My very first phone

Centuries has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

I had it since 1997, when I went to college at 14, was my first phone after all, I changed to the RIM 857 in 2000. The coolest phones of the 20th century too, but now it was not that usable anymore. Bless God.

I still have this phone activated. It's in great shape. Everything about it is nice for it's time. Plan to keep it until it dies. The screen may be small but it is an awesome phone to work with. Good reception and good call quality.
