The first cell I saw was this Nokia handset slightly older than the one in the OP. Had a fairly large dot matrix display and an extendible antenna.

My first phone? The Razr v3. :p Almost six years of feature phones and a year of a smartphone.

Am I the only one old enough to have had one of these back in 1992?

Nope you're not. Well I didn't own one but I used them back then. But it was 1992 when I got that one I posted, somewhere around there.

I had that flip phone as well. I don't think I got it until '93 or '94. I was thrilled that I could finally carry the phone with me.

I remember using velcro to hold the bag phones to my center console, so they wouldn't slide around.

I still laugh when people talk about the weight of the new phones, considering what we had 20 years ago.

I remember those. Had a code for it that enabled you to listen to the conversation of some random number that was connected to the closes tower (or something like that).
Good times.

I bought it because I used to play snake on 3315 and figured colour + snake = win.

No snake :( Decent phone though, but Nokia immediately brought the much nicer 6610 to market >.>
