    Great phone - built like a tank! If all you need to do is calls and sms, this baby is still a viable option 20yrs later!

    No it's not, don't be ridiculous.

    Aside from the shit battery and antenna, the build quality isn't that great either.

    ...In your opinion.
    ...but here's some facts -
    • you can throw these down a flight of concrete steps and it not even crack... good luck doing that with any current phone and not have at least a cracked screen.
    • all current smart phones have worse battery life than every pre-smart phone (why I went back to using my old Nokia E6 - it only needs charging twice a month, and it's on 24/7)
    • it won't slow down to the point that it's pretty much useless through notifications and OS bloat, requiring an eventual upgrade to a newer handset
    I stand by my statement - if all you need is a device to make and receive phone calls and send and receive text messages, old devices like the Nokia are a better option than any current smart phone.

    First thing I got was a Bosch GSM-com 608 in blue, if I can trust my memories. I hated it, because the display was not fully made up of pixels, but had only "rows" with pixels. Therefor snake and other games could not be played on it :(

    I loved thatphone- honestly would still be using it if the charger wasn't making noises resembling a time bomb (also if Symbian S60 was still supported but I'm determined to bring it back)
    Phones with physical keyboards need to come back, I miss texting with gloves on!!

    My first "smart" phone was a Palm Trio 650. It had internet, emailing, keyboard, etc.. Used to day trade stocks with that phone back in 2005.

    My first cell phone was a Nokia 2170. I remember playing snake a lot on it. It also had a football/soccer game and some falling blocks game.

    I didn't use ir much and had to turn it off during school hours.

    The weight was 235 g, the size 140 x 55 x 33 mm. The phone book (Contacts) stored up to 99 names and numbers .

    It had 10 ring tunes by default and had only 3 colors.

    Of course, it included Snake and two other games.

    That one together with my dads cell phone that was the same model, was stolen ages ago.

    Motorola v325i. For its time, it wasn't super advanced but did come with things that were kinda big features for 2006. Camera and an outward screen to show if you missed calls/ texts/ or voicemail. I really liked it. When it rang, that white strip between the black rubber and silver would light up neon blue. It looked awesome. No one else i knew had this one.
