    wah...many of us started with Ericsson EA 628 !!

    if i remember correctly, it is one of the first GSM hp that is no more look like those huge "water bottle" phone

    costed my dad $600+ last time

    but it is spoil so easily...later switch to M1 CDMA, using the Motorola CDMA hp that looks like StarTac X but even slimmer!

    after i moved into hostel, finally i got my own phone...it was a Nokia 6150

    then later CDMA died....so M1 gave me 2 x Nokia 8210 FREE!! (y free? long story...)

    the button and screen for 8210 is too small for my dad, so these two 8210...one become mine and then other become my gf's...

    in exchange i got 2 x 3310 for my dad and brother


    now the 8210 more than 1 year old....my starhub contract is over soon....but i like this phone...small and light.

    i dunno which phone to upgrade to, i dun need fancy features...can make calls can already....but if i dun upgrade...it will be a waste cos the contract going to end soon....

    anyone want to upgrade phone but dun want to get the line?? PM me!!

    We are HDD of PC & FT are MB add to storage;
    so PC never hangs with enormous storage capacity - LKY

    hmm...i dun think i can list out all the models that i have used...each model used no more than 3 months, then upgrade liao.

    Started using hp in the year 1994... i think my first hp is MOTOROLA 5200.

    Wasted a lot of $$$ sia...if i never upgrade so many hps..i think i will be richer than now.

    Phillips Genie (my mum's, actually.)
    Nokia 3310
    Nokia 8210 (because my ex had it... then the LCD went crazy. But I still love this phone, if not the person.)
    Nokia 6210 (this is totally not me. So bulky. Bleh.)
    Sony Ericsson T100 (like it because of the size.. and the orange lights. But after being a Nokia fan, I'm finding it hard to find the space button.)

    If only they still made new Nokia 8210... *sigh*

    That's still my favourite phone.

    And I've been eyeing the Nokia 6510 for a long time.. But my mum doesn't want to get me one.. *sigh*

    Hey man, the micro tac 5200 was also my first HP! Bought the wrong one actually, coz found out later (when singtel started SMS) that it doesn't support SMS (7200 supports)...can receive but can't send.

    But no choice, coz that HP was a gift from my mum actually . Coz my mum actually `bet' with me that i couldn't pass my Sec2 exams - was pretty `wild' when i was younger. So proved her wrong....went on to Sec3 with a HP.
