    Wow...guess I'm just an old maid here. I didn't get my first cell phone until I was 33. It was an audiovox. Don't remember which one. That was 9 years ago. I've only had 5 phones in all that time. The last 2 have been BB's. Also had a Motorola and a Samsung.

    I have to smile when I read some of these posts. The younger folks can not only tell you about their first phone, the seem to remember the very model number and sequencing that they got each phone! The rest of us seem to be more along the lines of "er, uhm, yeah...I got a phone of some sort, I remember it was big and heavy, back in 1990......." LOL! That's me, for sure.

    Yes I meant my storm2 is my first smartphone and I am now 30.

    My first cell phone was some Nokia (cant remember model) I got when I was 15. My mom use to yell at me for using up the minutes on it because it was expensive. It was only for "emergencies".

    Kids today have it good, both my 14 and 12 year olds have Blackberries.
    My first "phone" was actually a two way radio that had a phone number and a keypad on the front that you could dial a number with. It was terrible you couldn't talk and listen at the same time. But hey, we didn't have cell service in our small town 24 years ago. My first real cell was one of the 2 pound bricks, been supporting the industry every since.

    The first was a Sony phone (brick style) that I bought in 1998-Sept. I was 3mos shy of the big 3-0 then. Along with my Panasonic pager, which I got rid of later, were my first. You never forget your first HA-HA!!

    This is what I had as my first phone - Motorolla MR1

    It had a whopping 60 minute talk time and IIRC 11 hours standby. No texting either!

    That was 1995 when I joined Orange UK on contract (no PAYG then). I've been with Orange ever since with the same number and just ammended my contract as and when better deals have become available etc.

    I've since had Nokia phones, I went through the Sony Ericsson P800, P900, P910i and P990i before getting my first Blackberry, the 8300 and I've had the 9000 and now have the 9700.
    That was my 1st phone 2, i remember you had to call orange for a centre number to be able to text, and i had nobody to text then my mate got 1 and we sent like 1 text a week haha

    My first phone was a Mitsubishi Trium Astral (see pic below). My husband bought it for me on pay as you go in 1999 when I was 27. I had to travel around London a lot on my own and my husband was worried about emergencies. It was (comparatively) huge with an extendable aerial that kept getting caught on things, but I thought it was the coolest thing out there. Two years later, it was stolen in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

    Since then I have lost count of the number of phones I've had, but they've included a Nokia 3310, 2 Motorolas (both had terrible battery life) 1 Sony Ericsson and 2 Samsungs. My first smartphone was a Nokia 5800. I'm sticking with BB now though.

    Actually my list would read like this.

    Siemens sl42
    Iphone 3gs
    BlackBerry Bold 9780

    Can't remember the model of the Sagem but it was my very first phone and I still have it. Not in use but it fired up the other day like all the other phones. So far the best phone I had was the P900. Great alrounder
