@joelhamill Had one for a short while before GSM mobile phones. Had to carry change for the telephone kiosks, also a dying breed.
@JMaxB Yeah, good luck finding a pay phone. Well, at this point would you even want to use one?
@joelhamill I do remember them being sold (i.e. ads on TV), but I don’t know of anyone who had them. I get the feeling they were not very common here.
@lmika I knew multiple people who had them. Crazy little things. A mobile message receiver before cell phones.
@joelhamill I remember how people used them for rudimentary texting though they only displayed a line of numbers. "07734" upside-down spells "hELLO."
