    I had totally forgot about that snake game!! I was mildly addicted to it at one point I think!
    Heaven knows I'm miserable now.

    I never wanted a mob. Then I went on a first Aid course at work and felt the need for one in case I bumped into an injured person nowhere near a land line. It was a Nokia(not good with model numbers/names.....same with cars)

    I resisted getting a mobile until they became cheap, & also I got a job that needed 2 buses to get to, so I needed to let my parents know I was running late.

    Originally I was thinking about getting a Trium Mars, but Index were out of stock & offered me the Ericsson instead.

    My life in mobile phones...Nokia 5110, Nokia 8210, Sony Ericsson T120(?), Motorola Pebl, Nokia 6300 and my newest, (just acquired today!) Samsung Monte.

    I got a Samsung Monte just a couple of weeks ago, when I switched from 02 Pay & Go to a T-Mobile 10 a month contract.

    No idea on the model, but it was Motorola, and my provider was Cellnet. Usual brick, with a superfluous looking aerial sticking out the top. It was 1996, and there was an enclosed competition with the phone to win tickets to a Euro 96 football match by completing the slogan 'I chose Cellnet because'. I wrote 'do I not like Orange', as it was around the time of Graham Taylor's advert, sent the entry off and forgot about it. Then a month or so later, I got a card backed stiff envlope through the post, no idea what it could be, opened it to see a letter headed 'CONGRATULATIONS!' and dipped into the envelope again to find 2 tickets for the Old Trafford Euro quarter-final! Maybe no-one else had entered, but my slogan had won. The game turned out to be Germany v Croatia, which wasn't a very good match, but it was still nice to experience some of Euro 96 for free thanks to Cellnet.

    Impressed that you still have them all. I don't have my first one. Mam still uses the 8210, the Sony Ericsson might be with my parents too but unused as it never got unlocked, I've still got the Pebl and obviously the 6300. This touch screen on the Monte takes a bit of getting used to though, but it's pretty cool. I'm on a 10 a month contract too so I don't have access to all the bits and bobs but I can live without those. Teenagers, on the other hand, don't seem to be able to!

    I was very late to the Mobile Phone party. I resisted having one for as long as I could, then, 4 years ago my brother-in-law gave me a secondhand Motorola. It had the 'Bananaman' theme as one of it's ringtones. It only lasted a month-or-so before expiring, but by then I'd realised the advantages of having one. I went out and bought my first new mobile - a Samsung, and last year I replaced it with another Samsung - a J700 (I think, haven't got it in front of me now).
