I don't remember the model number, but mine was very similar ... seems so long ago now.

My uncle had one of these when they first came out. He owned a multi million dollar business at the time and he drove a SL500.

Man I always thought he was so bad ass.

I remember he used to have like twenty spare batteries around his house and car!

You're use of past tense makes me wonder what happened to your uncle...

Anyway here's mine:

Hand-me-down Nokia 3310! I loved that thing.

I think this was my model, it looked like this one. Except mine said Cingular on it. It also came with a goofy looking rubber skin that wrapped around it. Had a built-in FM radio and allowed text messaging, before they started charging for it.






I then moved on to a crappy Sprint flip phone, don't remember the model but I do remember it was silver and blue. After that it was the original Razr, then the Samsung Blackjack, then another Razr because the Blackjack crashed. Then a POS Motorola flip phone that I threw at a wall, lol, again don't remember the model. Then the HTC Fuze, the iPhone 3G (my first ever Apple product), a Blackberry Bold 2, and now my iPhone 4S.

First phone I didn't share with my dad, Nokia 3100. Got it as an middle school graduation present in the summer of 2003. It was the most rugged phone I've ever owned, too.

Nokia 8265 on AT&T, the first phone after the popular 8210 in Charlies Angels. The 8265 was the first one with a WHITE screen instead of the crappy dim green, loved it to death and indestructible.

After that, I had a KRZR on Verizon:





I REALLY loved that KRZR and still do, it was the absolute PERFECT size.

Would a KRZR work on today's networks???

I was going to claim win, but you got me by a few years. Worked on radio frequencies, right?

Nothing crazy!

He sold the company, retired, been in the stock market ever since. Now he is all about "saving" money. He now drives a used 2004 Lincoln and uses coupons while shopping! LOL. He's "normal" now. No longer the bad ass. . . .

Despite the many conveniences and resources of a smartphone, I have to say that I miss the simplicity of old-school phones. Just plain ole calling and texting.
