Cell Phones Have Come A Long Way

Since my parents got their first cell phone a long time ago, maybe about 10 years ago, they have come such a long way, seriously. I mean, this cell phone was massive compared to the ones out today. The screen held nothing but numbers, and the numbers looked like crap! Haha, do you guys have any old cell phone memories?

I remember I used to play snake on my mom's old nokia brick phone. Honestly I think it was a lot better than most of the games on phones now and you didn't have to pay for it.

The other thing that I like about older phones was that they were a lot more robust. You could throw those phones around without worrying that they were going to break. I had an older motorola clamshell style phone that had a metal case, and I beat that thing to death but it survived for several years.

Too bad we're not longer on TDMA

That is so true, you really could throw those older phones around without worrying about too much. The phones now are really fragile, because they are made out of such light material, and the manufacturer doesn't mind...

Yes phones have gone a real long way in the past years. The industry has really become one of the largest out there.

problem is now, how small is too small? It's hard to even dial now with the small keypads if you have fat fingers and then you have to worry about losing the darned phone in your pockets!

I've never lost my phone in my pocket

The older phones were a lot more durable, but I prefer modern phones. They include many more features.

I just love seeing old cell phones in movies. They are huge and it amuses me ever-so.

In one episode of The Boondocks, Granddad let Riley use his cell phone. To Rileys dismay, it wa large, bulky, and more than a decade old. While trying to hide out, the phone went off. A nearby man flipped at the size of the phone. Coicidentally, he was a collector of large antique items and offered above $200 for the phone. He gave away Rileys position and was knocked over by Rileys chasers.

If Riley were using a modern phone, all would have been well!

It amuses me that the newer phones were evidently designed by fans of the original Star Trek. Everytime I see someone flip their phone open, I wait to hear them demand, "Scotty--beam me up!". lol
