Hey, ditto!

I'd forgotten about my T28, and I loved that phone! 8)

The Motorola flip-phones with the extendable antennas were/are the best for low levels of radiation when held next to your skull (can't remember the terminology??)...

...I had to Google it :oops:

SAR levels; here is the bang up to date chart...

The attachment Philfone.jpg is no longer available

Was a novelty being able to text people , novelty didn't last long though . Just became annoying sending/receiving messages all the time and getting used to text language . And it still is to this day ! :evil:

one of those then this. even cooler!


That was my first phone. It came with a smaller stubby antenna which I used most of the time that gave a slightly worse reception. Lasted a heady 9 hours on standby and had 9 number programmable memory! Didn't really use it as it was on an arse rapingly expensive vodafone contract.

Fine first mobile, had one of these (or a very similar motorola) back in the day. One of my parents still has the number it came with.

Second was the Ericsson t28

Many a happy hour was spent playing solitaire at work on this.

Fave old one I had was a nokia 8810 or 8850. Was't even mine, lent it off a friend for a few months after my own broke mid contract.

Flip FTW, did seem super high tech for 2000!

Google says it wasn't the matrix phone sadly. The one I had was a dressed up 8210, the matrix one looked more curved >
