Post your cell phone family tree.

Got this idea from another forum...thought it would be fun.

Basically, start with your first cell phone and post each one you've had. Pictures if you can find it. Fun stories on how they got destroyed, etc.

_____________________________________________________________

Started out with an in-car mounted phone. 10 minutes a month...hells yeh.
(similar to this)
Nokia 5165

Other Nokia model (can't remember)
Nokia 6610


Motorola SLVR


Current. Motorola Evoke.


It does the most I've ever had on a phone...makes phone calls and sends text messages. I'm not into the whole internet on the phone thing.

I've also been with the same phone carrier since the in-car phone I had when I started driving.

Current work phone:
Samsung Rugby


Tough *** little phone. Went through a complete wash cycle in the washing machine. Left it in pants pocket. Sucker still works like a charm.
I've probably been through 6 or so work phones in the last 3 years, my job isn't nice to electrical equipment and the previous job wasn't any better.

Previous work phones:
Motorola W380

Motorola W315

Samsung A137

Re: Post your cell phone family tree.

Can't remember what my first cell phone was. I remember it was analog and huge and I think my plan included 20 minutes of talk time per month. Needless to say, I didn't use it much. What I remember most about it was the call quality. It sounded like I was talking on a wired house phone.

My second phone was a StarTac. I think everyone in my family had one at one point or another. My father just got rid of his 4 months ago.



It was probably the most reliable phone ever made. It was also very compact and comfortable. I had that for about 7 years before I traded it for a Palm Treo 650:



The 650 had nice apps for an early smart-phone. What it excelled in was personal information management. It had the best calender functionality of any phone I've owned. I had that for just over 2 years before it fell of my belt and got run over by a car in a parking lot.

Since I had so many accessories for the 650, my replacement phone was a Treo 700P that was little more than a minor upgrade to the 650:



All my comments for the 650 apply to the 700P as well.

When my contract was satisfied, I started looking for a more modern smart-phone. I wanted an iPhone but I wasn't willing to go to AT&T to get it. After much hemming and hawing, I finally went to the Palm Pre Plus:



The WebOS operating system is fantastic. I love the way it multitasks and it is very easy to use. It's app catalog is very good too as is it's Synergy feature that integrates information from various sources (Facebook, Gmail, Exchange, etc). I do have two issues with it though. First, the calendar isn't nearly as flexible as the Treo's. Second, and more importantly, the hardware is cheaply made. I'm on my second Pre (lost my 1st one) and they both have had issues with the keyboard skipping letters or doubling letters. There are also a lot of complaints on the Pre-Central message boards about audio jack failures, the sliding halves getting lose and rotating slightly and cracking in the body. I haven't experienced these other issues though.

I'm a little torn about my next phone. I love the physical keyboard on the Pre and it's size but I think the apps on the iPhone work slightly better and there are just more things you can do with it. I have an iPod Touch 4 and I use it often. I hate the on screen keyboard. Multitasking also stinks. As media players, the Pre is, at best, adequate but the iPhone/iPod is, as expected, fantastic. I still have 8 months on my Pre contract so I can wait a little. I'm curious to see what HP will do with the next Palm phones. Should be interesting...

Re: Post your cell phone family tree.

My first ever phone. Prepaid Motorola V171 from Net10 Wireless. What a piece of **** lol


My first ever contract phone from Alltel. The LG AX490. This phone was bad *** in every aspect except for the lack of video. It was the special edition Ryan Newman phone with the fast-tap keypad.


The next one was a gift from my girlfriend's mother at the time. The famous LG Chocolate from Verizon I beat that phone to pieces.


Possibly my favorite phone I've had was the LG Rhythm. Simple, compact, played music, and it could send/receive video. It also survived a tour in Iraq with me.


I had two of these. The first one **** on me after about 3 months. The LG Chocolate Touch from Alltel. On screen keyboards are the worst invention of the 21st century.. It was a pretty good phone other than that.


I've had this LG 420G flip for like 7 months now. It's a StraightTalk from Walmart. It's been pretty good to me. I still use it... that is, until the month is up.



My current phone. I've had it 3 days, and it's by far the coolest piece of technology I've put my hands on. The Motorola Flipside from AT&T. Android 2.1 OS, and more complicated than an Italian sports car. I love it! I would have gotten the LG Quantum, but the Flipside has a better slide-out keyboard.

Re: Post your cell phone family tree.

1.
Had this for two years. Only phone I never replaced even once in a two year span (NOT MY ACTUAL PHONE BUT VERY SIMILAR)
2.
Samsung Blade (Sprint's Answer to the Razor) - This phone was the ****!
3.
Samsung Rant (I still have this phone on an activated Line I do not use - it's over 4 years old probably)
4.
Samsung Instinct (Still have this phone but dont use it - it was quick snappy and awesome)
5.
HTC Diamond (POS - WinMo was terrible - I'll never ever get Windows Mobile OS b/c of this phone)
6.
Sprint HTC Hero (Still have this with my buddy on my line... currently Rooted with Customer Savage Kernel.. this phone is pretty sick)
7.
Palm Pre - Please go far far away. While this phone worked decent, I hated it.
8.
Sprint HTC EVO 4G (No Phone compares---until the HTC Thunderbolt drop, this is a mini computer) This phone is strong, rigid, amazing. Android OS FTW (currently rooted with Myn's Warm TwoPointTwo RLS5 and SBC More HAVS Kernel) iPhone4s can't compare.

