Calls to Eretz Yisroel on a special plan with AT&T (long distance, not wireless) = $2.50 (I think) for the first minute, $0.75 for each additional minute, and that was a bargain over the regular rates.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

We had to hurry "long distance" calls, cuz they cost money.

Or those many plans that had the first incoming minute free. ...o how many fifty-nine-second calls we had in the call history...

When my Gameboy color couldn't be played in the dark and had to keep on switching the AA batteries.

When my palm pilot would delete everything if the battery got fully drained.

When 128 MB SD cards were standard and the 1gb card was over $120.

You evidently don't live in Lakewood. You still see that happening.

I'm pretty sure I still have my first pair of glasses. They were huge and still look ugly.

My younger brother once asked me, "Why did people's cheeks have to see, back then...?"  :D

When we used to use a rotary telephone.

When we listened to record players.

When I went to pick up the phone to call someone and got the terrible noise of the router being connected because my dad was using the internet.
