    I had to save up many many Coca Cola lables/ring pulls & send off £30 for it.

    I cant remeber the name of the phone, but for the time it wasnt that big and it was pretty slim, tho you had to pull the aerial out lol. I do remeber that the calls were 50 p per min, and texting wasnt around then, and also if you rang someone, you were charged even if they didnt pick up. Glad things have improved somewhat

    What the picture doesn't show is the extra car battery that you needed to use it!

    Oh dear.

    Back in the days, I was renting a flat that had no landline.
    I wasn't going to pay for one, and neither was the landlord.

    So I had to go for a mobile.
    It was weird, and it was such a different world from what we know now.
    Now every other high street shop is a mobile phone emporium and we are deluged with options and tariffs.
    Back then, I think they were sold out the back of Dixons.

    About the only option was Vodafone.
    I remember after signing up with them I found that I had no reception.
    In the middle of Worcester.
    So I phoned (from a payphone) to complain.
    Their stance was 'we don't offer coverage everywhere' and they wouldn't budge.
    So I was trapped in a one year contract with a phone I couldn't use unless I drove to Birmingham.

    How things have changed.

    Anyway:

    Note the complete lack of any kind of screen.
    Note also that if you wanted one that would hold its charge all day, the battery was about three times as big as pictured.

    That looks like one I had think it was a t28 world it was the same design with a flip down mouth piece thing, I still to this day think it had the most accurate voice activation dialing (I guess that must have been around 2000-2002 sometime), it even had tetris on it.

    I don't remember the exact model, but it was a Nokia my parents gave me so that I could keep in touch with them in 1997 having started my military service.
