1. Feeling undeniably cool when you were one of the first to have one.
2. And even cooler when you got a flip phone.
3. And the oh so cool car phone
4. Having a phone that could go several days on a full charge.
5. How exhilarating it felt to be able to send texts instead of call…
6. …even though you had to type out your texts like morse code…
7. …due to your phone having actual buttons.
8. Perfecting the art of condensing your text to 160 characters.
9. Spending all of your spare time trying to beat your high score on Snake.
10. The suspense of revealing a text message line by line.
11. Getting excited when a MIDI ringtone of your favorite song became available.
12. Buying a cell phone holster for your belt.
13. And having to delete all your texts to make room for new ones.
