    Mine was a Sony CM-R111 about 17 or 18 years ago. Lovely little phone, about the size of a credit card.

    No high res TFT screen. No screen! 8hr standby time on the standard battery and terrible reception in poor cells unless you attached the 6" whip antenna. How did I even send an SMS? You couldn't this was pre-GSM. You had a couple of coloured LEDs to judge battery life & signal strength and that was that. 9 speed dial numbers was your limit.

    Yeah I miss it. It died on me so it got binned, should have kept it for the LOLs. This was back in the days when phones were just that... phones. Why did I ever throw this thing away! Oh yeah it went "Weeeeoooooeeeoooooo" in my ear 1/3 of the time.

    Pic from google. This is with a 3x as thick hi-cap battery by the looks of things.

    Edit: I'm now rocking an iPhone 4S, I think I've only been through six phones over the intervening years.

    Nokia 1208, Even came with snake. And of course, being a Nokia; It survived almost everything. I had to basically take a mallet to it to destroy the damn thing in the end. It's not a 3310, but it was close enough.

    My first phone was some pos philips thing I got on a deal with celnet.

    My first proper phone was a Ericsson T18, 3 line green display with a flip and voice dialling. The flip was brilliant for dramatic effect I miss the flip not the phone.

    I had a 3410, bought it myself out of EMA money when I was at Sixth Form. It was kept in pretty good condition and survived many a fall!

    Ericsson GA318

    If I remember rightly, my parents bought this for me after I started riding motorbikes, so that if anything went wrong I could at least call for help. It worked, I liked it.

    Ericsson T10.
    It had a flip down cover for the buttons, and a 3x12 character display. Worked fine for calls and texts, that's it. Actually, it was rather good.

    3210 back in 1999 on Virgin Mobile for £150, built like a rock and took many a beating when I was younger. However the first one I bought had to be replaced after a week due to me dropping it and messing the screen up. Luckly there was no physical damage to it so I was able to replace it without paying for a new one.

    • Nokia 8210. Don't miss it, but it was acceptable for that time.
    • Nokia 6230. Good for that time too.
    • Nokia 6230i. Slow garbage.
    • Nokia 6280. A bit better garbage.
    • HTC Touch HD. Total Windows Phone 6.1 Garbage. Yes. With capital G.
    • Motorola Milestone. Good Android phone, bad Motorola support.
    • HTC Desire HD. Good phone, still in use (gave it to my brother).
    • Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Current phone :).
