Do you still remember your mobile phone history?




While browsing old Nokia phones, we can’t but think about the mobile phones we’ve had in the past. That said, we decided to take a walk down memory lane and list down our mobile history.

• Nokia 3310 (2000) – broke down
• Nokia 8250 (2000) – stolen
• Nokia 2100 (2003) – passed down
• Sony Ericsson T230 (2003) – passed down
• Nokia 3650 (2003) – swapped
• Nokia 6610i (2004) – sold
• Nokia 6230i (2005) – passed down
• Nokia 5310 (2007) – passed down
• Nokia E51 (2007) – passed down
• Nokia 5800 (2008) – sold
• Samsung M140 (2008) – passed down
• Motorola RAZR Maxx V6 Ferrari Edition (2009) – broke down
• Samsung GT-E1080F (2010) – passed down
• BlackBerry Curve 9300 (2011) – passed down
• LG Optimus L3 (2012) – sold
• iPhone 4S (2012) – passed down
• HTC One X (2012) – stolen
• BlackBerry Torch 9860 (2013) – passed down
• Sony Xperia Z1 (2013) – passed down
• BlackBerry Z10 (2013) – passed down
• Cherry Mobile P1 (2014) – lost it
• Xiaomi Mi3 (2014) – passed down
• iPhone 5S (2015) – current phone
• ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser (2015) – passed down
• Vivo V3 Max (2016) – temporary work phone, returned
• Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime (2017) – current phone

Based on my phone history, Nokia phones served me well in the first decade of 2000, then eventually moved to smartphones. I wonder if I’ll own a Nokia again in the near future. I also noticed that most of my phones were passed down, while others were sold or stolen.

How about you? Do you still remember your mobile phone history? Feel free to share in the comments below.

    Nice. Very diverse. I’m both surprised and impressed by your phone history. I was expecting the more expensive and ‘shinier’ phones to populate the list but lo and behold…

    1995- analog phone (forgot the brand) under PILTEL
    (PLDT) first cellular mobile phone service in the country in 1991. It operated under the MOBILINE using analog technology.
    1994-1998 – Nokia 2110. This was one really neat phone for it’s time – caller ID, ring tones, and SMS
    ISLACOM introduced the first digital mobile communication service in the Philippines using GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) world standard digital technology in 1994.
    theyre all useful, big and heavy has loud ringtone and earpiece and longer charging also faster low batt.
