I refuse to Facebook so I guess I'm out of the giveaway, but I'll still share my first phone here anyhow. Stationed in Korea back in '99, my first phone was a prepaid G2 phone by Hanwha. The retailer had to write the instructions down in English for me on a post-it to attach to the interior of the flip cover.
Sadly, it did not survive an around-the-world Myung Jin [drunk] bus trip back to my post. Still have it's replacement in storage though.

My first cell phone was through AT&T and it was constructed of a long clothes line with paper cups on either end. And, yes, still used by AT&T; it's their flagship device.

Samsung SCH-A650! It was an extremely tiny no camera having silver flip phone with the best cell reception I have ever had! I lost that phone twice and it came back to me! One time it fell off the back of my brother's vehicle bumper where I left it and ended up on the interstate while we were on the way from Louisiana back to Alabama and a road worker found it and actually mailed it back to me! One of the hinges was a little damaged but it got me through to my next upgrade!

Nokia bar phone when I was 16 years old, got it all on my own and paid for it myself. (my parents weren't a fan of it, but when my sister turned 14 she got a phone for free ee -_-). I don't have it around anymore. Gave it to my brother as a gift and he lost it.

The Kyocera KWC 2135 with Verizon was my first phone back in 2002 during my freshman year of high school. That phone was taken away so often by teachers because it was so thick I couldnt conceal it in my pockets well enough without teachers knowing it. Suprisingly I still have it, I should put it in a time capsule just so some kid can find it be amazed.
