Does Prince not own a cell phone?

In the song U're gonna see me he says "send me a page on my 2 way, i'll hit you back with no delay". Who is still rocking pagers in this day and age? lol. I just think it's funny, lol!

As not english-speaking, I've been wondering what a "2-way" is, and when searching, I also learnt that it's still populair among emergency-staff e t c, though it don't get overload like cellphones sometimes does. It was the best communicater during the 9/11 disaster, for example. I guess for Prince to make sure to get in touch with his love, is kind of an emergency situation...biggrin

Actually, we do NOT know if it was written specifically for that album. It's very likely that a studio version of the song existed before the live recording. wink

You don't know that. As much as he loves computers and technology, logic would deduct that he does have some sort of PDA.

They make two-way radios. I think it was just a popular term, myself. In 2001, the phrase "Text me later" wasn't in the vernacular.

So in the pictures where he's seen talking on a cellphone type device it's either a radio thingy or he borrowed one?

He likes the ability to remain incognito. He often borrows one, but doesn't carry one.

A lot of PDAs that are set up for business use allow you to send a page.

People PALEAZ...

A 2 way is a form of communication not a device.

That means I call you ... you call me.

It ain't a pager or even the symbolism of a cell phone.

It means ya called, I rang, ya got the message, calls back no delay (2 way).

Nobody blocked straight up communication on the dang phone.

Even if ya ain't home... speed dial back ... even, IF, in RUSH hour traffic.

LOLOLOL.

Take Care,
QuietSeven
