From the days of playing snake on your phone, to the mobiles that had a colour screen and an internet browser, we discuss the first phones we had and why they still have a place in our heart.
I still miss this phone ☹ Simple and easy to use, I remember having a weird colour and always remember dropping it but it never broke. It's the ultimate brick.
Sony Ericsson Z300
I was the lucky owner of a Sony Ericsson Z300, that my friend won from a vending machine for $2 outside a Safeway supermarket in Albury. If only phones were still that cheap!
Sony Ericsson 2300
My first mobile phone was a purple Ericsson GF 768. It weighed 135 grams, had no games, monophonic ringtones and a battery standby of 60 hours.
Still one of my favourite phones of all time. It was a flip phone, I still miss the experience of whipping this bad boy out of my pocket and answering the call in one flash movement, call quality was amazing and it also had custom ringtones <3
Motorola Hiptop Slide
Not technically my first phone, but rather my first non-hand me down phone.
The all-round slick design combined with the slide out keyboard gave it a modern feel (for the time). It also had MSN messenger built-in as the default messenger. What more could you ask for?
We'd love to hear what ancient device you had growing up and could it still be used today? Comment below
