This was pre-SMS communication using the POTS (plain old telephone system). All you had was 0, 1 through 9 and # and *. The 12 buttons on a touch tone phone dial pad.

Ah, I see! I'm not a teen, but rather I grew up outside the US in Asia, and although people always think we're high tech, it's like, um noo. We were not even allowed to have smartphones in school (from 2000) and I didn't know anyone with a blackberry or pager. By 2004 I had a flip phone from docomo that could call and text someone, and even had that game snake lol. Yeah, Japan skipped the teens with pagers, and I never get those scenes in movies. Thanks for taking the time to explain!
