Being a Teenager in the 2000'sWatch
Suspect it strongly depends on the socio-economic background (and country) you grew up in. My family didn't have internet until around 2002 (and we only had it because my step father worked in IT and needed it for work), and there were other kids in my class at the time and later who didn't have it. I also didn't get my first mobile until 2007 because my family couldn't afford for me to have one and even then, I didn't really use it for anything other than listening to music. So I can confirm that my 90s childhood was indeed Internet and mobile free.
I was going to say something similar too. My mum didn’t get her first mobile phone until 2007 - that was a slim Motorola. The only other one we had in the house was one of those massive brick phones from God knows when but no one used it. We didn’t have internet until maybe 2006/7 so before that, I happily spent my time playing on paint and CD games.
Oh, completely misread your last post. In which case I can only fall back on age again. If you were only using MSN in 2006 I assume you weren't at university then, which again can explain some of the discrepancy (assuming I'm right about that, which given my last post there's every chance I'm not).
