it wouldn't of hurt you to post them here,
the list of phones i've used is longer than my arm.
This topic could become a discussion about phones people have used and their favourites,
I was talking to someone the other day still using an 025 Nokia which could be regarded as one of the classics.

  • Phillip Isis - simple but easy to use. Ironically it got stolen from the car but they didn't take my wallet.

  • Nokia 5120 - Replacement to the Isis, introduced text messaging, service was relatively great - only had to ring up customer service once.


  • Switched over mainly because the Nokia started to break down and had problems with a landline/ certain ISP.

  • Alcatel 710 - first GSM handset. Had GPRS/MMS. Was ok though the interface was fairly awful. Broke down and was replaced after about 3 months.

  • SE T610 - had this for a short time ~1 month. This was really a flatmates phone. Had a good interface compared to the Alcatel.

  • SE z600 - had that for a year. Again, quite a nice phone, biggest annoyance was the lack of sockets support which made connecting to IRC or MSN quite difficult, limited memory, and lack of choice for text alerts.

  • Sony Ericsson P910 - brought it in China. Kinda regret doing so now as it was an expensive handset at the time (was probably better off with cheaper handset), however was/is a great handset. Probably will keep using this handset as its expensive and I have more important things to save up for.

    Weren't those the ones with the dodgy contracts where they had those hidden fees?

    Yeah, I got it when I was 18, transient and unwilling to pay my bill..... It got cut off one day and that was the last I ever heard about it. Never got chased for payment of the account or anything.
