I bought my very first mobile phone in 1997. Ericsson phones were top in the market then and I still think the yellow and black design was attractive and I loved flipping it open. It came in blue too. The GF768 beats loads of the models out there today. At that time there was not such thing as texting and no such thing as missed calls which I think was great. Children carrying cells was unheard of. People walking about texting was not a problem we could even conceive of then. These days having a phone is like being shackled, so I chose not to use one.
I must admit that when I first got my hands on one I was really excited. It was equivalent then, to getting your hands on an iPad. Maybe even more exciting. It was after my colleagues at work persuaded me to get one as they already bought theirs a couple of months ago and I was still carrying the office pager.
What was your first mobile phone? When did you buy it? How did you feel?
