Motorola Talkabout, the blue version... I think I was about 15 then and it was the first affordable mobile phone, hence the 100 meter long line on the first selling day, where I waited with my grandmother for 1,5 hours to get it :) I was so jealous of my friend who got the black version which looked soooo much cooler :p

The Nokia 282 is the latest example of style from the company that first introduced fashion to the world of cellular phones. And, since good looks are only half the solution, the Nokia 282 also includes all the features and performance that people have come to expect from a Nokia phone.

This lightweight folding phone weighs only 130 g and comes in a range of sophisticated colours, including Brushed Pewter, Ruby Red, Velvet Indigo and Satin Silver. With a standard battery you'll be able to talk for up to 100 minutes, or leave your phone on standby for up to 24 hours. You can also select from 12 ringing tune, and where carrier supported, you can even assign a special ringing tune to any number which will allow you to easily recognize a VIP caller.

The Nokia 282 has plenty of shortcuts to save you time, including one-touch access to your phone book and voicemail, and even one-touch dialing. And, with the profiles key, it is easy to change your ring settings to fit your environment. When you're in a meeting, choose the discrete vibrating alert, or if you're someplace noisy, switch to loud.

Some motorola thing about 1997-98 I think. Can't remember what model but it looked close to this. From what I remember it held 10 text messages at a time and had a phonebook but that was about it.

My father had a Startac around very early 2000s (I don't remember ever using it). Was the Startac a good phone?
