    Here goes nothing. First, I had some Kyrocera device (it was marketed on Virgin Mobile as the Party Animal..don't ask). After that, I had a TDMA Nokia device on AT&T, which was superceded by a Nokia 3595. After that, I got a V505 on AT&T, which was right before the AT&TWS/Cingular merger. Once the merger went over, my service went to garbage. The people at Cingular said that if I moved over from Cingular Blue, I'd get better service (what a joke). That's when I got the V551, which didn't last long when I broke the contract with Cingular and went to T-Mobile. Over at T-Mobile is where I had my first experience with a "smartphone" and grew my hatred for Windows Mobile. I got an HP iPAQ h6315. I believe that I exchanged that device 14 times for various issues before I gave up on it. I went back to my V551 (which was unlocked) until I got my Treo 650. After about a year, my Treo started to give me issues, so I tried to file a claim with Asurion for another Treo (note: T-Mobile doesn't sell the Treo 650). They tried to palm (no pun intended) off a HTC Wing, which I declined. After about 6 hours of phone tag, I gave up and bought a Treo 680. A few months later, I switched to Verizon and got the Treo 700p. What a nightmare. After exchanging my 700p about four times for screen issues, I got a Treo 755p, which I thought would be better. Six months later, it too starts having the same screen issues. I tried to get them to exchange it for another device, but they refused. That's when I added another line and got a BB Curve

    My first phone was a prepaid nokia that was kind of big, but not too big. Then I had a nokia that was the size of my hand, and extremely light. Then I had an LG, a LG with a qwerty Keyboard, the motorola v220. After that I had the Samsung A707, then the Samsung Blackjack, and finally my precious curve .

    I used to have one similar to the one below but it was black (that's not me in the pic, btw). You could actually hurt someone with that thing so in a way, it was also a weapon. lol

    First "mobile" was a radio or maybe it worked via satellite used in Northern Manitoba in the 70's. I needed to climb a tree to put up the antenna and it worked on a car battery. Then a walkie talkie sized OKI in '89 and progressively smaller to the 8130. My have times changed!

    ...with an old Ericsson (before the merger w/ Sony) flip phone back in '96. Used that until the SE T68i -awesome phone and my first ever bluetooth device-. Used that until I got the Nokia 6620 - the first round of AT&T mobile tv...what garbage!-. Used THAT until I got the palm Treo 600 - complete crap...kept shutting down-. Upgraded to the palm Treo 680 - awesome device and my first smartphone-. Dropped the 680 for the 1st gen iPhone - less than average phone, great iPod/browser-. Dropped the iPhone for my current AT&T 8310 Curve - I'm in <3 -.

    It's been a long, strange trip...Looking forward to the Javelin!

    First phone was a Motorola flip in high school...that thing was bigger than the house phone and the battery weighed about 5 lbs.

    The rest weren't very memorable...except the craptastic Razr that I finally ditched a few weeks ago for my first BB...Sunset Curve...love it!
