What was your first smartphone?

For me it was a Samsung Galaxy W bought in early 2012. Prior to that I had a Nokia 5230, of which I'm not sure whether it counts as real smartphone.

The LG Optimus S. It was my first Android phone I thought it was the coolest thing. It introduced me to the Android OS and got me playing and loving angry birds. The LG Optimus S was a reliable phone and performed fairly well. I dropped the LG Optimus S many times and it survived . Last year in 2012 I sold it and upgraded to the HTC EVO 4G LTE which is more powerful and has a bigger screen.

Prior to smartphones, I connected this to WAP over IRDA:

I had the GSM enabled one of these:

Then I got this:

And then after a while, this:

Then sold my soul for this:

Lumia 520 since about a month

Couldn't justify owning one before, but for that price, I had to cave in

I had a Kyrocera Hydro for 3 days a year of more ago. Couldn't stand it.

 

I guess I could say I still haven't had my first one still!

Well I had a Motorola that looked like an n-gage, wish I knew what model it was, it was my favorite phone, which I had in 2003-2004, then moved on to the Razr.

 

If that doesn't count, then I had a Samsung Blackjack in 2007, and had that for about a year and used it during my 15 month deployment and moved onto the iPhone 3GS when I got back into the country.

At the time Symbian was considered a smartphone platform, sooooooooooo:

Nokia 6600, got it back in 2007. What's crazy is that only now while googling it I found out it originally came out in 2003.

 

First proper smartphone is a Samsung Galaxy S Plus which I got in April last year.

Hello,

I am not sure if it counts as a "smartphone," but I had a Motorola StarTAC with an adapter for a Franklin REX 5000 PCMCIA-card PDA.  The device had to be plugged into a PC though, to get any meaningful amount of data out of it.  This would have been in the mid-1990s.

 

I also had a Palm Vx with a OmniSky Minstrel V cellular cradle.  This wasn't a smart phone, per se, but it allowed me to browse the web via PQA applets like AvantGo at a blazing 19.2Kbps over AT&T's CDPD network.  I had this device through the mid-to-late 1990s.

 

Probably the first smartphone I owned that qualified for the name was the Motorola MPx200, which ran Windows Mobile for Smartphones.  This would have been 2002-2003

 

Regards,

This was my first, except in the virgin mobile flavor, the optimus v. Which looks exactly the same as this aside from the sprint logo. Was decent enough nearly 3 years ago. Except for the camera, that part of it sucked.

This thing was such a piece of junk.  I had it on Sprint without a data plan (which made it kind of pointless), but it ran Windows Mobile which was bad bad bad.  I remember flashing an Android ROM onto it, which ran better, but it was back when Android really sucked.

 

Upgrading from that to an iPhone 4S was such a relief.

My first smartphone was a Blackberry Storm. Briefly. I owned it for a few hours. Never again.
