Inspired by the current /. poll.

I was 26 when I got my first mobile phone in 1999.

16. From what little I had saved, but mostly parents' money. SE K700i - a real monster back then.

I still have it and it works, only the original battery can't even handle making a call anymore and it's too costly to replace.

7th grade, so 13-15. It was one of the brick phones, but I can't remember if from Nokia or Motorola.

Must have been 1992, I was 26. It was the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x darkgrey

Took a bit of a break after that and then got a Sony phone around 1998 or so.

Motorola DynaTAC 8000x > Sony CM-DX1000 > CMD-C1 > Nokia 3110 > 7110 > 6620 > 6680 > N73 > N95 > LG arena (yeah I know..) > HTC Desire > Nokia Lumia 800 > Soon to come Nokia Lumia 920

So this poll is basically "How old were you in 1997-2001?"

I think I was 25, my daughter was around 5 at that time so that is what I'm basing it on, partly due to where I was living as well. She was born when I was 20 so easy math. :)

My first cell phone was one that a friend of a client my ex-wife knew went dumpster driving behind a cell phone store, grabbed several they tossed and gave some to us. Never before was I so scared to go into a store (THAT SAME ONE as it was the only one in the area at the time), and ask to activate it on prepaid. I was afraid they would know it was tossed a few days beore. NOPE! Walked out proudly with a prepaid AT&T Go Phone at the time and never looked back. Times were a lot different then too. That was 14 years ago (That's all? Jeez!), and when things were starting to expand in my region cell wise.
