Something different -- what phone you've got. Seeing as, like everyone has one nowadays

I'm currently on a Palm Centro, might buy an old hiptop2 for the unlimited SMS/data.

To be honest, I don't use a phone. I would love to, because with Microsoft ActiveSync, I get unlimited access to the internet, even in school!

Very rarely use it, haven't charged it in months and just lost the 2nd phone number I've had on this phone through lack of use/giving Optus money.

Pretty durable, been dropped a lot, whenever someone asks to see it/use it I can't fight the urge to say "here, catch"

Thats the phone I'm meant to have, Sony Ericsson W910, but it's away for repair because it's an epic fail...

So I have this for now, Nokia 2630, which has a massive price tag of £20...and I love it! It's thin, texts, phones, and never ever ever crashes!

I also have a Sony Ericsson K800i as my work phone.

That is my phone:

It is a buggy preview sample of the Siemens CX65 (nearly 5 years old). I don't really
care much about phones, I have no contract, just have a prepaid-card. Of course,
listening music and taking pictures with your phone can be useful, but for these
purposes I got my digital camera and my iPod.

hate phones. They drive me insane with their inadequacy. However, it's passable in the few cases I need emergency internet, and works well as another way that people can get in touch only for me to ignore them :)

My first phone:

Image removed. Use the image uploader.

Nokia 1100...basic, but damn good. Bought it locked to Telstra, then about a year later unlocked it myself and switched to Vodafone after I got sick of paying Telstra's ass-raping prices. :P

My second phone:

Image removed. Use the image uploader.

LG KP202...an alright phone...better than the Nokia in some ways (flip phone, colour screen, camera, GPRS), worse in others (battery life sucks, as does range) I've actually retired the LG for the next few months, since I'm now living on campus and I find the Nokia gets better coverage around the campus.

With the latest firmware v30 it's running very smooth. Plenty of storage and every feature you could want. N97 should be out in a few months showing off s70 I believe and touchscreen. That should be my next phone.

I have 3 phones total. All on AT&T.

1) LG CE110: My parents got this phone for me on my 18th birthday and thought it was the greatest thing in the world because it was free with a new line activation. Thus, I am "technically" stuck with it until a new upgrade until February 2010. :? The only cool thing about the little guy is it has bluetooth. Other than that, it scratches, makes annoying sounds, and had the smallest screen for any phone I've EVER witnessed. Even my friends were amused by it. It made me feel inferior as a man! haha. Just kidding.

Image

2) Motorola RAZR2 V9: I bought this on eBay in June last year [literally 4 months after dealing with the Lousy Gadget], and it has been wonders. It was the best phone to text with without a QWERTY keyboard and the best RAZR phone until they updated it this year. I still use it to this date for taking excellent quality images, texting, browsing at 3G speeds, bluetoothing [or beaming in the WMobile world], and music [SD Card]. The only nag is the SIM card being behind the battery and touch-finger glass screens, but hey! It's a touch screen! :)

Image

3) AT&T Tilt [HTC]: This phone I bought from a friend of mine last October? who bought a new one [to put on insurance] and didn't need it anymore. So I bought it from him and it became my first Windows Mobile smart phone! Some cool things of course are Windows Mobile [allows more program options and not as constricted to java like Motorola and LG], touch screen, SD-Card, and it tilts a QWERTY keyboard! Some cons are its weight and bulkiness, they advertise a 3.0 MP camera...but it take worse images than my Moto V9, and it's so hard to dial a number [which is the main purpose of the PHONE!]. I currently use it as my organizer for school.

Image


I officially stopped buying phones [lol] because I don't think I need anymore. True, there are cool phones out there, primarily for others services, but AT&T doesn't offer a lot besides Windows Mobile phones, and the iPhone [which I MIGHT get, but I already have an iPod touch]. I've considered getting a Sony Ericsson because they all have some cool photo quality, but that Nokia 3315 below looks beautiful and simple! haha

Bought a new phone today, a Nokia 6300.
So far I'm enjoying it, well worth the $159 I paid for it.
