    That's what WPC was like and with no "first" comments either. We've come a long long way!

    Back when WPCentral was still called WMExperts. And Phil was still writing here.

    Aw yiss.

    I kind of wish I was born a few years earlier, so I could at least have caught up on WM, Symbian ("S60!", I hear hardcore fans say.), and BlackBerry.

    Do I sound old?

    I have a Symbian phone. To be exact, a Nokia C5-00 running S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 :P

    (Also, I'm just someone who happens to hang around the internet.)

    I went back and listened to some of the original podcasts (circa 2008), I was thrown by some weirdo that sounded like Daniel Rubino saying he was someone else...haha

    They went by screen names at the time and Daniel was "Malatesta".

    I had a couple Symbian devices back in the day. I've never even played with a Windows Mobile device, though. The only thing I know about Windows Mobile is the Samsung Jack is a Windows Mobile device. Ozzy Osbourne did a commercial for the Samsung Jack, and my mother's neighbour still uses a Samsung Jack.

    I first joined this site in December 2009 but didn't really start frequenting it until 2010. Every now and then I did stumble on an article from back then though.

    Similar, I started to browse the site in 2010 when Windows Phone was releasing, I just lurked for a year though and realized this one place had the answer to all my questions, finally joined July 2011.

    That was my first smartphone, the Samsung Blackjack II. I guess depending on where you lived the Blackjack II was either the same thing as the Jack or a generation ahead, haha. Samsungs 616 and 636 are both nicknamed Jack (616 was Canada only).

    I sold that phone for $50 to help buy my Samsung Focus for $100 on contract!

    Geez.... honest, 2009 was not THAT long ago!!

    Man, it is like we found the diary from the Titanic, or something....


    I was still in Feature Phone world. Think I hit the Samsung Blackjack earlier in 2008, and it was so horrid a phone I ran back to simple cell phones. Then by 2009-ish, I used a hand-me-down BlackBerry Curve from my wife, and then on to the Palm Pre Plus.

    I did not find WPC until 2010-ish. Joined the next year when I decided WP was too much fun.

    Wow. Okay, 2009 was a little longer ago then I thought.

    Nope. Don't remember this article.

    Pretty much the same as everyone else one here. 2009, I was much of a lurker. I was more on XDA as Windows Mobile was much widely supported by developers there and I used to do ROMs and custom themes for my PDAs and share with the community. In 2010, when WP became a reality after that halt between WM6.1 and WM6.5, is when I started lurking more as we had those funny podcasts from Malatesta ;)
