In the recent OUAT episode we see Mary hold up a cellphone:
She mentioned to David that she got his text, so David has a cellphone and it using it to text. I wonder when Henry will get his own phone? So, we see tech advances are moving forward much faster now in Storybrooke. We see a payphone in Granny’s, but we jump over the glory of the pager straight to cellphones that have texting capabilities.
Things are changing in Storybrooke.
