My take on it was also that the D-Terminal could have been already in his pocket at that point. Quite a while ago Garmmon translated a section about the D-terminal from the Digimon animation chronicle (It seems I requested it actually even though I can't remember it... *feels old*) and the only information about their origin was "after the incident 3 years ago, when Odaiba had been restored to normal, these wireless mail terminals were distributed to the children for testing. It was modified further by Koushirou and Miyako. "...which is still not saying much of anything but at least provides a time frame.
