So, to all my friends out there, I just want you to know that I am currently without a cell phone…somehow I lost it in a span of 30 seconds of time and 50 feet in distance. All I know is that it vanished so I filed a claim (thank goodness I took the total equipment coverage) and will be getting a replacement phone delivered to my office tomorrow (Wed., 7/9).
But I drove out to visit my parents last night and it was weird not having a phone in the car. The last time I didn’t have a phone with me for a relatively long car trip (an hour or more) was before I bought my first cell phone in 1998, which reminded me of some of my old phones. The one pictured to the right is a Qualcomm QCP2700 from the late 90s. I think my first phone was a Motorola model, but my second was a Qualcomm very similar to the QCP2700, if not the same model.
