    I never remember pagers getting that mainstream compaired to America, it must have only been a brief period before mobiles came down in price.
    Only knew one person who had a pager, a deaf friend, around the time I got my first mobile.

      I remember my Dad had one for work for a couple of years before getting a mobile to replace it & his carphone.

      One or 2 friends had them at college.

          My friend had that blue phone. I remember thinking how sleek and modern it was. I had a good chuckle when I saw that picture.

            Bosch 509e it was my first pay and go phone and it was on Orange and it was in orange too. It cost me 120 back in 1999. I have six of them in the attic three in orange and three in white.

              Hey all! Just found this site whilst idly killing time. Anyway, to answer the question, NEC 9 A (analogue pre ETACS!) in early 1988 thru work as a youngster - I was 18 - 19 and it really was quite a novelty back then. It was quite hefty but could JUST be squeezed in to a coat pocket... sort of! Would've set me back almost 2,000 had I bought it myself.

                It must have been flash back in the day compaired to the original "brick" ones.

                  Yup - certainly was! Spiffiest thing this side of a Mobira (Nokia's original UK name) Cityman back then. No idea how it would have lasted long term though, it seemed pretty flimsy in comparison to the Mobira & Motorola models of the time. I knew a chap who had an original Cityman 1320 right up 'til analogue switch off - and on the original NAM too! Surely a record??

                    Being the Luddite that I am I resisted getting a mobile until just this year. My first and only mobile is an LG Smartphone.

                      It was a Motorola flip phone that looked like a brick in the early 90s

                        Mine was an Orange phone, can't remember much else about it except it was faulty and I can't even remember what the fault was.

                              That was my first pay as you go phone. It was the Bosch 509e, it cost me 120 from Dixons back in Nov 1999.

                                Mine was a Trium. It worked, well 6 calls out of 10 connected! It was on BT Cellnet I believe I got it around 1999/2000. Still in the drawer I think!
