I think my first phone was Nokia 105 this exact model https://productz.com/en/nokia-105/p/WG606.  I still remember how happy I was when my cousin gifted it to me. I've used it for a couple of years, and it was unbreakable :D

My first mobile was LG E4oo. But the sad news is that when we are leaving in Vancouver. We hire a company names Demolition Contractors Vancouver to demolish our house. My first ever cell phone broke during demolition

Vintage-TIME-magazine-promotional-alarm-clock-telephone-land.jpg it was an alarm clock too.

My wife and I got that one back in 97 0r 98. We got feed up with telamarkers calling all hours of the day and night. We got our cellphones and ditched the home phone. We had our phones for six months. Our provider with Cingular wireless we paid the bill one day in the store and the next day we had no service. The store had closed down and had ceased operations. At that time in las Vegas T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint didn't have much of a present.we ended up learning about virgin mobile or some other repaid phone service stayed with them for two years

I believe mine was the original Motorola Razr.  I came late to the cell phone party.

I came from AT&T to T-Mobile (and brought the family) for the brand new HTC HD2! I even stood in line for it! 😎

My first phone was a Galaxy S6. It was nice but battery was pretty small. I still have it today.

My 1st was a 6watt analog bag phone (1992) can't remember the brand.  I rarely used it since it was $.50/minute.  My 1st handheld was a Motorola StarTac. 

like this this one was u to

mine was the boost phone this one

motorola starTAC.

My first phone was an att slimline!

I remember $500.00 for batteries (2) a charger and conditioner (decharger)

My first phone had caller ID Microtac and it was cool at the time!

I'm not to sure if it counts, in any case it was a Wilson business band phone relying on businessesthat had repeaters to communicate with their employees. You connect through your rsdio to their tower and on to an operator in it's esrly day's. In time Wilson who today make a very good cellular booster, a little pricey but real quality  They hsd one of the first Duplex phones on the market and my favorite accessorie the Ear Bone Mic! It didn't go in your ear it was like a collar that you couldhsve on and others wouldn't see it, so everybody thought you were just nuts.

I know you asked for one I've got to add the Wilson phone, which i still haveonly the size a a couple packs of cigarettes. The cost in 1969 was $895.95 the mic another $295.00. Batteries were $65.00  It weights less the one and a half poinds. My second Motorola csr phone which weighted 54 lbs. And had the head ot hand set in the car and actual radio in the trunk. My average monthly bill from Bell South was $300 to $550 per month, i sorry I can't recall ehat the per minute charge was,  by the way the Motorola was simplex, only one person could talk at a time by holding the button on the hand set. I remember we had to say in police talk 10/4 when we were done talking! So this post or reply is to long and wordy so I'll say... That a big 10/4 to you all.

I'm so jealous -- I didn't get my first phone until my senior year in HS, and it was only supposed to be used "for emergencies"! I remember that SMS were super expensive back then, and I went way over the allotment on my parents' plan. 😊

Motorola star tac      expensive

Nextel i100! I was in 8th grade at the time. The two way push to talk was the thing to have back then.

Welcome home.

The passion you could express with flip phones! Kids these days will never know how satisfying it was to slam your phone close while hanging up after an argumen.

In 2004 I purchased a Sony-Ericsson (forgot the model) on Cingular. Of course that changed to AT&T. Left AT&T last year to come here.
