    My Dad's first phone was a Black Nokia 918 in the mid 90's, supplied by the company he worked for.
    Remember the Extended Life batteries you could get for these phones that made them even bigger?

    Exactly like this one, but the black version:



    I loved the 3310, purely for Nokia Snake. To this day, there is no phone with a better version of
    that game! 3548 points! Beat that!

    My first phone for work was a Motorola with a handset , flexible cable and battery base of some sort. Can't for the life of me remember the model or anything much more about it.

    I had a Philips PR810 anti-hijack device. If you klapped someone with it they were history.

    Can't believe there's no mention of the Ericsson 337 / 388 there. For me that was a groundbreaker in terms of size...

    I got mugged while on my way home from varsity (had a 288). Then I got a 1018s which had a whole 3 lines of text!

    Another icon I'm surprised was not mentioned!I had the 6150i after the ericsson almost the same as a 6110 just 1 or two added features..


    Agree with MTN though the 3310 was a big hit in its day and relatively affordable.

    For me the Nokia Communicators were truly iconic. They always stood out as something special. Nothing else like it.

    5110 was a very solid phone. You could kick it around without it breaking, it was a very solid (and basic) phone.

    I had the 5110, then the 6110. Then the 6310, then the 6600.

    After than I got the LG KS360 - it was sort of OK... then after that it was back to my last Nokia, the 5230.

    At this point I'm still hee-ing and ha-ing over what to get next

    But I still miss my 5110.
