Your First Cell Phone
« on: February 19, 2013, 08:32:54 pm »
What age did you get your first cell phone (if you have one), and what model was it?  Post a picture here!

I think I was around 14 or 15, and it was a Nokia 1100.  You could throw that thing so high in the air and it would land on compact dirt unscathed.  :o  x_x

Sanyo VI-2300


Mine was that green color, too.

Got it in... 2005 maybe? Or 2004? Used it all the way until this past August/September. Never saw a point in upgrading until I could get a smartphone.

Darned thing was tiny and indestructible.  I still have it in a box somewhere around here.

Linky not working :/

Looks pretty similar in size to the one I had. Did it have a color screen, or is it older than that?

Thought about one, but since I can't drive I decided it
wasn't worth the extra expense. Besides I never cared
much for talking on a telephone, much less answering
one.   :D

I got mine when I was 11, because I was always going to be the first one home when I got back from school. At that point, my parents usually didn't get home from work until around 7:00 PM and my brother and sisters were still in school at this point.

It was a Nokia brick. I literally chucked it against a concrete wall and there wasn't a scratch on it.

That Nokia was a great phone.  You could order an extended battery for it that extended standby time to over a week! :)

That's just one of the reasons why it is the #1 selling mobile phone ever by units sold.
