My mobile phone history

Call it an internet meme or not, this little exercise is a lot of fun to do mainly because you get to go down memory lane again and look back at all the previous mobile phones you have owned or used in the past.

It may reveal how old you are, but it will show you how far mobile phone technology has gone and it can offer as to what the future may hold.

For me, it all started in 1999 just before I graduated from elementary school when my grandfather gave me my first mobile phone as a gift. From then on it was ride from Siemens, to Nokia, to SonyEricsson to LG to BlackBerry and to the present, an HTC device.

So without further adieu, here’s the list of all of the mobile phones I’ve ever owned and used:

  • Siemens C25
  • Nokia 3210
  • Nokia 3310
  • Nokia 3595
  • Sony Ericsson K800i
  • LG Optimus One
  • BlackBerry Curve 8520
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700
  • HTC One V

On average, I used a phone for two years. The longest one I’ve used was the SonyEricsson K800i which I bought using my own money. The K800i was more than a phone, it was a point-and-shoot camera and a personal organizer rolled in one sleek and sexy design.

All of my Nokia phones were either handed down to me by my relatives or given to me as a gift. Though I forgot what happened to my Siemens C25, I distinctly remember the pain in the eyes whenever I checked my Nokia 3210 in the middle of the night because of its two signature white backlights. It was brighter than an ordinary flashlight!

The LG Optimus One was my very first touch-screen phone running on Android. Instantly, I became an Android fan. Though in between my first and current Android phone, I spent a few years using BlackBerry phones which I loved because of its physical keyboard and how it never failed in handling my office email. However, with RIM struggling to keep its devices on the same pace as the iPhone and Android phones, it was only logical that I switch back to Android upon leaving BlackBerry behind.

So at present, I have an HTC One V running on Ice Cream Sandwich. I wished it was running on the stock version but the HTC Sense 4.0 UI remains the best skin for Android up to date. As to what would be my next phone? Definitely it’s still going to run on Android but it would be Jelly Bean, as for the model and make, the jury is still out on this one.

  1. My first cellphone was the Nokia 3310 and right now I have the HTC One X+. Thanks for sharing this post/meme. I’ll probably do one myself and post it on my blog one of these days. 😀
