My first cellphone was a $3500 car mounted unit with a shoebox size unit in the trunk and the control head bolted to the center console. [...] Back then, in Los Angeles, the per minute price was 45 cents/min PLUS long distance of 25 cents/min for LD calls on top of a monthly fee of $45 which included NO minutes. If you were roaming, which usually meant anywhere outside of the metro area, the price was either 95 cents/min for a different carrier or "only" 69 cents/min if it was your same carrier PLUS 25 cents/min long distance for both incoming and outgoing calls.
