    Default What was your first cool cellphone?

    Since there's a "worst phone" thread, why not a "coolest phone" thread? Let's not include the current or recent smartphones... but what was your coolest phone at the time you owned it?

    I'm going to go with the Motorola StarTac 7867W... sleek, almost sexy and just looked cool in your hand...

    I had a Startac, and the one after that, Microtac?

    I would say my first truly "cool" one was my MetalMoto, or whatever they were called.

    First was the DynaTac, the "banana phone". Next came the "brick" phone, the DPC650. That was followed by the comparatively miniature MicroTac and MicroTac II... and finally the StarTac. My wife had the DynaTAc... and I think I had all of the others... Motorola used to make some pretty sick stuff, for the day...

    I gotta go with my original Treo 270. I had actually been looking at Blackberries before that little beauty caught my eye. Paid almost $700 for it, too!

    I just recently got rid of it - mostly cause the lid was broken.

    I never really had a cool phone before my iPhone. I had crappy flip phones that broke then i had to use the extra ones laying around my house.

    Mine was the Nokia 6185. It was the first phone I started modding. I changed all the leds from the green to bright blue and put a flashing battery on it.



    Edit: I almost forgot the flashing antenna that was in the shape of a coke bottle.

    I had a StarTac too! It was my second phone. After having a bag phone (you know, the kind you just leave in your car 'cause it weighed like 15 pounds?) I thought the StarTac was amazing! Every time I whipped it out and pulled up the antenna I felt like I was in a spy movie or something!

    I have to say the phone I have the fondest memories of was my BlackBerry 8330. I sent it to ColorWare and had it painted metallic gold. It was hot! I called it BlingBerry or FlavaFlavBerry! That was my first smartphone.

    It was the Sony Ericsson t630. My first phone that could access the Internet. It also played very well with my GPS of that time. (No phone since then has done that as well!) After this phone I got the Sony Ericsson W880i. Famous last words- "Well, I don't really care if my phone plays music..." Little did I know! After that, the iPhone. I still have those SEs plugged in around the house in case I need an emergency 911 phone.

    Treo 300. That was back when the smartphone crowd was a more exclusive group. It was the iphone that really got things mainstreamed and brought the insane monthly plans along with it.

    Back in the day, when not many people had them - the Motorola brick-style bag phone was cool. I still have it - my first cell phone.

    My first was a Nokia with the game Snake which was great in its day, after that came a range of Nokia's and Sony Ericsson handsets followed by the first gen iPhone and every new iPhone model released since.

    T-Mobile Dash. My first smartphone. Anything before that was strictly a feature phone, and I never considered them cool.
