    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!

    6310i, did anyone ever send away for that little custom tab on the bottom that Nokia gave away for joining Club Nokia. My first and probably only ever piece of mail from Finland.

    Not to mention, Snake was a bomb.

    My dad had the MicroTac, with both the standard & extended battery along with a dual charger and a 2nd 'quick' charger.

    Pretty insane when I think I've had the same mobile number for 15 years now, attached to 7 different phones and have had 5 different landline numbers serviced by just 1.

    I've owned a 3310 myself, it was a nice phone.

    I still have my Nokia 6110 and my Nokia 1110i. I have dumped a few phones but just cannot bin these two.

    My dad had the Phillips Diga when I was in primary school. We were all amazed at this piece of tech!

    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!

    Nokia 5110i is more iconic than 6110i. Reason - cheaper, more affordable and it has better network monitor. MTN contractors still use 5110i for picking up tower CellID when installing repaters.

    I had a SE K750i a few years back. The battery on that phone lasted me almost a week and its features were amazing for the time! Best phone I ever owned.
    Screw this...
