I was wondering, what were all the cell phones that you have owned?

While I don't remember the specific years that I have had them, I can remember the models.
  • My first phone was a Nokia 3620 candybar phone based on the Symbian S60 platform.
  • My second was a Nokia N75 flip phone, also based on Symbian S60.
  • My third and last Symbian S60-based phone was a Nokia 6650 fold flip phone.
  • After leaving Symbian S60, I went over to BlackBerry. My first BlackBerry was a BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300.
  • My second and last BlackBerry was a BlackBerry Torch 9810.
  • Then, I went to Android with the Samsung Galaxy Note series. My first Note was the Note 2.
  • Then I got the Note 3.
  • I skipped the Note 4, but got the Note 5.
  • Luckily I skipped the Note 7 (there was no Note 6), and my current phone is the Note 8. I don't plan to upgrade anytime soon since I am holding off until 5G matures.

Could you remember all your cell phones that you had?

Nokia all the way from the late 80's till two years ago (had contract testing their new phones, so, got a new flagship from each serie few times a year). Lots of phones over those years - flip, slide, twist, swivel, touchscreen - you name it. No way I could remember all of them.
I think the first one was Mobira. It was a heavy brick, lol.
Then I had the first digital 1011, it was so much nicer! A slider phone (I think I still have some of them in the garage, together with all sorts of pagers).
Most had a very impressive camera, especially the Lumias (1020 model had 41 MP's) I had many pictures posted here, on C-D.
The last one was Lumia 930. Both 1020 and 930 are still running fine, just don't get any software updates.

Now I am having a Pixel phone...

Can I remember? No. A bunch of Nokias that I enjoyed then went to the iphone 4 years ago and never looked back. Flip phones are nice, but was forced into texting by my 30ish coworkers. Goodby flip, hello iphone. Love my current iPhone . Will never go back. All i can say, been a cell phone guy since since the late 1990s. Dropped the landline six/7 years ago. No regreets

Oy - not gonna remember every one as I had one like every few months working in IT. But the brick phones were Nokia or Motorola - StarTac, Razr, etc. My very first personal cell was a Qualcomm Sprint PCS phone. I think that was essentially the only one available.

Then it was the Palm, and Blackberry - not quite smart phones.

Smartphones - Started w/ Blackberry Storm, Curve, etc. Then Androids - pretty much Samsung Galaxy's and now Pixel's.

No way I could remember that, having upgraded every two years since our first in 1992. That's a total of 12-13 different models.

Good grief. I got my first phone (a Motorola) in 2014 and still have it. It calls, texts, takes pictures, and gets on the Internet. That's all I need.

By the way, I'm not a technophobe at all. I had a PC and modem in the early 1980s when they were still widely considered a curiosity and there was hardly anything to dial up to. I just haven't felt any need to upgrade my phone yet.

My first was a car phone. No way do I remember all in the intervening years.

I can't remember my first phone in 1991/2. It wasn't a Motorola but was pretty brick-like, weighed about a pound if I recall. Any suggestions?

My current phones are a Note 9 and an iPhone X. Holding off any upgrades until 5G arrives.
