Question: Did You Ever Have a Beeper?

While it led to the technology that gave us cell phones and smartphones today, it's easy to forget these little guys ever existed even the more advanced ones. Once almost everyone had a cell phone these went away like the dodo and at this time, I was just a kid in school, and I really had no use for one. I do find it neat when technology suddenly and abruptly becomes obsolete.

  2. No, but I worked with somebody who did, and without going into too much detail, he had an outside source of income in which the beeper played a part.

  6. Yes, I had one. Try texting on one with just numbers and trying to figure out the codes. Every day was a brain teaser when you had a pager!
