1. Your age
2. Do you know what this is (don't spoil)
It's a pager, it says on the thing itself.
They were still in use up to the early 2000s here, unless bernd is a literal underaged retard everyone here should recognize it.
Da, my dad owned one
2. I even had one when practiced at hospital
Also name of device is printed just on it.
Remember the pager fad
yes my mom used to have one in the 90s
it's that thing they use on gta3 and matrix
They were already annoying in the 90s. Just buy a fucking mobilphone, idiot.
I always felt anxious and unsecured due to the necessity to dictate your message to a stranger-operator.
That the thing they used in ER.
no, of course i don't know, because im stupid debil
yes. Been paging my homies tonight.
I saw them as a child but didn't get the point since cellphones existed
We are still operating 2000 units
But what for?
how did you type in the message in these things?
actually had ir
Hah! Found the underage!
You press red button and there on-screen keyboard appears.
28. I know but never had one.
Dogdors still use them in some places.
Its a pager but I never actually saw one RL. They were not popular here.
t. 31 year old.
Got a Telmi @ 12. First Handy Sagem @ 14.
Felt like Bateman.
2. I do, but I hardly know how does one actually use it, tbh.
I was too young when these devices were used, I never had one.
My father had one
2. Yes, but only because of Yakuza 0.
I only know it from E.R.
I have never seen one being used. How do you use them?
also there were watches stylized as pagers, those was cheap and shit quality
t. used gifted pager as alarm clock
I saw these all thru the '90ies on American TV but never had them on the Romania. They were like mobile callerID's that let you know someone called you.
Call the expensive Numer, tell something like a Anrufbeantworter. This Message will be forwarded to you pager as Text not voice.
There are also Amateurfunker who rebuild them for other frequences.
Also i have read that Amaterufunker Bernds where trolling Dealers who used it in the 90th.
It´s a cell Brodcast, Messages for the Device are selected on the device. So you could read every Message with a Funkscanner.
Dumb Algo, it´s more a Wallstreetthread.
yes, used to have one
It makes beep-beep and shows you the number of who has beepe'd you. You now search for public or any else phone and call the person/number back.
Yes it's the thing you hook up to your guitar jack to recalibrate it and it counts bpm and stuff
Dragon dido controller?
I saw it in American 90s movies
I found one on the ground when I was a kid. Same one as on the pic but dark red in colour.
No, but I would have seen it if there were any around. Don't think it was popular in Brazil.
It's literally written on the device.
I actually have one in use.
I had one as a kid for a few years as my mothers way of checking in on me
Yeah i used it instead of wrist watch when i was a kid
japan you so crazy
even fax is still ridiculously popular there last I checked
Yes but I've seen one live
Pager - used to send short text messages, was popular in 80s, early 90s and sometimes still used by doctors and elderly people in the west.
yes, it fucking reads in the device
Yes, but I've never seen one irl.
My parents had cell phones since I remember.
I even was an active user of this between 1998-2002
I know kids who got their phones in late 90s.
first cellphones was expencive, branded to operator and so on.
And powerful long-range radiophones was the thing, even though they where de-juro banned, in 2000s russia no one cares.
Age of christ
All you needed to get a job in the 80s/90s was a Personal Storage to base out of, a Physical Address (Mail & More), & a contact phone number.
There were actual payphones
everywhere back then
