Mine was an Alcatel OT Easy HF back in 1998. :p
After that, I had some Nokia phones.

My first Android 'smartphone' was a Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo.

Not sure how I missed this thread back when it started.

My dad had that model Alcatel around 1998.

My first cellphone was a Nokia 3310 in 2003.

Though I had used some analogue models as well, like the Nokia 232 and Ericsson 237.

I had the exact same NEC phone that I purchased second-hand at the end of 1997. I remember walking into a nightclub in that year thinking I was so cool to have a cellphone, but it was so massive it made the pocket of my jeans bulge out. I also remember hardly ever using it because at that stage there were so few people with cellphones, and the calls were so expensive, you hardly ever needed to use it.

Cannot remember exactly - looked like a brick with an antennae :) People wore cellphones on their hips in those days

This was the ultimate hip worn phone, it even came with the tiny clip on case.

If it still works properly, it might be worth something in the future when they become rarer and collectors items. I still also have a blackberry in mint condition and hoping it becomes a collectors item in future.

I think I still have two of them, batteries are pretty much fecked though.

I've also got an original Motorola Startac still in its box somewhere.

Ericsson T28 ca. 2000, nice little thing it was. Didn't keep it for very long, recall trading it in for a Nokia 3310 later that year
