Isn't it funny to think how awesome we used to think our old phones were?

This! Probably one of the best phone of all time !

but I honestly have had so many phones since then I can't even name/count them, between 15-25. No Idea, I usually change every 4-7 months.

Anyone else do this ? Or am I weird.

I got my first "mobile" in 1995, and this is the closest thing I can find that looks like it. A Motorola Bag Phone, that I had hardwired into my '94 Mustang GT. Ah, those were good times.

Pretty sure this was it, Nokia 3570. This thing was virtually indestructable.

Looking at all the cell phones posted, I'm young



Me and my dad had one each, one black and one blue.

Purchased in 1993, it was $99 and included a free leather case and extra extended battery. I seriously enjoyed using this phone but back then, the airtime was expensive, about $200 for 6 hours.

The phone could retain a call when swapping batteries and was analog. Sometimes, the sound quality was much better than what we have now.

Panasonic model EB-3511

Had the old Motorola "brick" back in 1995. Moved on to a StarTac as soon as they came out & didn't upgrade again until the Audiovox Thera Pocket PC came out in 2001.

Went Blackberry after that.. Various Curves, Storm 1st gen, Tour, then I finally gave up on the lack if apps and have had the iPhone 4 since 2010.

Mine was similar to this, but not this exact model. All I remember is that it was on Orange pay as you go

I then had a 3310 followed by an old HTC windows mobile 6.0 phone then an iPhone 1 which was 179 brand new when O2 were selling them off cheap within 3 months of it coming out!

Mitsubishi Trium.

Thumb resize.

I remember clearly the first time i whipped it out at school; i got laughed at.

I stopped using it that very moment and saved up to buy a Motorola T720 a few weeks later which was much cooler.

Thumb resize.

Not my first phone (might have been my second), but the V60 was one of my favorites.

I'm pretty sure it was this:



Oh yes, I looked pretty awesome carrying that in Primary School. Moved onto the Nokia 3210 directly after this which is bringing back lots of memories of Snake.

This was my first cell-phone that was all mine and didn't have to share. Got it freshmen year of high school. I had the notorious Nokia's but shared them with my brothers.

SAMSUNG N400
