    My first cell phone was the Qualcomm QCP 2700 that I got in late 1998. Been with Sprint ever since.

    What was your first cell phone?

    Mine was a Motorola TAC car phone, which was hardwired into my car at the time. Needless to say, it wasn't very mobile... unless you consider driving around to make a phone call mobile. lol.

    It was with the old company "360 Communications" which eventually became AllTel, which eventually became Verizon. True story.

    Talk about taking a trip back in the really way back machine.

    My grandmother had one of the earlier cell phones back when everyone only called them "mobile" phones. BTW it was even pronounced mow-bile back then.

    Lessee I had a Mitsubishi bag phone (but it wasn't really a bag, it was a hard case battery pack, and cell). Then eventually got a Moto-Star-Tac, then upgraded to the Elite.

    I also had the extended battery for that one - makes the Amzer 3800 look anorexic.
