    The title says it all. The smartphone was around for quite some time. I know I've seen a lot and they were clunky.

    But what was your first smartphone that made you love smartphones?

    For me, mine was the blackberry 9930. That was actually my very first smartphone.

    First device that made me feel like owning smartphone was iPod Touch.
    (if you count my 5800 XM as dumb phone)

    First smartphone which made me like smartphones is Galaxy s4

    I got my first smartphone in 7th grade, and it was the Samsung SCH-i600. I used it for a few weeks, and then decided that it wasn't worth the $750 that I (well, my mom) paid for it. So I guess my first true smartphone would be the one that I actually kept, which would be the BlackBerry 8700c. It was a beast and instantly made me a CrackBerry addict.

    Me too. And the Motorola Q. I would have gotten one if Verizon was in my area at the time.

    Me too! I had to Google it before I remembered the name. For some reason "X" just kept popping in my head but I knew that wasn't right. Luckily Google can be a pretty good problem solver!

    The only time I ever got to use one extensively was when my boyfriend had one on Sprint. I liked it from what I saw but he hated it, though that was mostly because of Sprint's service.

    I think it was this HTC 9500 specs, or one similar generation earlier.

    Probably not a smart phone per se, but after all the dumb flip phones, I had a Sony Ericcson S710a, which was my favorite phone until the iPhone 3G.

    My first smartphone that made me fall in love with smartphones was probably the blackberry storm 2. it was so amazing for it's time. I loved the clicking the phone made when you texted and the camera was pretty fantastic. i miss blackberry, at least the style the storm 2 held.

    Not sure if this would count as a smartphone but mine was the Motorola V551. It's a flip phone but had edge connectivity and web browsing capabilities.

    First smart phone was a Tmobile MDA. It was the standard sideways sliding Windows Mobile Phone made by HTC.

    It was not my first "smart device" however as prior to that I had many PDAs.
