    Then a horde of Nokias and a Siemens C45 (remember shoot the balloons?)

    Nokia 5210 - chubby little thing.

    Also had:
    Sony z600 - Terrible in every way.
    Sony K750i - Fantastic. Camera was amazing for its time.
    Nokia N73 - terrible, fell apart
    Nokia N82 - amazing phone. It had an incredible camera, real flash, GPS, wifi, decent MP3 player, a few days battery life, VoIP and an alright browser, and the best keypad ever. I could text people in lessons without taking the phone out of my pocket.
    Samsung Galaxy - first non-google android phone. This was terrible. Had to ditch it after a couple of months.
    HTC Legend - looked gorgeous, but was otherwise a bit meh.
    Nokia E6 - not mind blowing, but the best phone I've owned yet! Real keyboard, good camera, excellent battery life, made of stainless steel

    First phone was a Motorola T180 on black on one2one.

    Seriously contemplating the purchase of a Nokia 3310 for Airsoft weekenders. It would save risking my lovely HTC from getting shot out and the 3310 is available for peanuts on eBay...

    Mondial ML808 was the first mobile I had. I think my second phone was the matrix one from S/E.

    I was Neo.

    I also had one of those, loved it, the roller was so awesome to use. However, it was not the phone from the matrix ;) the common misconception held by many, it was simply the mass marketed sprung slider phone which made Nokia millions.

    This is the actual matrix phone

    My first phone was this pile of utter garbage

    In a land where all of my phone-bearing friends had Nokia 5110s, I was my own man, and proud.

    I do kind of miss it, too.

    I might reminisce... memorable phones that followed, to strain my brain...

    • Nokia 8850 - Sooo shiny, with a blue screen, say no more
    • Nokia 8890 - As above, but I could take it with me to the states, result. until the screen started going, continuously, think it was replaced with a...
    • Sony Ericsson T68 - Not the powder blue "i" version, the gold-ish one. Colour screen, joystick and FREAKING BLUETOOTH (which nothing used)
    • Nokia 8910i - seduced by good looks, but sadly not that great a phone
    • Nokia 9210i - Seduced by functionality, but not entirely portable
    • Nokia 8800 - Seduced by looks yet again, and not a great phone again... but so damn pretty that I put up with it for quite a while. To this day the sexiest phone I ever owned.
    • Some more phones, I think I went through a bad patch here, as nothing stands out, but did have a SE P900, Motoroly RAZR, Nokia 72something somewhere around this time, perhaps others, but nothing memorable
    • HTS TyTn2 - Stellar hardware, crippled by WinMo 6.5, shame, still loved the phone though
    • HTC Magic - still have it as a backup running CM7 - love it to bits, if a bit slow
    • Nokia E71 - work phone, still have it in a drawer, unused, but another really great phone crippled by a pants OS
    • HTC Desire - Nuff Said
    • HTC Desire S - Like above, but better
    • HTC One S - Current phone

    That was fun

    Right, time to see if I can actually remember all mine:

    Siemens A50
    Nokia 3310
    Nokia 3220
    Sony Erricson K750i
    Samsung D900i (had a nice quirk of turning all my contacts names in to binary)
    Nokia N78
    HTC HD2 (loved this phone, if only it wasn't for the poor WM6.5)
    Samsung Galaxy Nexus

    Amazing how far tech has actually come in a relatively short time.. Kinda want another HTC, I just don't like the HTC Sense GUI, that's what put me of the Sensation.

    It's definately not the first I've owned, but this is what I have now!

    Nokia C1

    [​IMG]

    Oh yes! Basically work gave it to me when I moved out here. As they wont pay for a data plan it works out pretty well. Surprisingly I dont massively miss my iPhone4. Yeah it was quite nice to have the net etc on it but you really learn how easy it is to live without it when you have to. It's quite freeing only having a phone that talks and texts!

    I've still got it somewhere with all my other mobiles. They don't build to the same quality any more.

    Motorola MicroTAC -- state of the art in 1989! Law firm I worked at arranged an employee deal to get phones and plans at decent rates. Ostensibly it was so the attorneys could have them, but any employee could participate.

    First phone was Nokia 3210

    [​IMG]

    Bought a Nokia 6822 shortly after, because I hated texting by numbers

    [​IMG]

    Then a HTC Desire in 2011 :) Took me long enough to upgrade

    Had this for about 3 years, it was slow-witted and generally a bit crap. Then again, it did have pacman:

    [​IMG]

    After that, I had this little gem. Hexagonal keyboard? :lol::

    [​IMG]

    SE K810i was next, brilliant phone in every respect. Loved it, would have kept it if it wasn't cheaper to upgrade to a...
    Nokia X6. Seriously cheap, had great (offline - suck it Google!) sat-nav. A proper smartphone without the cost.

    Now using this sexy mama:

    I remember ordering it from the Carphone Warehouse through my Sky box back in the day, cost me £50!
