The 7yo found this phone in the bottom of a drawer. He has been playing with it for a few days and, today, he asked:
But how did you write in it?
I explained about clicking on a key once to get the first letter, twice to get the second one, etc…
No, but how did you write in it? There isn’t much place here for your fingers, he said, pointing to the screen.
Oh, you didn’t write on the screen. I explained. You pressed on this button, here. Then a menu appeared, and you scrolled up and down the menu using this button here… Like the mouse in your laptop, really.
He looked at the handset, again, for a while.
And how did you get the Internet? Or your apps?
And, suddenly, I feel very old.

Hahaha. Oh, my. And then to think it wasn’t even that long ago. And how I was so happy with T9 functionality for quicker typing. Loved those phones. I believe this one even had a camera!
It did, indeed 🙂
