    Ok here's mine in reverse chronological order (updated 5/12/14):


    Phones
    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (acquired 5/9/14)
    Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (acquired 5/13)
    Motorola DROID Bionic (acquired 9/11)
    LG Ally (acquired 8/10)
    LG EnV 2 (acquired sometime mid 2009 I believe)
    LG Vx8300
    LG Vx4500
    LG Vx????
    Verizon Qualcomm Kyocera QCP-??
    Bell Atlantic Mobile Qualcomm QCP-??
    Bell Atlantic Mobile 300D (first phone on BAM, acquired spring of '97 after missing important call while on Sprint between DC and Richmond VA)
    Sprint PCS - Maybe Qualcomm or Nokia (first cell phone, acquired either fall of '95 or spring '96)AC Members - Tell us about your device history!-1385738010180.jpg

    This pic shows the first two BAM phones, first Verizon phone, and the Vx4500. Took the pic in Feb '06 as I was preparing to move, and wanted to document for posterity!

    Still have the EnV, Ally and the two Vx phones, traded in the Bionic to reduce the cash out for the Note 2. I thought the Bionic was a giant leap forward from the Ally and was a great phone, but this Note 2 is freakin' fantastic!!

    My mistake whatever was before the 4500 then, looks awful similar except now that I look closer the Verizon logo is in a different location. Thanks for pointing that out.

    I recently collected pics of every cell phone I've ever owned, and then it occurred to me that it might be fun to post a thread about them. It would be interesting to see what phones other people have used over the years. I'll start.

    1995: Sony CM-H333 - GTE [Analog]
    Sony CM-H333 review - Engadget

    My first cell phone. Nicknamed the "Mars Bar" due to the long, round shape (the rear being rounded, with ridges to hold on to), this phone featured a slide-up earpiece that was used to answer or hang up the phone. Note the thumb jimping along the sides of the gray square earpiece.

    1997: Sony CM-RX100 - Cellular One [Analog]

    I couldn't find a web page for this phone, but this phone was the first recipient of Sony's Jog Wheel, a very popular feature that was turning up on lots of Sony gear at the time. When this phone was released, I believe it was the smallest phone on the market. It's roughly the size of an Altoids tin, minus the antenna, and the microphone stalk would answer calls when flipped down, and hang up when flipped up. I saw it in a number of movies from the era.

    1998: Sony CMD-Z1 Plus - Sprint [GSM]

    I liked my Sony RX100 that I bought the digital version of it. Around this time, digital service was being rolled out and heavily promoted. Sprint was a GSM carrier back then, though they were soon to sell off their GSM service.

    2000: Motorola i1000plus - Nextel
    Motorola i1000plus specs

    I got a new job at the beginning of 2000, requiring 24/7 support on occasion, and was issued a Nextel i1000plus by the company, so I sadly couldn't justify paying for the Sony too.

    In 2003, my i1000plus broke (the flip cover was notoriously weak and easily damaged), and got upgraded to this. It was my first phone with a color screen. We were NOT issued the optional plug-in cameras.

    2004: Motorola E815 - Verizon [CDMA]
    Motorola E815 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In mid-2004, it was clear that the company I was working for wasn't long for this world (we were training contractors to replace us), so I was going to be losing the company phone too. I picked up the excellent E815 flip-phone, my first camera phone (camera was awful!). This was also the first phone that I had that had Internet access that actually DID anything - I could check my emails, though the experience left much to be desired. Call quality was fantastic though.

    I started my own company in 2005, doing lots of field work, so like most field techs, I picked up the cheap MetroPCS Nokia to get unlimited phone minutes for dirt cheap. The phone, while super-basic, was also tough as hell, lightweight, had decent battery life, and was cheap to replace if damaged.

