    I have no idea, I can't remember that far back. It had a sim card the size of a credit card though!

    I had a lot of hand-me-downs over the years, then the first one I bought myself was the OnePlus One on 28th November 2014 for £274.29, absolute bargain at the time for an awesome phone. Loved it, only got rid of it late last year for another hand-me-down.

    Siemens S6, I remember saying to the guy in the shop what games it had on it (all of my friends had Nokia's, so it was all about the Snake)..

    He said to me, if you want to play games, buy a rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishing GameBoy...

    Re: QOTW: What was the first mobile phone you purchased?

    The first one I bought myself, rather than having handed to me when someone else upgraded, was the Sony Ericsson K800i.

    Over time, I took advantage of quite a bit of the firmware and software mods that had popped up for it.

    Nokia 3300 - the music phone - big selling point was being able to use mp3's as ringtones and wake up alarm.

    Motorola Memphis I was maybe 21, still at uni, and had just enough money left in my first term's grant and loan to afford the cheapest PAYG one2one offered. Notable only because when I left it in a pub after a drunken night out, someone stole the sim card but left the phone

    Re: QOTW: What was the first mobile phone you purchased?

    First own phone was a used blue Siemens C10D. That got damaged in an accident and replaced with a Mitsubishi Trium Astral (MT-140) in Dec. 1999. When that got stolen I bought a used Nokia 5110 with an extended battery and got into firmware modding on those DCT-3 platform Nokias... Tons of Nokia phones followed till they turned lame, slow and laggy with the symbian crap. Jumped ship to (Sony-)Ericsson for a dozen models over time and after that my Smartphone endeavor of never finding one that has all the features I want started...

    Most memorable thing about the C10D was that it was almost stupidly simple to use (which was odd because everyone said Nokia was the simplest) and even the standard battery lasted forever. Drawback was that spare parts were pretty much unobtanium, which is why it got replaced when the display got cracked in an accident and I couldn't find a replacement anywhere, not even in the form of used but dead phones.

    Motorola Timeport P7389, I think.
    One of the first phones I saw marketed as one you could take with you around the world because it was GSM and had most of the bands. Alas, never needed to use most of them, nor the fun travel charger kit that came with it, with adapter plugs I'd never seen before.

    MR15 in 1994, back in the days when there was one band and it was easier than phone than the twitter limit text (no camera, no pics, no emojis)
