    Well at least being 40+ means I've got a lot more money now to waste on phones and other gadgets.

    and we get to tell the young ones stories of back in the day when we had cell phones the size of a brick, and had a one line led display. and we loved it! lol, my first cell phone was in 1994, or 95. It was a Motorola Omega.. OMG that thing was HUGE!!

    @powerchucker My first Motorola didn't even have a sim card! It was hard coded. Battery lasted 2 hours standby and about 5 minutes call time.
    Now I do feel very old.

    And no text messaging back then. I remember when sms came out and I waited eagerly for it to appear on my phone. We were amazed at the technology!
