The One with The Phones

One of the guys on Twitter called Mark posted this image of his old mobile phone.

I counted through the phones that I’ve had since I got my first phone.

Trium AstralMy very first mobile phone was a Trium Astral and looked like this. It was a birthday present from my Mum and Dad. The blue bit on the front was replaceable but as I would find out the rubber buttons were rubbish lol. At one point I had to carry a pencil with me to be able to use one of the buttons because the keypad had literally come to pieces. My original cover was navy blue – when I bought a pink cover for the phone I decided that was boring and covered it in clear glitter nail varnish (apart from the screen) so that then it was girly and sparkly – I don’t think my Mum was too impressed  but it was arty and creative lol.

Nokia 3210

So then onto my second phone, the keyboard pretty much disintegrated on that one and I had to get a new phone. I think my new phone was a Nokia 3210, this phone was really cool at the time – it had cames and was a whole bunch more nicer than the Trium. Unfortunately it wasn’t mine for long, it got stolen from my bag while in school. I know who did it but the school couldn’t do anything about it because it was my own fault that I had it with me (My Aunt was picking me up from school that day – I didn’t have it with me so I looked trendy!)

So following the stolen handset story I then ended up without a phone for a month or so – I was 13/14 and I couldn’t get a job unless I got a paper round – mornings weren’t my thing. In the end, I got a reconditioned handset from my network – it wasn’t that exciting or trendy but it was better than no phone what so ever.


I got a Sagem, I’m not sure on the model – after all it was nearly 8 or 9 years ago that I had it but I remember it looked something like this. It wasn’t the newest phone on the block but my friend had a similar phone so we were kinda trendy together.

Those were just my first three phones – there are at least another 3 or 4 to go before getting to my iPhone I think.
