Ericsson GF768 in yellow.
Loved it to bits. Everyone else had boring black Nokias/Sonys.
And this was before the days of removable covers.

Replaced with another Eric T28 (see above). Totally cool phone at the time, one of the first with Bluetooth and of all the phones since the only one with decent voice-dialling !

Just been searching for my first work phone. One of these. Had it wired into the car as well as a battery as it was crap!

It made swapping filthy messages with a lady somewhat trying.

Early 90s I had a Mercury 121. They only worked within the M25 and then expanded to work in Birmingham but nowhere in between.
