I'm curious to see what phones everyone here has had in the past, and what they have now. You can also include any notes on why you bought whatever phone if you like.
Here's my "phone timeline":
This was the first cell phone I ever had, my mom got it for me for my 18th birthday, even though I was very reluctant to get a phone because I enjoyed being hard to get a hold of as a teenager.
Blackberry Pearl 8100
A few months after having my first cell phone, my girlfriend at the time convinced me to get a blackberry, because BBM was the
thing back in 2008.
Blackberry Bold 9000
This was the first cellphone I ever got excited about. I bought a preproduction model off craigslist for $500 before it was released to the public. It was a fucking tank of a phone and lasted me years. One night I got super drunk with some friends and tossed it in the bushes so we could go pool hopping. When I came back for it less than an hour later it was gone.
This was my introduction to touchscreen phones and Android OS. When I first got it, it kept unlocking in my pocket and calling people. Eventually the screen glitched out on me and about half the time it was unusable. I never warrantied it with HTC because I'm lazy.
After my HTC crapped out on me I was given this from another GF who upgraded to the iPhone 4. It did the job but wasn't anything to get excited about.
This is my current phone and the biggest one yet. I have to admit that I've been converted to the bigger is better camp, especially if you want to do any kind of web browsing on your device. I'm really satisfied with many aspects of this phone, but it is starting to feel a bit dated, and I'm getting serious phone envy from my gf's nexus 4.
So that's my phone timeline, what's yours?