I have for years had iPhones, iPods/iTouches, and currently iPad in my family that I use constantly and can honestly say I will never own an iOS phone unless it was a business requirement or necessity (my employer) They are great phones, but I'm no fanboy and well, I like OS. As you can see I have been with Sprint since the beginning, and will more than likely never swap. With free roaming for phone and data, I never lose coverage thanks to Verizon's network. I also have the cheapest/best plan option of all the Big 3. Hopefully Sprint will have something interesting to share with us Feb. 7th at the MWC.

Re: Post your cell phone family tree.

Whoa! Great thread! Hrm let's see..

First phone:

This exactly. Horrible service, terrible phone, super slow at doing anything. Glad it's gone.

Second phone:

Motorola 120c. Doesn't this phone look stylish and hip! So cool! I can program my own ringtones! I had to use a series of numbers to program in the tones. Yeah, I was riding high!

Third phone:

Wow it actually flips! And it can play games?! Tetris?? Whoa! Also it was pretty slow.

Fourth phone:

The first phone I was proud to have! This was the only phone at the time that you could "hack" and put videos and ringtones into and really customize the hell out of. Loved this phone. So many good memories, including the color! It had a color screen on the front and back!! Cutting edge! Did I mention the ringtones that actually played were REAL songs? Not the horrible midi? Man good times.

Fifth phone:

This is the phone I have now. Yes, I know. This phone came out when the first iPhone came out. I remember it being such a big deal because this phone has a touch screen on it. The one thing I love about this phone is that it is just like my motorola in the way you'd get vid and ringtones. It's a sneaky way but you get the same results. But the one other big thing I love about it is the flip open to a HUGE keyboard. I'm 6'2 with hands like a bear, so texting is a breeze on this phone, and it's the main reason why I haven't switched to anything else. I need a full keyboard if I want to continue typing quick without smashing 3 buttons at once. I love this phone, but I think it's time to grow up and move on.

Next phoen to have within a month:

Thunderbolt! My first droid phone. I may be on the fence with getting this or the iPhone, but i'm more than sure I'll fall into getting the HTC Thunderbolt. It's big, and I'm going to just bite the bullet and try to get used to texting on the touch screen. Wow this was a blast down memory lane.

Check out Androidforums.com --- Get the Thunderbolt. My EVO will soon be that thing's little brother and boy will I envy you. I'm sure Sprint has something interesting to announce at the MWC on Feb 7th.

Seriously, Android FTW. You'll never look back. iOS can't hang with the amount of customization and options. HTC has the best overlay (Sense UI) and they are quick with support and Software updates.

Yeah I did my homework on phones for a while, so I know going with HTC is the best route.

The iPhone5 and it's rumored hardware specs such as it's dual core 1.5ghz processor and others will be just the run of the mill phone by the time June comes out. It's been known for a while that 2011 would be the year of the Android as last year was the year of the Tablet and the year before that was the year of the Apple.

Get me, I'm not knocking the iPhone and it's great UI at all. Apple has done plenty with it's phone and hardware and makes an excellent product. It caters too soo many people. That's what I don't like about it... everyone has the samething. Then again, I've always been a fan of open source.

Re: Post your cell phone family tree.

So tell me what is so awesome about the droid from the iphone from your personal experience. I don't really want to hear AT&T sucks because we all know that, and with Verizon getting the iPhone that'll change.

Re: Post your cell phone family tree.

I just really don't like closed source software. I know you can jailbreak iPhones and all that, and that Droids can be rooted, but stock for stock, I like to be in a little more control of my hardware.
Just like my computer, I bought a brand spankin new eeepc netbook, and as soon as I got home, I installed Linux and overwrote Windows without even thinking about it.
I can do a lot more of the things I want and need to do with open source software, and yes I know there is no official customer service for it, but there is a lot of info out there. I have never had a problem that I couldn't solve without Google.
I don't want to throw this thread off topic and involve computers, but it's where these phones got their OS's.
Make your Windows screen look like this!
Open source rocks!

Even beyond that, Android is so much more similar to using a PC than just a UI that makes everything simple and pretty. iOS works for plenty of people and will continue to appeal to the masses, there is nothing wrong with it, just not my cup of tea.

Disagree. Your not going to see an increase in quality just becuase subscribers jump boat. AT&T has terrible quality Dropped calls/Not receiving calls They can claim 97% coverage but it's terrible. They need major network restructure and increase in quality. It's rumored that GSM will be phased out (let's face it, it's old technology) and from what I understand HPSA is not the future of cell phone companies either. AT&T can blame it on network overload but I call BS. Verizon is still the largest subscriber based provider and they don't face the issues AT&T blames on overload. Although, I can imagine we will see a decrease in Verizon customer service and cell quality in the next year as even more subscribers jump boat.

I'll stick with Sprint (10 years and running)

I can do a lot more of the things I want and need to do with open source software, and yes I know there is no official customer service for it, but there is a lot of info out there. I have never had a problem that I couldn't solve without Google.
I don't want to throw this thread off topic and involve computers, but it's where these phones got their OS's.
Make your Windows screen look like this!
Open source rocks!
I run uBuntu 10.10 on my netbook that came with Windows 7 Starter.

Re: Post your cell phone family tree.

I dual boot Kubuntu and Windows 7 on my laptop. Only reason for Windows 7 is I have to have it to do remote desktop to my PC at work.

Although maybe I could just run it in a VM...

PS > I'm sorely missing the "confused chin scratch" smiley...
