Behold, my first cell phone:
I loved this classic Nokia brick phone. It was so simple. Butt dialing was prevalent though. The lock function is such a thing of the past.
Next B and I both got Samsung Blasts. I think he got one first and then I decided that it was cool and got the exact same one. It was a pretty awesome slider phone. The only problem is the buttons would stick. As far as I remember, these two phones were the only phones I had until 2009 while I was in post-bac. 2009 was apparently a very bad year for cell phones. This phone I accidentally washed in the washer. I tried using a blow dryer on low and taking out the battery and putting it in a bowel of rice to soak up the water, but the phone was already dead.

My next phone was the Motorola V290. I loved this phone because it had a nice, heavy feel to it and lots of cool extras like a nice camera. It started getting a bit buggy though...it sometimes took forever to dial out. This poor phone. I was in the premed society in post-bac and decided to volunteer for charity event put on by the MS Soceity called a "Mud Run". My phone slipped out of my pocket while I was adjusting one of these:
Yeah, it was a goner for sure. Sidenote: I would really like to actually participate in one of these mud runs one day, preferably on a warm day, anyone with me on that? So, at that point I decided that enough was enough and purchased cell phone insurance. Since I've been a bad, bad girl with phones and I really only need a simple phone, here is my current phone:
Sony Ericson, metallic green flip phone. This phone is simple but still has a lot of great features. It is starting to have some issues dialing out though. Still going strongish.
Meanwhile B has this phone:
The Nexus One.
I hope to inherit this one day when we have enough money to buy B a new phone...he's not tired of this one yet, but like I said, he's always looking for that next, upgraded piece of technology. Now I will definitely need some good insurance on this phone. Yikes I would cry if I broke this $500 phone.
I enjoyed this fun trip down memory lane...I can't believe I've owned 4 different cell phones
