    What your first cellphone?

    As the title says, what was your first cell phone and what provider?

    Mine was US Cellular when I was going to college in Maine. It was one of the first Nokia phones. Always loved Worm on that phone! haha




    I remember my parents starting off with a huge bag phone with Bell Atlantic. My dad was offered by his friend to get into the business because my dads friend started Bell Atlantic. My dad didnt think it was going to go anywhere and declined to be partners. HA. Stupid decision!

    My first phone was a Audiovox CDM-9000 with Bell Mobility. Same as in the picture except mine was blue.


    This thing was bulletproof mechanically. I was using it from 2002 to 2006, when I got my BlackBerry.

    Ericsson CF388 and we bought it at Best Buy and the antenna needed to be attached, it had a sim card, a door that flipped over the keypad and it was bulky...this was around 1997 or 98. The most you could do was program some numbers in it and that was about it.

    My first cell phone was the Motorola pre clamshell phone back in 1996. Back in the days where you only had free weekend minutes after 9pm and your regular phone plan was like 60 min. a month.

    Nokia 3390, then a nokia 6800, then a Samsung T509 and then this blackberry 8100. I still have all my phones except the T509. The keyboard stopped working and I sold it on eBay to a guy who fixes phones.

    If technology grows fast then why does my can opener sound like it has a V8? Lol
    Life is like a movie, you've sat through half of it and its sucked so far, it probably isn't gonna get great right at the end to make it all worthwhile. you shouldn't get blamed for walking out early

    I was a proud owner of what came to be known as the "Zach Morris" phone, man what a brick, and no battery, always had to keep it plugged into the car!

    I might be the old guy here because my first cell phone was a bag phone. If I remember right it was made by Uniden, but that could be wrong. Did have one from motorola later on. Remember keeping track of every minute I used too!!

    I remember the days of recognizing the number when they're calling in and calling them from your home phone after they've gone to voicemail.

    Lol, Had to save your minutes!
