  1. This is something I recall. It’s funny to think that we used to do something like this. It was probably to reduce traffic during peak hours, but all it did was shift the peak to after 9 p.m.

  2. LOL – when I was a teenager, I was in a long-distance relationship with a boy who lived an hour away. The hour was long distance 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    To pay off the phone bills that irritated my parents, I raked a lot of leaves.

  3. Since I seldom spoke on the phone, I had minutes outside of that time that I never used. People didn’t like being texted because and SMS cost about $0.35 to send or receive unless you paid for texting. I also recall long ass phone cords that spanned the entire building.

  4. Who remembers using collect calls to send voice messages to each other?

    ​​​&#

    “This is a collect call from: hey, meet me at the park at 5… do you approve the charges?”

  5. Calling cards are a type of business card.

    Calls to be collected

    Per month, a certain number of minutes and texts are available.

  6. Per month, I had 50 peak minutes and 200 off-peak minutes. Nothing was given away for free. After the 50, the peak minutes were like leasing a Porsche.
