    Motorola M3788E was my first on Orange and that was when I was eer about 14 as I was going on a school trip to London so I could call home and let my mum know I'm ok etc... after that I moved onto Sony phones so had a J70i and then a Sony Ericsson W810i and then around that time I started to carry two phones due to work so had a O2 XDA2, then a HP Mobile Messenger and then finally gave over on two phones as my work changed and moved over onto my HTC Touch Pro and finally onto my HTC 7 Pro which I love

    I think it was a Nokia 3210, not sure though! I replaced that with some form of Sony phone which I can find no trace of online... Had an orange LCD though.

    My dad still has one of those things in the garage from when he work at BT, he refuses to get rid of it keeps saying its value will increase, however I think the only thing that increases is the weight everytime I have to move it.

    My first phone was a Sagem myX-1, it had the tenancy to unlock itself and call people from my pocket during school.

    Motorola L7089. It had an IR port & modem which worked with whatever Palm I had at the time.

    To recreate the experience, I used the web browser on my current phone on the train yesterday.

    In that slightly sad way of the slightly older gentleman....

    I loved this as it was the closest you could get to having a Star Trek communicator in your pocket!
