- I thought it'd be interesting to see how everyone first started off when they got into the cell phone industry. I'm sure most of us started out small with a phone that had the basic, texting and calling, while others went straight for the Palm Treo's, BlackJacks, etc.
Here's how it went down for me:
Year 2000: My first ever cell phone, was in middle school and I thought I was hot stuff with a tracfone LOL.
Year 2002: My second cell phone, basically when I started my freshmen year of high school
Year 2005: I believe in senior year (already having a horrible young memory) is when I received my enV. Was my favorite phone up until now
Year 2008: Just last summer I purchased my first ever BlackBerry, and have never liked a phone better.
Possibly upgrading to the BlackBerry Storm very soon!

- ...cell phone was in '97 and it was huge. The company I worked for had "bag" phones that needed to be plugged into the trucks.
After that I had a Nokia (dont remember the model)
Then I got my frist "flip phone" what a treat that was.
years go by...
and I get a phone with a COLOR screen.
Then I kept getting new phones that were upgrades along the way.
I my first BB was when the Pearl came out, and have been hooked on BB ever since.
Then when I could I got a Curve, and truly fell in love with BB,
Now I have a Storm and I am married to BB for life.01-16-09 10:16 AM
- That Moto V-170 TracFone was actually my third TracFone (and third cell phone overall). It's the one I had until late last year when I got the Curve. I never did take to cell phones, usually left 'em turned off unless I had an emergency and needed to call out. I still don't do much yakking or texting, but the e-mail and web browser (and a game or two) have started to make a dent in my slack time.
I think this was the first one:
Here was the second:
And of course the last one before the Curve:01-16-09 10:28 AM
