    What a hunk of junk compared to the iPhone.

    And now that I have had my iPhone for a year and a half, my cell phone is this:

    I've never had service with my iPhone...:(

    I have an older phone, but I don't know the model. I really, REALLY want to go back to using it instead.

    No, seriously, I liked it better. No camera, monochrome screen... I loved it. Retro is great.

    I had one of those Motorola Rockers. The one that had the 100 song iTunes module thing in it.

    I had a Nokia N91.
    Then the charger broke, and I didn't want to buy a new charger, so I had a Razr.

    Then the iPhone.
    Now the iPhone.
    But I still want to go back to the N91.

    SE K610i

    SE K610i - and I still switch my sim in and out between this and the Phone.

    3 yrs old, still kicks some goals over the iPhone, esp. email attachments, multiple photos in an outgoing email (and I still use it for these functions regularly), copy/paste... :D

    + small, compact, light weight, cost/plan, skype, email attachments, multiple photos in an outgoing email, copy/paste... ;)

    Nokias

    Here they are: My life from 2000 - 2008. I went from this to the iPhone 3G.

    (BTW - I find the complaining about MMS funny...I didn't know what it was until I read about it around here!)

    I had a succession of generic Nokia's for years, none of which wowed me until I got my iPhone just over a year ago.
    The last phone I had was this Nokia 6680, which I had for 2 years.

    I was never a phone geek at all, until I got an iPod touch, back in November 2007 - that prompted me to get the iPhone 4 months later.
    Now, I find myself watching video, etc of all the latest devices.

    I actually did have one of these ... got it in 1987!

    Before my iPhone, however, I had a Samsung Blackjack.
