I think you are actually stupid enough that someone might have to explain it to you, but the phone thing has been around since 84 (I think you may know who was president then)
I don't think I'm stupid but I was alive in 84 and I don't remember there being any cell phones. At least nobody I knew had one and they certainly weren't free.
First cell phone I saw was at my Uncles wedding in New Orleans. He was marrying into money and the brides father had a cell phone and was showing it off I was big and huge and cost him a thousand or so. I don't remember exactly how much but everyone said it was a lot.
That was early 90s or late 80s I want to say.
I don't know I was young back then but I imagine if Reagan would have told more people about the free cell phones in 84 he probably could have gotten even more votes.
