    These are my favorites. I've also owned a number of other devices that go in the "pile of dishonor," including a bevy of Android bricks, the Samsung Instinct, and a BlackBerry "WorldPhone" on Verizon (pre-Tour series).

    I don't remember whole timeline, there were many...
    Here's my first one - Motorola Profile... I remember bringing it to school - there were like 2-3 other people in whole school who had cellphones, most still had beepers/pagers... Once someone tried to rob me after the school after seeing me in school with this phone - it didn't go well for that person, but I stopped carrying it to school after that, to not provoke the others ;-)

    And here's my all-time favorite phone... I remember using it to read "WAP"-accessible Yahoo news (and other sites) using a free "WAP" gateway access from T-Mobile back when there were no smartphones or proper mobile browsers or "data plans" ;-) Ericsson was an awesome company back then, too bad Sony killed it...

    Mine goes:
    - Nokia 6061
    - Motorola Razr V3t
    - BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip
    - HTC HD7

    - Nokia 810

    Started with a Cingular Go Phone and have been with T-mobile ever since. Feels nice to go full circle and be back with Nokia with my 6061 being my loudest phone imo :)

    That was my first phone also! But we never took it to school (I got it when I turned 16 in 2000, it mostly stayed in the car). No one where I lived EVER had beepers...maybe 1 kid that I remember... But our area completely skipped that fad, really was pointless. Most kids ended up with a cell phone by 2001 to 2002, but no one ever used them as the minutes were pretty tight. Everyone knew that if they were calling your cell, it had to be pretty important and kept under 50 seconds, haha

    Do you remember your plan? We had a family plan, with 100 minutes a month to share. I think you could call 1 number without using minutes, so that was tied to the house number.

    The early model numbers escape me but here it goes:
    Motorola Flip phone on Ameritech
    Motorola bar phone on Sprint
    Nokia bar phone on CBW
    Nokia slider on CBW
    Hitachi G1000 on Sprint
    Samsung flip phone on sprint (G1000 was huge)
    HTC Mogul on Sprint
    Samsung Moment on Sprint
    Blackberry on VZW
    Blackberry Bold on VZW
    HTC EVO on Sprint
    HTC Arrive on Sprint
    HTC Titan on AT&T
    Nokia Lumia 900 on AT&T
    Nokia Lumia 920 on AT&T

    I think that covers it.

    Nah, don't remember the plan... Was long time ago - in 1997 or so. It was expensive, though, so I never used it for "long chats" with female "friends", only for emergency calls, or for notifying my friends/relatives about my location.
    I also remember one day when I was just playing with it on subway train one dude came to me and asked to hold teh phone... I gave it to him, he looked at it from all sides, asked few questions about costs and its features, then gave it back to me... Never had it happen with any other phones, not even my iPhones or my current Lumia 920, and I doubt it'll ever happen again, at least until someone will come up with a truly revolutionary model (something with a holographic projector instead of regular display or something like this).

    I had a gap in 2000 when I didn't own a phone. I can't remember the exact name of my 2004 motorola flip phone, this was before the RAZER came out. I used to live and die by blackberry. I had blackberry for about 4 years. My last 3 phones have been windows phone. I will most likely buy a iphone as my next device because my needs have changed. (I need access to my work cameras and only on iphone, also some work app are only available for iOS), and of course app sharing. Still love my windows phone. I may even sport both phones ;)

    I think a picture timeline will takedown this thread because I have gone through a lot of phone over the last 15 years or so. So here we go...

    Nokia 7110 - Philips Twist - Nokia 3310 - Nokia 3210 - Samsung N105 - Alcatel OT512 - Nokia 8250 - Nokia 6510 - Nokia 8855 - Nokia 2100 - Nokia 2600 - Motorola A380 - Nokia 6101 - Nokia 3120 - Motorola L7 - Nokia E50 - Nokia E65 - Nokia 5300 - Nokia E61i - Nokia E63 - Nokia E71 - Motorola V3i - Nokia 5130 - Nokia N97 mini - Nokia Asha 309 - Nokia Lumia 620

    Yep, I'm serious I've used all of them. The longest that I've ever hold on to was the Nokia E71 and N97 mini both for 2 years. The shortest was the Nokia 6101 for 2 weeks as it was stolen. Currently I have the old, rugged Nokia N97 mini and of course my brand new Windows Phone powered Nokia Lumia 620 =D

    I'm currently waiting for a HTC 8X (Part 2), a Sony-better-get-off-their-asses before I get another phone at the end of this year for Windows Phone 8.5, Lenovo WP8.5, or Microsoft Surface phone..

    WOw, some classics.... My first phone was a Moto StarTac (led display), then I moved to assorted Moto phones over the years, v60, v60i, v710....then I jumped into the HTC Apache as my first smart phone...but, I always carried around Microsoft PDA (PocketPC/Windows Mobile) and with my v60(I) and v710, I had adapters where I could use the phone for internet access (internet sharing)...

    As I always had a PDA and phone, the Apache was the model that made me switch from both to a single device... and the rest is history...see below...
