I had the white Sony Ericsson W350. Ironic considering the other model had orange on it.

OK phone, keyboard sucked and the flip down thing didn't even have real buttons. You simply transferred the pressure through it onto the keypad below. Oh well, it got me through the days!

No, that's a camera. On the first cameraphones you had to plug the camera in separately.

Nokia 8 series

I still have my old classic phones and use them from time to time. Only because they werent your ordinary plastic nokias available in the US. I think of them more as timeless classic cars that need to be driven sometimes

8890


8910i didn't have a picture of this one for some reason on my Facebook. Coolest one I think with the spring loaded release


8801 class ball bearing slider


Prototype 8600 which was posted on every tech site when I showed it

Had the same.... Virgin Mobile. So awful. But for some reason I miss the old days. Lots of nights staying up late texting and calling girls under the blankets on that thing in 6th grade.

I actually really like that phone. Never owned one, but I considered buying one a few years back just for the heck of it. I think the simplicity combined with the fairly eye pleasing design drew me to it.

25 cents a minute, something like 10 cents a text; those were the days. I never had any friends to call or text, so it wasn't that big of a deal.

Hasn't even been booted up in close to ten years, and the bastard not only worked, but still had enough charge left in the battery too boot and make a 30 second call. With the origial battery, might I add.

No, it's Motorola's first cell-phone breathalyzer. Prevents those embarrassing 3 a.m. drunk calls to your ex(es).

Funny thing is, the T720 was my second cell phone.

This was so long ago, I forgot what model it was... apparently my first was a Sony CM-M1300. I think I got it in 1998.

That my friend, I cannot discuss But man that was an awesome phone. Glass accents were unheard of in those days along with glass LCDs and ball bearing sliders. It easily went for as much as gizmodo got their iphone 4 prototype. And now they go for as much as subsidized iPhones.

I would still buy one if they came out with a new successor like this one. Sometimes its nice to have a phone that just makes calls and texts while looking high tech.

The Nextel walkie-talkie phones were alternatingly awesomely useful and terribly annoying
