    Not a very good question. What are you really asking? First portable phone? First smart phone? My first phone was rotary. There weren't any portable phones (other than for businesses) when I was a child. Jebus... on the first page someone mentioned being a 1998 kid. As in... BORN in 1998? By the end of 1998, I was an E-5 in the Navy. I didn't have my own cell phone until like 2003. It was a Motorola Razr. Bought the first iPhone pretty much as soon as it was out.

    nokia ngage is the first phone i remember but i'm pretty sure it was actually my second or third phone, those old nokias were such pieces of shit the buttons would always wear out and have to be replaced until one day that didn't help anymore and you just needed a new phone.

    I'll just assume you mean mobile phones... I somehow remember exactly what I had and it was pretty shitty! It was called a Kyocera Blade

    Then I moved up to a KRZR then finally an iPhone 4 when I was 16 (iirc?). I remember getting the iPhone 4 launch day and driving around to different stores because the one we were first thru the door at had sold the 8 they had in stock to friends. Still have never set my foot in that store since!
