This was my very first cell phone. I thought this was the coolest thing on the planet back then in 1995. Boy, technology has changed.

Back when phones were actually used for making calls. :rofl:
I do miss the days of getting a couple weeks on a single battery charge.

Ha. The phone you posted Scorbing was my first (or something similar to it), then the one Astra.Xtreme posted was my second.
Coincidence. Thanks for the flashback.

Sony Ericsson T300. It was tiny AND had a color screen!!! Note that this was back when your parents didn't shove a smartphone in your hands at the age of 3. I bought this phone when I was 17 I think and paid for it and my own service on it.
