    Default What was your first mobile phone?

    The first mobile phone I owned was a Motorola MR30 on Orange. I got it on contract in 1996. The phone was brilliant at the time and I think it was specifically made for the Orange network.
    Anyone else have one of these phones? If not what did you have first and which network were you on?
    Heaven knows I'm miserable now.

    The beautiful Nokia 5110 on the now defunct BT Cellnet. It had interchangeable covers. Mine had a yellow cover. 1999.

    I had one of those too Tricky! Again on Orange network but on the orange network it had a different model number. Can't remember what it was like. I'm sure someone on here will know!

    Had a thought. Could have been known as a Nokia '402' on Orange.

    A red vodafone PAYG thing, around 1997 or 1998 I think.

    I've just been consulting our old friend Wiki and that is indeed the case. It also reminded me of the snake game that it had. So simple but hours of fun.

    My Dad & a few other people I knew had those. Interchangeable covers were a fad for a few years, I've still got a catalogue or 2 from a company called Mobile Style that sold many different ones.

    He had to give it back when he left his job, but still has an even older mid 1990s Nokia that's so big the SIM card is the size of a credit cart. I'll try & get a picture of it.

    My first Mobile was an Ericsson A2628s, which I still have & it still works. From Mobile Style I got a Bertie Bassett cover for it.

    It was also on BT Cellnet, which became O2. I was still using the original SIM until a couple of weeks ago in another phone but when I switched networks & took the number with me it stopped working.

    My first was a Bosch. Can't remember the model but it was a transparent bright orange one and i'm pretty sure that Orange was the network.
