It was such a cool phone at the time, amazing how quickly technology has changed, I seem to remember you could change the blue key background and put a different coloured ring round the bottom of the aerial and I also remember buying a flashing aerial that flashed when it was about to ring which I thought was great :oops:

About two weeks after I got this phone I had my first car accident as a driver and I was able to call myself an ambulance and the police, some twerp drove on the wrong side of the road round a corner and broked my first car :-( It was quite a busy road and I was the only person with a phone at the time :w00t: I feel quite old now!

Have always stayed with Ericsson though, now got a C902!

Ericsson t10

It was actually quite a nice phone and would probably compare well even to today's mobile phones.

Nokia 1610
then 3210
3310

Nokia 5110
Legend of a phone, just for Snake alone.
[Edit] ... and for the exchangeable covers! I was always the coolest kid in school with those bad boys! Even had a flashing aerial

Man alive Shengis right with you there! ive spent all say trying to remember what the damn thing was called!! :?
It was an amazing fone I used to stick mine in a pint of beer if it rang lol (only when drunk) they certainly dont make em like they used too!! it was a tough cookie lol oh my the memories. . . . .and before txtin was even invented! lol

foxymissroxy;3468930

and before txtin was even invented! lol



But they were SMS capable, just 121 didn't carry the service at that time. Which brings me nicely onto another of my old phones. The uber rare V100 text phone(long gone thanks to ebay).....

I had two of those. Each one was turned off before I even used up the original credit Id paid for!

My first was a motorola flair. Quite simply the worst phone Ive ever owned - and the reason I'd never buy another motorola. Would just turn off for no reason other than a faulty manufacturing design in the battery not fitting correctly. After 5 replacements I just gave up.Think it cost me £200 as well!!!!
