25 Products We All Owned As A Kid That Defined The ’90s

A pager was how you stayed “connected” to your friends.

If by “connected” you mean that someone would page you from a random pay phone and you had exactly 2 minutes to find a quarter and another pay phone to call the number back and just hoped it would be your friend on the other line and not some rando. Pagers were the first text messages, really. We could send messages in code, where you had to flip your pager upside down to read it. LOL, what the actual hell. How did anyone anywhere actually communicate? We texted our kid 143, and they asked if there was something wrong with their autocorrect.
