    Im not gonna lie... when he said 70$ i was like "your buggin" but i remember my first Ericson/ATT phone that i racked an 800$ SMS bill... the flashback nostalgia alone, the look on his face... as close to time traveling as *most of us will ever experience. The fact that Linus's 1st phone had full Qwerty-keyboatd makes me wild jealous.

    This phone is high-tech compared with the one we had as juveniles. As kids, there were simply no affordable mobile phones available.
    So we got with like 14 a very modern Nokia 3210.
    Features: Greenlit-LCD, 4 Lines of Text, a game - snake, sms, telephone and ypu vould save up to 150 messages and 500 contacts!
    Even worse, a single sms costed like .20 cents and there were either none or like 30 at maximum included.
    I knew people nearly getting bankrupt by their children massivly sending to sms out.
    .. so Linus, enjoy! 😂

    You are Iron age, not stone age. Stone age would be the original Motorola cell phone.
    Myself, Im Bronze age. My first cell phone was a prepaid NEC G9. No ring tones, only display showed the number you were dialing (dont think it had caller id) and it couldn't text at all.

    I thought mine was the last alive :) well semi-alive as the battery is dead and I was unable to find a replacement. BTW you can only talk with the headphones plugged in so breaking the headphones is not a good thing too, at least I was able to find a replacement headphones, but that was like 10+ years ago when i was still rocking it, cuz it was and still is a very cool phone :)

    I was born in '86 and I remember the nightmare of every phone having some proprietary plug for power. In fact, the only device I had that charged over USB was my massive Rio Riot 20gb MP3 Jukebox and it only used USB 1.1. Cheers to modern day standards.
    I also remember having the LG Fusic w/FM transmitter built-in and that had the smaller than usual headphone port. That phone was amazing in a lot of ways except for that headphone port.

    My first phone was the Nokia 2110, it was heavy as hell and messages run through the screen and when you missed a word you had to start the message reading again^^ At this time here in germany a minute calling cost 1.99 DM ( YES it really was DM and not €, in € it would be around 1€, AND they always counted WHOLE minutes, so 1:01 minute would be 2 minutes :D ) and a SMS was about 50 Pfennig ( about 25 cents ). Ah yeah and of course you had to pay the phone ( which was around 500 DM ) and a monthly contract price of 69 DM. If you carried this 600gramm Monster in your jacket you looked super dumb, because it pulled your jacket down the side you´re storing it ^^

      I've had a hard time finding the exact phone, maybe my parents still have it (they still have the same phone numbers still with AT&T!) I think it was the microTAC (due to the flip only covering the keys instead of the entire phone)
