I've had several of those but only after they had been replaced with something more modern.  That trend continues to this day.   :laugh:

I had those first two Motorola phones long after most people had put them on the scrap heap.   :laugh:  But we had the Sony Ericsson T68I  when it was state of the art but only because Mrs Clive was given it by her employers.   8-)  The only reason we scrapped it was because it usually didn't work when we were abroad.

I started with a Philips C12, then moved to a flipper, but I can't remember what that was now.  I then had one of the original Sony (pre-Ericsson) phones, a J something or other, which had lovely polyphonic ringtones.  ;D  Next came a run of Nokias, 6310i, 6230, and an N82.  I then had a few SEs, the K750i, K800i, K810i, before moving onto BlackBerry, of which I had the Storm 1 (which famously met with a wall!) and Storm 2, which then led to the iPhone 3GS, and, currently, the 4S.  I may have missed one or two along the way.  :laugh:

You've had more phones than I've had hot dinners!   :laugh:  My latest appears to be a newer version of your second.   :)x

I wish I could remember the name of the flipper, though.  That's really bugging me!  :bawl:

I remember!  It was an NEC.  I'll be able to go to sleep now. ;D

I also missed another one - I had an HTC HD2 between the last BlackBerry and the first iPhone.  Gorgeous phone, with the biggest screen available at the time.  Only downside was the old Windows OS.
