial Communications, Nokia 2190. Phone number is the same one today! Aerial became Voice Stream in 2000 iirc, then T-Mobile a few years later. Then I jumped ship in 2010 and moved after 13 years to Verizon. It was somewhat emotional to divorce ones self from a company that had been quite good at customer service for so long, but at the time was way behind in the smart phone arena. Verizon has grown on me, and after a couple junk HTC phones, I'm now in procession of a Motorola RAZR MAXX and quite satisfied. In 97, I moved departments at Best Buy from computers to wireless devices when digital mobile phone service was just introduced. Aerial was that company in our market. Employees got a sweet discount, 12.00 a month w/1000 minutes included and per second billing over that. Had that plan for 6 years!

                              First one was a bag phone and what I do remember it had great reception anywhere compared to the other phones at that time. Can't remember the number. Now use an I-phone 5 and never leave home without it. Dumped the land line this year.
