    Mine was a Trium Astral first. It looked like it would be so much better than the 5110's everyone was using. It wasn't.

    I remember my dad having a Vodafone car phone in the early 90's which absolutely blew my mind. A phone...IN A CAR?

    Not long after I got my NEC carphone, I spotted an accident at Spaghetti Junction where there'd been an oil spill and a couple of cars had hit the armco. I called 999 using hands-free but lifted the handset to talk to the police controller (no laws in those days). When I'd finished, I replaced the handset and continued down the Aston Expressway singing along to the radio. A minute or so later, a voice came out of the hands-free speaker "Have you finished the call mate?" He never commented on my singing.

    A Phillips C12 (the one on the left). It was a great little phone on BT's first pay-as-you-go service. It was so nice not to have to use phone boxes anymore (I was in the army at the time).

    I loved the Symbian OS. Does anyone remember the 3650 though? What were Nokia thinking with the keypad

    I think an unbranded version of this was my first cell too, an Ericson before sony got involved. It could recive texts but not send them, it may have eve been an older one.

    I had one of those Phillips C12's for a bit, thought it was quite good at the time! Remember the 6630's too, a few team leaders had them when I had my 6230.

    I had the original Vodafone PAYG here, the Motorola A130 here and I even have a Ford Mobile phone in a box here that was given to my grandparents as part of buying a new car at the time thats a bit older than the phone I have.

    Realised in all this as well that I have had probably easily in excess of 25/30 phones since then as well.

    I too had an early vodafone PAYG phone. I think it was an Alcatel, which was analogue (so no texts). I upgraded the battery to a higher capacity (thicker) version for more talk time. It had a big pull out ariel, no SIM card and was blue.

    First was in 2000 - Philips Diga. Then a Savvy. Much amusement with the voice dialling at the pub...

    Then a Nokia 3210, then a 3310, and a 7650 Symbian. Then a Motorola MPX200 with WM2003 ROM. Then an Ipaq 514 Voice Messenger, and now a secondhand HTC Wildfire with Android 2.2.x.

    Can't get the bugger to root or upgrade, and am currently upsetting the TTS engine and downloading offline google maps in preperation for going out on a jaunt with the kiddlywinks.
