    Some random Nokia phone. Weird to think a lot of people have their first phone as a smartphone nowadays.

    There was a time before flip phones m8, but I'll cut you a break as it just shows your age :P

    I actually had those crappy phones with a brick form factor and proprietary OS until 2014 or so.

    First phone? No idea. If it wasn't one of those indestructible nokias, it was close to it.

    First smart phone was a crappy b tier samsung (not galaxy). After that I got a Nexus 5x, and now I've got a Pixel 2.

    I've probably had 10 phones or so by this point.

    EDIT: Oh, I see you added the "nokia" option

    Mine was a chunky Sprint flip phone.
    Then it got replaced with an LG Rumor. Now I'm stuck with an iphone 4. ;-;

    Oh man I remember seeing commercials for this thing - but I never actually knew anyone who had one.

    I hope service costs were low as you could only call like 4 people. Wait, how do you enter phone numbers on this thing anyway? Like - how did you get your mom's contact in the first place - is it programmed in the store?

    Yup programmed from the start so couldn't save any "non-existent" friend's numbers, not like everyone had phones back then like how it is now, you'd see a few people with Blackberrys once in a while, but it wasn't common yet.

    Wasn't there something like that in a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book?

    Anyways, my first phone was a cheap Android Tracfone.

    Been a long time since I've read the books so can't recall, but wouldn't doubt it.
