10 Years and Counting

[ Edited ]

Well what can I say, I’ve only just noticed that I’ve been on the Fourm since May 2008.  So it’s been 10 years and 2 months and still counting.

 

Heres to another 10+ years

 

Fantastic

 

My look back at phones from when I first started 19 years ago, First phone with Nokia 5110 on Orange.

 

Some of my phones and still own some too

Nokia 5110, 3210, 3330, 3330 3G, 6230i

Ericsson A1018

SE T68i, T610, K750i, K660i, K850i, P800, P900, K610, K700i K800, K810, W300i, C905

Siemens C35i, S45i

Motorola P7389, Razr V3

HTC HD2, HTC Desire

Samsung S7

Each iPhone from 4 including the plus models all the way to iPhone X 

Honor 10

Wileyfox Swift, Swift 2+

 

These are are what I can remember, I know there is more as I have more in my draw now that I’ve not even recorded, some cheap brands that are just of eBay.

 

but very scary on 19 years what I’ve had lol. 

 

My favourites old phones were Sony Ericsson. T68i, T610 and K810.

Nokia 5110 as it was my first ever phone.

Loved my Both Siemens phones and this was then I joined BT Cellnet.

HTC Desire I adored, wished it had more memory that’s all 150Mb was enough, but was a awesome phone 

 

First iphone 4 I loved I have to be honest, breath taking in what it could do.

 

Always wanted a Ericsson T39i. But skipped it and went to T68i. Never know, still may be get to own one one day 👍

 

Any how. That’s me, how about you ?

Well @darrengf my forum anniversary is 22nd August and it's been only 2 years but feels like a lifetime, in a good way.

Phones. Well I was PAYG fot years, first with Voda. While with them I started with a cheapo Sagem and then a Motorola flip phone, can't remember the model number. Fed up with Voda who I felt were too expensive for what they provided I moved to O2, still PAYG, and the Nokia 3310 which I had for a few years.

I finally decided to move to contract, with O2, and the Samsung Galaxy S3. From there, 2 years later, to the Galaxy Note 4. And 2 1/2 years later my present Galaxy S8+.

I came late to mobile phones and as you can see I've not had that many. But now I couldn't live without my mobile. I use my phone the way you use your PC.

Lover of all things Samsung. Currently using a Samsung S8+

Congrats on your 10 year anniversary @darrengf! That's a crazy amount of phones. I think I've only ever had  6 different handsets so I have some major catching up to do! 

 

2 and a half years on the Community for me.

Re: 10 Years and Counting

Thanks all. It’s been an amazing 10 years on the forum. I’ve learnt lots too. One thing that the forum has always done for me is being people together more like a family. It’s the passion that everyone has no matter if you work for o2, consumer etc to always help people.
Just shows what a great place it is and how people look out for each other.
Great to see what all the phones other people had and scary how many I go through lol. I have some that I didn’t even add to the list lol. I’ll have to take a picture and post it later 👍

@Marjo  It was my very first 'smartphone' and I hated it as I wasn't used to it. (I had no intention of entering the world of smartphones back then) I was 'pushed' by my sons Smiley Very Happy

It was small and I struggled to see the font blah blah blah. I called it a 'not so' smartphone Smiley Embarassed

If honest I was determined not to like it.

Once I changed for a better model, I was hooked.