    2007: HTC Titan VX6800 - Verizon [CDMA]
    HTC Titan (Windows Mobile phone) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The company was doing well, and we started having a bit of money, so I got my first smartphone. This was just before the iPhone came out, so at the time, a WinMo 6 phone was pretty cool. That wouldn't be the case for long, though, and I didn't know at the time how badly Verizon locked down the phone. I'd have been much better off with Sprint, except we were able to get a corporate account and had multiple devices that no one else had.

    2008: Motorola RAZR v3s - MetroPCS [CDMA]
    Motorola RAZR V3s specs

    The economy crashed, and our business got hit hard, so we had to cut back expenses and eventually expand out-of-state to keep the company alive. I went back to Metro's cheap unlimited service, but on their cheaper version of the RAZR. I still have this phone, and it's still great for a basic flip phone.

    2008: Motorola i776 - Boost Mobile [Nextel]
    Motorola MOTO i776 specs

    Later in the year, both of the companies we were working for required that we get a Nextel for our dispatcher/supervisor (aka: me), so I switched to this garbage Boost Mobile Nextel. I hated this phone, and lobbied against their use. As it turned out, the Nextel features were almost never used, and the requirement to use them was dropped in favor of regular phone calls (duh!). I went back to my RAZR in 2009.

    2011: LG Optimus V - Virgin Mobile [CDMA]
    LG Optimus S specs

    I got my first Android phone early in 2011. Cash being tight, I went with Virgin Mobile, who had the best smartphone plans at the time. This FroYo (Android 2.2) phone was far from great, but it got me by for 2 years.


    AC Members - Tell us about your device history!-lg-nexus-4.jpg
    2013: LG Nexus 4 - T-Mobile [GSM]
    Google Nexus 4 specs

    Exactly 2 years to the date from getting the Optimus V, I upgraded to the Nexus 4. This is easily the best phone I've ever owned, and while I'd love to upgrade to the N5, the truth is the N4 is so good that I can easily live with it for another year or more.

    Why limit history to cell phones?
    Don't forget the Palm Pilot and Windows pda's.
    Mobile devices. It is awkward these days when my wife asks me 'do you have that data on your phone?'
    My GN3 is, only incidentally, a phone.

    I'm cool with that. I find it interesting how people have gotten to their current devices, and what drew them to their previous ones. If you want to add PDAs, go for it!

    In 2002 I jumped on the bandwagon and finally went mobile. Not pictured was a. POS kyocera on Verizon with rubber buttons. had 4 replacements for that thing. Finally I got fed up and demanded that they replaced my 4th defective hunk of crap with literally anything else they had. They begrudgingly ended up giving me the glorious bottom of the line clunker pictured in the left of the photo. I was a Quallcom something or other. It actually did 1x data and stuff but I didn't know what that meant back then. It had a 9' antenna! It was indestructible.

    Then I had the LG vz8100 clamshell. This was my favorite phone. (also not pictured) I hacked the blutooth to transfer files (Verizon locked blutooth for headset use only) I stored mp3's and videos by bypassing stupid Get it Now pay service. And unlocked the built in music player. Good times with that phone!

    The Samsung flip in the picture was my girlfriends.

    Next I got the orange EnV. This was basically the same thing as the 8100 but with a keyboard. By this time vz made it harder to hack, but also made it so that it didn't need to be. Texted like a mofo with this. Also started to try to do more mobile web stuff. Amazing what you could do with a 1.5" screen

    After that I decided it was time for a smartphone. We got the 2 for 1 deal on the Blackberry Tour. Opened up a whole new world for me. Spent a lot of time making custom themes and icons and stuff.

    Finally got an android after that. I got the Droid Incredible 2. When there was a couple 4g LTE options available. The Thunderbolt and the Charge I still went with the 3g droid. The overall physical design and feel sold me. While friends with Tbolt and charge were constantly complaining, my dinc2 was solid. With about a month left on my contract I dropped it pretty hard and messed up the touchscreen. I lived with it and finally upgraded to the Razr M I have now. This is a tough little phone.
