Unlike many people who frequent this forum, I have not been an iPhone user till now. Hell, the iP5 is my first smartphone.............period.

For the last 4 years, I have been using an LG eNv2 clamshell:


Prior to that, it was the Motorola Razr V3m flip-phone:


Prior to that, a PrimeCo (!) Qualcomm phone:




Anybody else stepping out from the dark ages with me?

Feel free to share your phone progression (obsession?) here......I'm imagining some pretty impressive lists are out there.

I know how you feel. I had a Black Jack and then a Black Jack 2 before I got the iPhone 3G. The iPhone changed everything for me as I never was one to use my phone that much. I used the iPhone all the time. Eventually I got an iPad and now I use it all the time at night and the iPhone some during the day. It would be strange to imagine going back and using a blackjack now after having an iPhone for so many years. Glad you are enjoying your first smartphone.

You trolling? :( Cuz those are some ancient phones
Why would he be trolling? He clearly said in his post that he now owns a iPhone 5. Is there a requirement for posting here regarding how many/how long you've owned apple devices that we don't know about? Why are you resorting to questioning whether he's a troll?

Welcome to the "modern ages", Nemesis! :)

How do I,
Get through one call without you?
If I had to text without you,
What kind of life would that be?
Oh, I...
I need you in my pockets, need you to hold,
You're my world, my clock, my soul,
If you ever lose service,
Baby you would take away the LTE in my life,
And tell me now
How do I call without you?
I want to know,
How do I text without you?
If your battery ever was to go,
How do I ever, ever stream live?
How do I, how do I, oh how do I roam?
Without you...

Things that existed before you were born aren't "ancient"

Hey man, I don't know how many here work for a living.

I am STILL using my dumb RAZR phone!

Startled, u ask whyyyyyyy? Because I spend a grand total of $12.50 TWELVE DOLLARS FIFTY CENTS a month. A MONTH!

Sure I look at u all with ur fancy phones and my accountant says, ur monthly, after the $200 up front is gonna go up to $70. Well, now if my Daddy is paying for it, I would not argue.

So I waited and waited and waited and think am finally gonna go for a 4S, with a pre-paid plan if I can't get away with PayGo. No FB account, don't need to know every 2 minutes what my "friends" are doing. Just the occasional ask SIRI where is closest Starbuck, that's is. Why money grow on trees?

I find it ironic that you are judging people who pay more per month for an iPhone, yet you drink coffee from Starbucks...

Did your accountant bother to tell you that taking some spelling classes would be an excellent use of all the money you're saving, or that the $100/$200 you're paying them an hour could cover the cost of a months' service plan for a phone?

Touche! No I actually don't go to Starbuck but seems like the a place everybody know and I can't post the actually places I frequent. LOL.

Is a fun post ppl, there is no judgement intended. SOON I will be one of you so, hide the bill from the Ball&Chain!

I'm the same, my 1st ever smart phone. Used other people's smart phones, both droid and iOs and quickly learned which was superior.
