I wish I kept all my letters I had bags of them. My girlfriends and I wrote every day. Heck even guys use to write love letters in those days. *sigh* I'm sad why did I throw them out!

Im 28 and vaguely rememberer the rotary phone. We didn't even own a computer until I was 13 or 14. No internet till maybe 15, was dialup and we were only allowed on for school things and native 15 mins of random stuff. You got dcd every 4hrs or if someone called.
My dad drives trucks, I remember once he left for work, he had to use a payphone to contact us if he was going long distance. I remember him waiting until we were at an exact point before using tge cb/uhf to contact his boss in the office so he knew what his next job was. Then he got an analogue "mobile" phone installed ($800!) And something like $2 a min call cost! It was huge! Now, the truck he drives has gps positioning and his boss txts his work details to the trucks phone/radio and he calls mum and anyone else twice a day or more for $30 a month!
I remember recording to vhs/tape, listening to the chipmunks record, pressing buttons on the tv, walkmans, diskmans and mp3 players.
taking on the phone to friends, I was 15 when I got a mobile for xmas, and only once other friend had one.(I hadn't even asked!)

My first ever mobile was in 1996/97 because my car broke down and I was stuck in a dodgy-ish area so Dad sent my sister out to get me was. It was a Phillips Fizz - here is a photo with a comparison of a later phone
My Dad owned a business and was often out on the road making deliveries so it made sense for him to have a mobile phone, but in those days it was known as a car phone. It looked a bit like this -
and it had a shoulder strap. It weighed a tonne too.

Before the internet if I couldn't sleep (such as now) I would be lying in bed listening to music on my Walkman instead of being on bubhub.

This thread has made me feel super old! We did the letter writing thing. Sadly my mum found a whole bunch of them a few years ago and I think was so shocked by their content that she threw them out! We got the Internet at home when I was 15 and I got my first mobile phone the year I left school. I had free 20 min calls after 9 so would wait til 9 then call my friend, talk for 20 mins, hang up and call her back!
