    So, guys, I was wondering what mobile phones do you own and owned for the past years... :)
    Here's my list: (I'll use spoilers to keep this post smaller)

    1. Nokia 3410
    [​IMG]
    My first phone. I got this phone six years ago as a present from my parents. I still have it! :)
    Note:
    The Nokia 3410 is the first phone from Nokia with Java support.
    Specifications.

    2. Sony Ericsson T610
    [​IMG]
    My second phone. Another present from my parents for good results in school five years ago! :P
    Specifications.

    3 & 4. Nokia 1100 and Nokia 1101
    The first picture is Nokia 1100 and the second is Nokia 1101.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    My third and fourth phones. There's a funny story about these...
    I bought the Nokia 1100, I went home and right next to my house, on the road I found the Nokia 1101 a bit scratched, but fully functional. Was I lucky or unlucky? I let you decide. :rofl2:
    Specifications (Nokia 1100)
    Specifications (Nokia 1101)

    5. Nokia 6125
    [​IMG]
    My fifth phone. Yet, another great present from my parents, but this time I got it for my 15th birthday! :toot: I had and still have good memories with it...
    Want to know a secret? After only two days, YES, two days, my lovely phone stopped working! :cry: :lol: (It slipped from my pocket and the little display broke, and the phone didn't want to start anymore...
    I sent it back and I clearly said that I don't care that I'll lose my warranty, just please repair it...
    Well, they said OK. I waited a month and they sent it back with a letter, which said, that they can't repair it... :glare: :glare:
    Here comes the annoying part...
    1. They said, that they can repair it, 100%, and they didn't...
    2. I lost my warranty (self explanatory :rofl2: )
    3. They even charged me with 25$ because they "tried to repair it" :angry2:

    I was so angry... but the other they I went to a GSM shop and I asked, that it really can't be fixed? :unsure:
    They said that it can, with only 10$. And they said that only the smaller screen needs to replaced and that's all...I was like :wtf: :blink:
    How lucky could I be no...? :rofl2:
    Specifications.

    6. Motorola RAZR V3i
    [​IMG]
    My sixth phone. Another funny story...
    Remember my Nokia 6125 story? Here's the thing:
    On the day when I received the news, that the phone can't be repaired and went to the GSM shop, but right after I came out, near my house I saw something shiny in the grass... You guessed, it was the Motorola... :lol:
    I think that day was my unlucky-luckiest or unluckiest-lucky day... :wacko: :blink: :wtf: :rofl2:
    Specifications.

    7. Nokia AEON F868 Concept Replica (aka Chinese model TOSHIBA) :creep:
    [​IMG]
    My seventh phone. I saw this thing on the internet and I was very curious about it... I buyed it, but didn't like it so I selled it after a couple of months.
    Note: It comes with a stylus.
    Note 2: In the Audio Player, you can shake the phone to jump to next track.
    Specifications.

    8. Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000
    [​IMG]
    My eighth phone. I got this phone in January 2011 and I love it!!! :wub:
    I saw it on its release day, I saw and read many good reviews on it and actually tested it myself and I said: "I have to get this phone!" So I started working and after a couple of months I managed to raise enough money to buy it! :) (I have the black/8GB model)
    This is the phone I currently use and I think that it will be for a long(er) time that my Nokia 6125! :rofl2:
    Note:
    Also known as Samsung I9008 Galaxy S for Chinese market!
    Specifications.


    So... I hope you enjoyed my little phone experience history! Please reply with something awesome and list your own list of phones if you want... :)

      [​IMG]
    Yep - I'm a Nokia fan-boy... I'm currently using the 5800 (I actually won that on a Pepsi Promotion in 2009)...

    Although I must admit I HAVE been looking @ Android phones... in particular the 'HTC Desire HD' and the 'Motorola Milestone 2'..
    but mainly because I'm getting a little fed up with how Nokia is becoming more like Apple (with it's OVI 'stuff') & how their 'free' apps are 'Ad supported' (which is a pain when you're on PAYG....)

    EDIT: Hmm might stick with Nokia - the N8 looks tempting as well

    My first phone was this:
    [​IMG]
    I got it 3 or 4 years ago and lost it in 3 months after I got it. I was so pissed...

