When I was in middle school, there was one foolproof way to become friends with anyone: all you had to do was sit down together in the cafeteria, exchange a few words, and then switch cell phones with one another. This was actually an exciting thing to do, because everyone had a different phone! You could switch your LG Chocolate for a T-Mobile Sidekick and, with the silent understanding that all text messages were off-limits, happily spend the next hour (or however long free period was) looking at different games and ringtones that came pre-loaded on the phone. When you switched back, you were friends. It was like magic! Capitalistic magic.
Now, mostly everyone has an iPhone or similarly ubiquitous smartphone, so “looking at someone’s phone” is just not what it used to be. But, even if you don’t exactly want to go back to pre-smartphone days, you CAN go back to figure out which old school phone is the most “you.” Are you a Sidekick? A Nokia? Or, are you the ultimate, most-coveted token of earthly worth- the Motorola Razr? Find out with this quiz!
