My clearest memory of such a phone is my older sister, in her teens, sitting on the floor below the phone talking for endless hours (it seemed) to her friends about the usual "girl garbage" while no one else could use it.  Lol.

Too new!  It is push-button.

@brush, LOL! I remember when push-button phones were so exotic! State of the art in communication. I begged my father to get one for the house.

Here is my telephone in London, which was in daily use until I had the line cut-off, on moving to France only seven years ago. Interesting, what may be considered exotic at any given time - though I think @brush's green wall-rotary is super exotic !

The REAL good old days!  The cell-phone, just as a phone to have with you for travel and emergencies, it was the greatest invention since the phone itself. 

But when the cell-phone became a camera, the internet, GPS, Texting, and a zillion other things, that is when it became the WORST invention since the original phone.  Agree or disagree, I feel strongly that this is fact! 

Our society has become a nation of zombies hypnotized to the point of every one being zoned out of life happening around them because they are only tuned in to their cell-phone.
