James,
Thanks for correcting the phone thing I was thinking they called it a box phone but I was very little when I first seen. Although I guess the reason I thought is was called a box phone is the shape it was and hearing people call it a box. When it comes to the novel I'm writing the town and other places are all fictional none of them really exist. But I'm thinking of writing another novel that is about a how a person grew up and became who they are. I guess if I really need historical facts I could ask my husband he knows a lot about history and the dates things have happened in history. I may just base it in this era instead though to make it easier for me. Thank you for your advice it really helped James. :)

In Kansas, we simply called phones in cars "mobile phones". Those that were carried around were "bag phones", although now I can't ever remember seeing a bag phone in. I guess I didn't hang around the important people who carried them.

Yeah I remember seeing those growing up but it was near the end of there time. And that was when pagers were becoming popular for kids to carry although I never had one.

I had to use a pay phone to call up that special girl to get a date with her to get some privacy. This was in the big town, where they had dial phones - out in the country, where I lived, I had to contend with a half-dozen or more people on the party line. Privacy on party lines was not an issue, as there was none - some of the other members used the phone as others used radio or TV. We could tell when they were on as the volume dropped dramatically.
