    My first phone was the Motorola MicroTAC in 92 or 93. Can't really remember... but then I had to move so I got a MicroTAC lite (I think was the name).

    Nokia 6110 - Full phone specifications
    This was my very first cell phone. I got it in 2001 during my freshman year of high school in the Spring. Back then I had T-Mobile but it was called VoiceStream at the time.

    I loved that freaking thing, it was simple, small, unbreakable (metal replaceable cases), and always did its job right with reception everywhere.
    Well, except for the antenna which broke ALL. THE. TIME.

    Read the press release of HITACHI

    News Releases : Hitachi in U.S.A.

    Specifically this line "The P300 launched today by Sprint (NYSE: FON, PCS) also features a light sensor to automatically adjust the ringer volume when tucked away in a pocket or purse"

    Big deal for all the iPhone and even Pre announces they invented a ground breaking technology.
    The light sensors or call it proximity sensors ( by tweaking it)
    are around circa 2002.

    Same here! (Gotta love Snake 1.0) but I got it on ATT, Before they merged with PacBell who became Cingular who became ATT who became Cingular again who is now the "New" ATT" Worst cell phone company I have ever delt with.

    Edit: now that I think of it, I had a Motorola StarTAC but I don't remember if it was before or after the 6100.

    An Ericsson CF688 back in 1996 - it was small! It was even smaller after I ran over it with my car!

    Nokia 6650 (Nokia's first 3G phone) from 4 years ago..., quickly jumped to the Treo 650, within a few months. The 6650's UI was quiet horrible, though the phone was good, and voice quality excellent, especially the speakerphone.

Here's a photo of what it looked like:

    $1,200 for a phone back in '84? GOOD NIGHT! You obviously were a high-roller. I seriously have trouble justifying 1/2 that for a phone right here in 2009.

    Reminds me of Gordon Gecko. The character played by Michael Douglas in 1987's "Wall Street" (great movie).

    Look at how Douglas' hand is completely wraped around that beast. And even still, he can only manage to grip little more than half it's circumference. WOW, technology sure has changed. Those kinds of phones you could only look cool with while talking. Otherwise, you look like a complete ***** just walking around with one in your fist, because there's no way it's going in a shirt pocket. LOL!

    That "GordonGecko"-type phone was my second cell (I still have it).

    While these pics have the car adapter, it also ran on a battery. Imagine using the leather belt clip and strapping this behemoth to your waist! It could pull your pants down to embarrassing levels!

    My first was a bag phone, the handset literally clipped into the transceiver which was attached to a soft bag about the size of a large dictionary. I do not think it ever ran on battery, just on the cig lighter adapter.

    I haven't checked my credit card statement lately, as far as I know, I might still be paying for it.

    I also had the one you show in the photo of Michael Douglas, as well as two others that looked just like it only each one got thinner. Back in the '80s there wasn't a two year wait between phones, I actually would trade them in everytime a new smaller one came out, just add to your contract. You could even have two different phone numbers on the phone with two different carriers (I never did), but it had 'A' and 'B' bands, which was like having GSM & CDMA now, but on the same phone. I also once had two phones with the same number, but only one could be on at a time. I don't have any of those first phones because they'd always make me give them the old one to get the new one.

    Edit: Just went downstairs and found this book I bought a few years after I got my first phone because it had it on the cover and featured it inside. Very interesting look back as well as some good humor included. Here are links to how the book looked along with how the phone looked in the car and in the trunk.

    What happened to the photos that were showing?
