Knokia 3310 , otherwise known a the brick, ironically enough the best phone I've had, just about indistructable, dropped off scaffold loads of times just used to bounce and switch itself off but always came back on again and good to go, modern ones arent as good and seem to break as soon as you sneeze on them

My first was built into a suitcase with a huge battery. It was a revelation when I finally got one of those Motorola bricks. Funny thing is ..... I always got a decent reception. ?

Motorola 7500 supplied by my employer. Enormous battery with about eight hours life and a SIM card the same size as a credit card. Got it replaced with a Knokia 6300.

My first phone was a Nokia. I think it might have been a 5110. Then I had a 6110 for years.

1990 and a Motorola Microtac, a proper "Beam me up Scotty" job. :upthumb:

The 1st one I bought was a Nokia 6670, still in a drawer somewhere (along with about 20 others) The screen was "massive".

This Sagem thing. Bought it off a mate for a fiver, and it had a few quid credit on it. Took me a week to save up the fiver!

Attached to the car, an old Ford Scorpio 2.8i with all the trimmings available then. Analogue Panasonic handset with a criminal bill of c.£300 per month. This would have been 1989/1990 or thereabouts. After that I can’t remember but I still have the same old 0836 number (these days 07836).
