I was talking to a friend in her 20's and this subject made me feel old. I was 40. I had just gotten a divorce and I needed a way for people to contact me. I had always had a landline before.

I think it was around 15/16. It was a Nokia 3330 - wouldn't be surprised if the thing still worked.

I was probably around 14?
It was an LG Chocolate my mom had laying around the house and I loved it.

OmG Nokias were the best. I had one and I dropped it down the toilet 4 times, once it fell out of the car window on the way to college, and I'd use it while in the shower and that sht still worked for years.

How did you clean it after dropping it in the toilet?

Just to put it in there, the toilet was clean, tyvm
I did douse it with detol sprays though and left it on the window sill to dry for a few days and it was as good as new.

With my job if I drop my phone I don't want it back. There is no clean place at a wastewater plant. That's why I have insurance.

Lol, I doubt detol would solve that problem.
What phone do you have?
11 months ago - Sunday 8/9/20 - 9:25:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
Samsung Galaxy S8 Active

Then yes, I wouldn't even trust a smartphone down a clean toilet.
Although, my sister dropped hers in the water when they went to the beach and my mom saw a tip on tiktok where you put your phone in a bag of rice for a day and it absorbs all the water.
Now it's fine but the power button doesn't work anymore.

I was 9 or 10. I had no-one to call and back then that's all phones could do. It didn't even have Snake.

I was 41 and needed to be contactable all the time for the first time. Before that I refused to have one because I didn't want people interrupting me to do their job for them.

37 for me. I fought it too. I called them electronic leashes.

I don't remember my exact age but I was over 18. It was one of those Nokia phones that I put a red faceplate on and the best thing about it was I put a ring tone on it...The Doors "Light My Fire". It was my favorite thing about the phone.

I put Loser by Beck as my ringtone on my first phone.

This was my first phone, in 1999. My parents got it for me when I turned 16 and bought me a car- they didn't want me to have any issues and not be able to call.

Now I have Prince's 1999 playing in my head.
