What was your last cell phone?

For me it was a Motorola Q. Before that it was a Crackberry 7250. Before that it was a Samsung i700 first generation windows smartphone.

So, tell us about your phone addiction. :)

The list is long... still sitting on my desk are the following:
  • Sprint Moto Q
  • Verizon Moto Q
  • Treo 700p
  • Treo 700w
  • Treo 650
  • Treo 300
I'm not a typical user though.:p

Most recent was the Blackjack, which was a fantastic phone. Once I learned a couple of battery saving tricks (keep it on edge for email, etc., only use 3G when browsing internet), it was the best phone I ever had. Small, light, and with the 3rd party apps...I could make it do anything.

Had the Q before that...Treo 650...iJam...treo 600...countless others.

Still...the iPhone has the most promise of any phone. still need 3rd party apps and some OS tweaks (landscape on demand in all apps, MMS, louder volume, etc.). But there is no competition for internet browsing, the phone part is easier to use than the competition, and the iPod has no peer. The PDA part just needs some improvement.

My most recent was a Motorola Q.

Before that was a Treo 750. And a 700. And a 650. And a 600.

The iPhone is light years ahead of any of those, especially the Treos. I've never used a more unstable product than the Treo. People complain about their iPhone Safari browser occasionally closing, but I'll take that any day over having to pop the back off a Treo and doing a soft reset every hour because it was locked up.

- Treo 750
- Blackjack (which I'm using right now for Exchange email)

My story is actually pretty funny, at school i was known for having the most "ghettoest" phone (in a bad way). but now i can safely say that i went from having the worst cell phone to having the best. anyways i had a Samsung SCH A670 which originally looked like this
http://www.mobiledia.com/phones/images/Samsung/sch-a670.jpg but after a year and a half i "dropped it" and the flip part broke completely off. but it still worked i just needed to use a headset all the time since the hearing part was on the top flip side that broke off. so my phone no longer rang anymore i had to put it on silent every time i turned it on. i had to memorize the menus just to call someone in my phone book like i had to press 3 buttons then start typing there name then i could call them or just dial a number. you could never see or tell who's calling or if you have missed calls or anything. all my friends actually thought it was cool because of how it still worked and everything after being broken in half lol. and i used this phone like that for about 3-4 months lol. this is what it looked like during those 3-4 months till this day.
