Late 2003 for me. I remember it was around the time the leaked version of The College Dropout came out.

Technically, I had a pre-paid cell phone in 2001.  However, it wasn't until 2003 (when I entered high school) that I got a real cell phone.

1998 - $75 a month for 1500 anytime minutes and 10 cent a minute after that with Sprint. I thought I had the best plan in the world, until I saw how easy it was to go waaay over that 1500 minutes bcus none of my friends had a cell phone but always wanted to make a "quick call". Oh, how I miss my teen years...

It needed a bag lol but trust you couldn't tell me anything at all, I got it as generous gift and I literally squealed when I saw it

To be honest I remember it had a cord (maybe), more a car phone than a cell, let me ask my sister in the morning

mine was Motorola and sorta looked like this. And I was real cool because I had the spare battery pack too, which was almost as big as the bag phone itself!

PH i had pictured your response even before you responded!

I got mine in December 2003 2 years after Baby Jesus sent Digicel and brought us out of the stone age. They sold 100,000 phones in a month!!!!!! oversubscribed like a mofo with a population of 2.5 million at the time. i had no need for one before (all my friends were at school in the day, home phone to talk at night or ICQ MSn Msgr) or i just used my moms or brothers.


Look at the blue backlight, ball pop and all the games text msgsssssssss

1995

There were no 'plans'.   Every time you touched that phone you were charged.

It was not uncommon to get a $300 bill
