You wanted to call a friend? Better grab your enormous list of phone numbers:

And don't get me started on if you wanted to call literally anyone else:

You want to open a program? Hope you have 35 minutes:

Or... this... THIS:

And cellphones? Well, most of owning a phone was just looking at this screen:
