Love that keyboard.

My mom had one of those. She still misses the ringtone she had back then.

If the network is regular GSM you can flash the Xperia's to European firmware without data loss, warranty loss or any issues ;) but the One X is really good and still faster than the S.

I wish I could find an image of it. I probably still have it around here somewhere if I didn't throw it away.

It was a Verizon Wireless LG flip phone back in 2005. I can't find the model number anywhere. Wish I could find a picture but I'm all Google-foo'd out. I can't remember if the phone had a camer but I don't think it did...maybe. I know it didn't have a screen on the front for time/text messages.

When searching for the model number I found some old Verizon bills in my email. $55/month for a very basic 450min and I think 200txt plan. Glad to know that my bill is substantially less, and my plan substantially better with StraightTalk today.

Kids these days... I went through all of college and graduated without owning a cell phone. Now it is like the majority of middle schoolers have them.

Yeah, well a long time ago you basically had to be rich, well have a damn good job just to be able to buy one, let alone pay for time.
Nowadays a young kid can go to pretty much any store and buy a pretty good cellphone on what they'd earn a night babysitting or some other odd job, and even buy time with their allowances, etc. etc.

Ericsson T10 on the one2one network in the UK, I was one of the last in my circle of friends to get a mobile in around 1999-2000, before that I had a pager and used payphones!

Oh, the horror!
