The first mobile phone I bought was the one that one2one first issued (think it was a Motorola, came with a retractable aerial).. when they first started in around 1990. It had free weekend & evening calls which was a big move back then as they had only just become afordable to the general public. It was about the size of two packs of playing cards & I beleive the original sims used to go for lots of money before one2one were bought out... When did you buy your first mobile/what make etc. & how big was it?! Some of the early 'Mobiles' fitted into a briefacse! Were you one of early 'Yuppies'?

Sounds really intresting. As for me I got my first mobile while I was in 11th grade as carrying mobile by high schoolers are not so popular in those days. I got it while I was the age of 17 and it was during 2004. I know it is really late but mom never thought that it was a good idea to get a cell phone and I never thought of bothering again and again. The first set I got was nokia. It was fascinating.

So it wasn't the size of house then if you bought it in 2004! lol The mobiles in the eighties make great door stops or book-ends :P
