What was the first ever mobile/cell phone that you owned? Did you like the phone or did you dislike it? Was this phone given to you as a gift or did you save up for the phone yourself? Also why did you get rid of your first phone was it broken or did you just like to buy a new one?

hey sion.. i got my first phone from my mom 6 years back. it was a samsung made one. i dont remeber hte model number. it was just a normal phone with not much features. but i loved the blue light the phone had. it was really awesome. i changed the phone because it had a lot of scratches in it. i got another nokia phone (the torch one). i never liked the phone because it dint have any special features. now i'm using a nokia 6300. it is good. lot of features. but now i realised that nokia torch ( i think its 1100) was the best. i dropped it so many times on the floor (accidentally), but still i dint find any complaints. the more the features in the phone, the easier it gets spoiled. :)

Hi, sion316 My first cellular phone was a maroon/burgundy Nokia 6150. I am afraid I did not buy it with my own money. I bugged my parents to buy me a cell phone because I was then about to go on vacation and I was afraid to go without a phone because I might get lost in the big city. I loved it so much I had difficulty in letting it go when it got old. Have a nice day!

I had a big clunky cellular one telephone about ten years ago. It was cool to have a phone but it was one that I had to buy airtime and that was a pain. I like the phone that I have now. It is small and maneagable and does not give me any issues.

My first cell was a Tracphone. I was like 16 years old and I had to save up for it myself. I loved it, I think I had it for about a year. I was using it as a prepaid and I was on the cell a lot so at that time it got to expensive to keep it going. So I ended up getting involved in contract for cell phones. I think in the end I saved money. But now I am online more than I am on my phone. I have been thinking about getting a prepaid again and canceling my contract, but then again my cell has a lot of features that I am not sure I want to just give up. So my first phone was a Tracphone. I think if someone is just starting out with a phone than it is a great company to start out with. Grat discussion and good luck with it sion316, happy mylotting as well.
