Teens Use Flip Phones For The First Time


– Oh, man, it’s like a calculator. (techno music) – I know that if a flip phone
falls, you don’t have to worry about it breaking the screen. – I know that they flip and they’re old. – Kind of basic as far as cell phones go. (techno music) – What is this? – This isn’t real, this
isn’t real, it’s a toy. – It doesn’t even have a screen. – Dang, this is hella basic. – Where’s the on button? (cell phone dialing) – I’m guessing this is some
sort of a pager kind of thing. – Wait, is it only for calling? That’s so sad, and it’s ugly
too, this is really ugly. – When I hold this, I think I
could be in the 19-whenever. (techno music) – So this one’s got a screen, two screens. – This one is taking forever to turn on. – Maybe if I whip out the
antenna, it’ll go faster. (cell phone music) – Oh, it has music. – It’s got a nice moving fish background. – You can have pictures,
but you can’t take them. – So no selfies for you. (cell phone dialing) – Hello? It actually works. – It’s still alive. – Wow, it is pretty durable. – Don’t do that to my phone. (techno music) – Here it is, the Razr. – I always wanted one of
these in elementary school. – It’s pink, it’s cute, it’s flat. – Okay, this one is pretty,
it looks more elegant. – And it is much slimmer
than the other ones. – Oh, look, the– (cell phone music) – Tetris. – Looks like we got sent
a Greek text on this. – I’m sending a text to myself. – So you’ve got to press
the numbers multiple times to get to the letter that you want. – Where’s your space bar? – Oh, no space bar. – Oh, I figured it out,
the space is the hashtag. – Hi one. It’s one. – So I wanted to write, hey, how are you, but it turns out hem-mm how are you. – So it definitely takes a lot
longer to text on this thing. – Oh, it has phone camera, that’s cute. – Selfie skills. (camera clicking) – I don’t know if I took the picture. (camera clicking) – This phone was built for selfies. – This is not a picture I
would post on Instagram though. (techno music) – What is this? – Oh, my god, this is ugly. – Oh, shoot, I remember these. – You’d see them all the
time in, like, Gossip Girl. – No, yeah, I don’t know
what this is, this is huge. – [voiceover] What? – This is hip, this is what
was cool with the kids. – Does this thing not just fall right off? – Hold up, boom. – [voiceover] Okay, now it’s powered on. It’s got a nice jingle. – I like how the old
phones have nice jingles. – Instant messaging and
then text messaging. I guess back in the
day that was different? – I feel like it’s easier to
cheat your way through class. – Yeah, I’d probably use
this, like, during school. It’s pretty straightforward. You just have it under the table and then you can just do whatever with it. – This is the coolest. (techno music) – They were pretty cool. – That texting, it took forever. – The Razr is what began
the selfie revolution. – I low-key kind of got excited
when I saw the Sidekick. I guess that’s like the silver lining in the bronze age of cell phones. – I think I’m going to
stick to my smartphone. – I’m going to keep my iPhone. I need my iPhone, I love my iPhone. – The best part about flip phones is that when you’re
hanging up on somebody, you can just be like,
click, bye, you’re gone.
