My first mobile phone

We all have phones in our pockets thesedays, I’m typing this into my phone right now. But we all have to start somewhere and my phone as you can see above, was a brick.

It was also splashed with Coca-Cola because it was a free giveaway when you collected 60 ring pulls or tokens. The thing is I wasn’t drinking that much coke back then so I’m not sure who was but either way it was my first phone

The shiny silver panel did look cook but you couldn’t really hide the fact that the phone was chunky. It did calls and it did texts and came with a one2one pay as you go phone sim.

Big box. Big phone.

At the time I didnt know that many people with a phone so it didn’t get used that much and in truth I probably didn’t really need a mobile phone at all.

The best feature was the Coca-Cola ringtone which matched the advertising of the time but typically for a phone of that time it soon got annoying
