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.
