My first was a slightly less embarassing Qualcomm QCP-2700.... It looked something like this:

HAHA I loved the cellular one car phone! When I got my new jeep, I went to cingular to see if I could get an added line on my bill and the phone re-connected. They laughed at me and I walked away shamefully.

I had a brick noki
Tiny Sony Ericcson brick style
Samsung Slider, something like p777?
Samsung slider number 2, the one currently out for cingular
iPhone.

Nokia 3395:


Then I broke that one and got another. Then I lost that one and got some Siemens cell phone ... it had a black and white screen, was super small, excellent battery life.

Then I lost that one. I think I dropped it in a lake when we went water skiing ... I really don't know where it went.

After than, I got a Motorola V560:


Then I broke that and got a Nokia 6320:


Then I got a Nokia 6682:


Then I got an iPhone 8GB:

Not sure of the model off-hand (at work) but I'll edit this when I get home and can find it. Anyhow, this is my first cell phone...it was through Alltel and my plan had a whopping 50 anytime minutes (nothing else) and costed a cool $20 a month.

I remember thinking I was extra rad with the pleather slip case with the belt clip, and I PROUDLY displayed that sucker on my belt. At work, in college, oh yeah...I was the MAN.

Thank goodness for the iPhone.

LOL we have a very similar purchase history -- two exact matches plus a close match, and the same number of phones so far.

I wonder, not that I question anyone's right to purchase as many cell phones as they need, but ... for all of you who've owned a lot of phones (e.g. on average changing 1x/yr or more often, as opposed to changing once every 2-3 years)....

- Did you have to pay a lot of termination fees or did you have pretty good luck with that?

- Did you resell or hopefully at least recycle all those phones?

My best friend has had twice as many cell phones as me, in the same time period, because he constantly breaks them. But he's just a monkey klutz.

NeoPoint 1000 on Sprint PCS in 1999, OH YEAH!



So many other "smart" phones since then...running my BlackJack in tandem with my iPhone right now until I get a good corporate email solution for the iPhone.
