Your Evolution of Wireless

Did you know that wireless service in Canada celebrated 25 years last year – how many of you remember car phones? What did your first phone look like? Post your own “evolution of wireless” pictures here.

 

To get us started, here's my first phone from 1998. I thought it was gorgeous. I also remember feeling so slick when I figured out how to get my gmail to go right to txt message for really important calls. Wink

 

I can't wait to see what you can drag out!

Cantel Amigo 3610 from the mid 90's. I think this is a picture of the same model.

Re: Your Evolution of Wireless

This was my first contact with the mobile world back in the late 80s, early 90s.  My dad had a similar one installed in his car.  I don't even know the plan that he had back then nor the model of it.  It was heavy and you almost needed cart wheels on the pouch if you dared carrying it around.

I had #3 as well! Guess it was quite the popular phone back in the day!

Re: Your Evolution of Wireless

This Nokia was my first cell, and I think it still turns on

Re: Your Evolution of Wireless

Here is my very first cell phone.  Nokia 6126.  I absolutely loved this phone and still would use it if it didn't have the white screen of death.  Still working on finding effective ways to flash it during spare time.
