    I definitely have a tech problem. How many of you do too?
    I'm thinking number 31 will be either the Oppo Find 5 or HTC One or Sony Xperia Z. Undecided as of right now.

    Current daily driver is the Nexus 4 though.

    Mother of god.....I can't even come close to that one. I think I've had about 10 cellphones total in my lifetime. Many of them your typical cheap/free when you sign up type deals.

    Can't be assed to post photos for all of these but from what I can remember...

    • Really old Motorola with an antenna sticking out the top
    • Nokia 3310
    • One of those cool slidey Nokias from the Matrix
    • Noka 7250i
    • Nokia 6230
    • Nokia 6230i
    • Sony Ericsson T610
    • Sony Ericsson K750i
    • Sony Ericsson W800i
    • NEC E313 (one of the first ever 3G phones!)
    • Nokia 6600
    • Nokia N-Gage
    • BlackBerry Pearl 8100
    • BlackBerry Curve 8310
    • iPhone 3G
    • Nokia 5800
    • HTC G1
    • HTC Hero
    • Palm Pre
    • iPhone 3GS
    • BlackBerry Curve 8520
    • BlackBerry Bold 9780
    • HTC ChaCha
    • Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
    • Samsung Galaxy S (OG)
    • BlackBerry Torch 9800
    • iPhone 4
    • HTC Sensation (might have been the XL or XE or whatever, no idea)
    • iPhone 4 (again because the HTC broke)

    There are probably more there I forgot too. I also owned more than one phone at the same time usually. Oh, and those may be in the wrong order but I think it's roughly correct.

    The iPhones were the only phones I've ever gotten new. The older ones I received from my dad/uncle as soon as they were changing to new phones. Except the iPhones, I've never paid for a phone in my entire life. :)

    Oh wow, I've had like 4 cell phones in total so far.
    - flip phone Samsung
    - slider phone Samsung
    - 3GS
    - 4S

    Used a Razer briefly between the 3GS and slider Samsung, but it wasn't really mine.

    Some kind of Candybar phone about 2001
    Motorola V60
    Motorola L6 (SLVR) - loved the phone, but the reception was bad. Used this one forever!
    a Red Sony-Ericson Flip
    Pantech P6010
    Samsung SGH-A157 (Laugh all you want - it's a phone!)

    I've been through four or five flip phones for work. They finally moved us to the iPhone 4. My first smart phone.

    Ok, I'm gonna try this, I'll do my best to remember them all. I'm sourcing all these pics from various places on the internet, so I hope they all show.


    1) My first phone, the Motorola V120 from Cingular Wireless
    [​IMG]


    2) I can't find a pic of my second phone. It was a blue and silver flip phone from Sprint. Apparently it was so bad, no one ever bothered to take a picture of it, lol. It was also the last time I'll ever use Sprint (long story).


    3) The infamous Motorola Razr, I think it was from AT&T
    [​IMG]


    4) The Samsung Blackjack, and before my current phone, the last Samsung I ever bought.
    [​IMG]


    5) When my Blackjack died, I had to use a loaner Razr until I bought my first "smartphone", the HTC Fuze. "Smartphone" is putting it nicely, it was terrible.
    [​IMG]


    6) Then I moved to Germany and needed a new phone, so I bought the iPhone 3G for 1€
    [​IMG]


    7) I got tired of that, so I picked up an unlocked Blackberry Bold 2 to use while I was over in Germany
    [​IMG]


    8) When I came back to the States, I bought the iPhone 4S
    [​IMG]


    9) Then I wanted to try out Android, so I picked up the Nexus 4
    [​IMG]


    10) And finally, my current phone: The Samsung Galaxy S4. I love it.
    [​IMG]



    Ok, I think that's all of them. If I missed one, then it wasn't significant enough to remember, lol.

    Yeah, it's sad I know.

    My first phone was the Motorola StarTac. I basically bought a phone, used it and then sold it for close to new price… it was pretty good, but it does mean I don't have most of these phones anymore. It was great in that I pretty much knew how to use every phone, which made me more unique among my friends.

    Currently, my primary phone is the iPhone 5. AT&T won't unlock my Lumia, so I don't use it much. The Z10 lacks some basic apps, again why I won't use it much. I just picked up the HTC One, and I have to say I absolutely love it!


    I'm not going to hunt for pictures… I had a hard enough time figuring out the proper model numbers.

    I never really cared for phones, since I really don't fancy talking on the phone. However, with the Galaxy S Blaze, I've found myself doing more, so I am thinking I am going to make the move to an iPhone. I've always wanted one since the iPhone 4S came out.
