None of those... Especially not the apple phone. Never an apple phone.

7. I thought I was pretty cool.

David Howes said...

#3

I thought I was cool, too!

But, it didn't always work because the coverage, then, was pitiful.

kfitz said...

9... i was like 10

Guesser said...

I don't see a black rotary.

#14 - Motorola Razor. only could call text and I think write notes? no photo or video taking, black & green non-LED screen

I got this cell phone as my first cell phone, I think I was 15 or 16yo?

The iphone didn’t come out until I was 21yo in 2008.

I banged trees with big sticks.

DejaBlue said...

LOL Lonely Bastard

And I don't see a green Princess phone.

5 - A Sony Ericsson. I bought it because they were, at the time, the sponsor of a major tennis tournament that I followed. I then went to Nokia, before settling in on Apple for the last 6-7 phones I have had.

#12 in Mexico, fought off owning one in the states before that because I hate telephones.
Nowadays, my cell is on silent most of the time and in my original 310 area code, its nice to keep an old number from a different state, especially around elections.

notthisagain said...

princess phones and rotary phones have made a huge comeback. same with cassette tapes & vinyl. First it was the hipsters but now normal young ppl are into it

Brayson87 said...

Ah so many memories, I see several that I owned.

There she is! Number 7. With the sweet LED dot matrix display.

Brayson87 said...

I did enjoy flipping those clam shell ones open like Star Trek lol.

Herbert Arnold said...

bag phone, not pictured.

Ophelia said...

ooh I like this one - more clever way of Enty getting a feel of his reader demographics!

I was #12 & I had to make the school basketball team before I could get it

And @Brayson I really miss the satisfaction of flipping them shut

cece said...

9 or 10. But I loved my Blackberry the most! I loved when it would ping to let somebody know that this text was important!! My daughter and I still text ping! to each other even though it doesn't make the ping noise to let each other know when something dramatic has happened. We're silly like that.

Fisher Price, with a happy face and a string.

Ann said...

None of the above. I had a Motorola bag phone back in the golden oldie days when mobile phone plans were expensive.

Sara, Making It Work said...

It was attached to the wall.

Oh, you mean cell phone? #7 or similar.

akaElleLatham said...

Closest one is 12 but it's a Kyocera. I still have it. No charger though. I then bought 17 which is an LG Chocolate. Same color. Still have that one too. No charger.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

It always made me feel uncomfortable when people wouldn't take their finger out of the number hole during the backspin on a rotary phone. I don't know if I thought it would snap their finger off or what.

haha I think this is great way to found out demographic group of individual visitors, clever enty! My phone was #8, or something similar, it had sliding case, and it was Sony Ericsson or Sagem, I don't recall anymore. It was really long time ago.

Violet617 said...

12

mud said...

Brayson87 said...

Anyone remember those clear plastic landline phones where you could see all the parts?

Low Key said...

WickedBee said...

#4 then #7.
Loved the Motorola flip phone. I felt so cool.
And I probably still have my Nokia. That thing is bulletproof and would probably still work.

Thia said...

#4 haha And I think the service was Bell Atlantic. I still have the same cell phone number.

RowdyRodimus said...

First phone was a Spider-Man phone (sort of like the famous Mickey Mouse phones but with Spidey and the receiver rested in his webs)

Muckduck said...

9

bellabella said...

Me Again said...

My first phone was connected to the wall.

Jeff splatford said...

12. I actually miss it . it was one tough little fucker. it was dropped,kicked,stepped on, dropped in the toilet,ran over with heavy machinery,etc and it worked like a champ.Now if you fart with your phone in your pocket the screen cracks

Leila Haikonen said...

#4

Unknown said...

#5. Still have it, I was going through some old boxes in storage, and found it. Still fires up.

Dustin Lane said...

#1 & then had #3 for quite a while before many Nokias & Razors n then finally started w/ iPhone from 1-7 & then NO MORE & enjoy the Samsung 9-haha! Hope I don't get brain cancer from all that shit!

hothotheat said...

1st cell was #5.

T. W. said...

#9

Wish I still had it. I didn't know you could still use old phones to call emergency services.

Plus, that old phone was analog, not digital. You can still use it for other stuff if you know what you are doing.

Adrastia said...

Imagine 12. But black and without the antenna.It was a Nokia and I had it forever. Then I had to get a new phone because I needed a new provider. I have a LG flip phone.i have to have real buttons.I have zero need to fiddle with the interwebz when not at home.It's so distracting.

My phone really only has to be charged once a week.I only use it for phone calls and sometimes the calculator when I'm shopping.

When I was a kid we had a pink wall mounted rotary phone. My grandparents had the classic black rotary phone.

orangesoda said...

Probably 9

Fairylights Lam said...

The old princess slim line because I'm older than dirt! My first cell phone was 12, I loved being able to flip it open like I was on Star Trek.

Cee Kay said...

None of these has a cord, Enty...Oh, first cellphone? (Guess it's 12 year old Enty today.) Uh, 13 I think.

micmac said...

I think #1 was my first. It was a work phone and I left it in Peter Jones Department Store. No, I wasn't fired but I think it cost £2000 to replace.It was far to heavy to put in my handbag.

Mango said...

#9.

.

Jennifer said...

My first cell looked similar to #2. But not exactly. It was late 90's i think. It was metal and it was HEAVY!!!

I got my first cell phone last year after discovering Burner Phones watching Breaking Bad for the first time.

MsTowlie said...

I think #3. It was an OKI and my favorite gift of Christmas 1995. Still have the same number too.

memyselfandi said...

#9. I was 19 years old. I had an orange cover on it and LOVED it.

Zeroh Tollrants said...

#2, because I'm old af. Then 6,7,9,10,12 and other stuff afterwards.
I've had two iPhones, hated them, and have gotten other stuff.

Apple Pie is Good said...

#7, or something close to it (it was a Samsung).

Bitchysoisse said...

Cell phone was #2. But my real first phone was a yellow AT&T desktop model. You could easily have knocked someone out with that phone if you hit them in the head with it. I had it for about 20 years.

Anna said...

#3. I was driving 70 miles round trip each day to my office and often also to client's offices. Some days over 100 miles. Decided a pager just wan't enough.

#14 was my all-time favorite. BF got me a purple one from somewhere...Germany?

Melissa said...

#5 Motorola StarTac was my second (first isn’t pictured). The fun part was I worked in wireless at the time (back when there were many carriers in each market), so I remember the switch from analog cellphones to digital (still pissed my analog digits couldn’t be carried over because it was a great phone number).

One of the perks was receiving new gadgets from suppliers months before they were introduced and/or limited-run colours, etc., so it was a near constant rotation of equipment made easy by going downstairs and having someone change everything over in the system right then.

We also had those two-way pagers that had a full keyboard so after syncing up with your contacts, you had full access to your email and you could text individuals or set up groups. It was a great gadget at the time. Those things saw way more action than any phone ever did because we all hated talking on the phone even back then. Then Blackberry happened and Motorola took a bath on pretty much everything, including the two-way gadgets.
