You couldn't holster it due to its weight...

Alcatel HB100 from Vodac in 96.
Think it cost about R2000.
Dreadful thing.

My first cellphone was in grade 9. Jesus, what a day that was. Got it on a Cell C contract. Nokia 3320:



Snake ran slower than other Nokia's for some reason, so my friends could not believe my insane high score. :cool:

My favourite phone ever was the one after that though, the Nokia 3220:



The light effects on the sides when the phone received messages or calls were amazing. Unfortunately, it was one of the last Nokia phones that did not support internet connectivity in third-party apps. And the Mxit craze started less than a year after I got the device. The first time I could run Mxit was on the Motorola Razr V3x that followed the 3220.

I remember it only had 1 line on the screen.
You had to scroll to view a SMS.

Ay nice, that was my dad's first cellphone. I took his one with me on a few sports and band tours so I could call from anywhere. It was such a crap phone.

When he upgraded to the 3310 it was a revelation. But he didn't let that out of his sight.

My first phone trumped all of your phones if I am to be as humble. It was the Motorola Accompli A008. It had a web browser, GPRS, and a stylus! Yea the same thing on Samsung Note 10. I took it to school (grade 9) and I was declared a national treasure and voted most likely to become a legend. And when someone annoyed me on the line I had the satisfaction of snapping the lid shut on them with one finger like an immortal being.

Good times.

Siemens C10 I think. '97 - '98.

That phone was a tank. I left it on the roof of my car and drove off. It fell off and a truck dove over it. It was partially mangled but some insulation tape to hold the battery and cover in place and it still made and received calls (The screen was poked though).