    My second phone was this:
    [​IMG]
    I had one in blue. It broke in 4 months after I got it by falling into the pool... The next day I replaced the phone because it was still under warranty and guess what the day after that I lose this phone. I lost it by opening the car door and it dropped and I didn't even notice it.

    My 3rd phone was this: [​IMG]
    A samsung phone that used to be one of my parents. I got it 3 months after I lost my other phone.
    4rd phone: [​IMG]
    I got this phone for free from my uncle because he didn't need it anymore. It was a good phone but then the battery started to suck and only lasted a day. The next day after I activated this phone my Samsung didn't turn on for some reason.

    5th phone: [​IMG]
    This phone was pretty good and was my first Android. I was slow though and when I overclocked it with SetCpu my phone had kernal panicks and random reboots. Decided to give back to Verizon.

    6th phone: [​IMG]
    Best phone I ever had. I love it.

    I won't bother with links/pics.

    I used to have a very old flip-phone, hand-me-down from my dad, but I can't remember anything about it other than it was so old that the muggers didn't want to take it.

    First phone I got for myself was a Motorola RAZR V3i m (the red musical edition, and ultimately the reason I hate iTunes).

    Second was HTC Dream/T-Mobile G1. I used it to bits, especially Google Maps for when I went travelling. Ended up wanting to replace it because it started feeling somewhat slow.

    Now I have a HTC Desire HD, which is also getting heavy usage. It's become almost as good as having a tablet laptop by my side for when I need to do some heavy research away from home, and the fact taht it plays games better than the G1 makes it much more fun to use.

    I got my first phone when I was sixteen and I'm twenty now and in that time, I've had only two phones. Both were Sony Ericsson, I can't remember the model of my first one but I'm currently using a W395. It's ok, I don't really need it for anything other than the phone functions. If I had to get a new one now than I'd probably go fot the HTC Desire just for how flashy it looks.

    I have owned...
    1. A Motorola V500
    [​IMG]
    I got this when I was 13 and by the time I was 14/15 I'd killed its call speaker. I absolutely mutilated this thing...

    2. A Sony Ericsson K800i
    [​IMG]
    The replacement and jesus it was a huge improvement. It had an absolutely great camera in it that I used all the time. It didn't even really die when I got a new one in 2009 (after having my K800i for 2 years) the joystick was starting to go a bit though and the camera button died. My dad uses it now.

    3. An LG GW520
    [​IMG]
    This is my current phone and quite frankly its a disappointment. It tries to be a good, cheap touch screen phone (hard to find in '09) but fails on a few fronts. The main problem is that its just too slow to do what it tries. The OS will often freeze up or glitch out... It works pretty well though as a texting/calling/light mobile browsing conduit. The best thing is that QWERTY keyboard. I could never go back to tapping stuff out on a keypad after this. I need a full keyboard either virtual (on a good touchscreen) or hardware.

    Planning on replacing the GW520 with an Apple Peel 520 in March (if they've got a release of the new version for iPod 3Gs and the software isn't too buggy) so I've got a nice smartphone, albeit limited to 2G internet access. That's all I get in my town anyway...

    I don't have photos but currently in my possession is:

    - Samsung U600. My current phone. A huge pile of steaming shit. Constantly locks up, battery life is about fifteen seconds, memory card slot is damaged, the camera goes blurry all the time, the speakers are shot so it sounds like a whale being raped when it rings, and it's generally fucking useless. I plan to replace it when my finances are a little better.

    - Motorola Razr V3i. My personal favourite of all the phones I ever owned. Right now it's damaged but still kinda works. Battery is ruined thanks to a rather nasty thunderstorm though, so it never stays on long enough to do much.

    - Samsung T-100. A phone so old the box proudly preaches about the new and exciting technology of the colour screen. No camera, no MP3 ringtone capacity, scuffed beyond recognition but technically fine. I lost the charger but aside from that it's in perfect working order.

    What I really want more than anything else is a Panasonic P900IV, but they only work in Japan. At one point I contemplated buying one anyway, and finding some way of using the shell to house another phone's internals. But that plan got shot in the nuts right out the gate when A) I was unable to find any for sale on eBay, and B) I can't think of anyone that could do such technical stuff even if I found one anyway.
