Panasonic EB-G350 with the extended battery. Bought in 1994 with my summer job money. I was 16 at the time and one of the first kids in school with one. In fact BITD the general consensus over here was that only businessmen would ever buy cellphones.

I paid 8500 BEF for it, which translates to around £ 180.

John, is that Nokia the 'Matrix' phone?


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


And wasn't the one used in The Matrix kinda mocked up, too - the whole press a button and the lower bit snaps out, wasn't ever released on a normal, sold-to-the-public Nokia, was it?

Got an iPhone 5s yesterday.

Faintly ridiculous looking at this thread what amused and impressed us just a few years ago compared to now.

BT Cellnet, they became O2.

It's starting to come back to me now. The credit balance was stored on the phone rather than at the phone company as you would expect. There was a modification you could have done that would reset the credit to £10 when you switched the phone off and switched it on again.

Motorola 2900 bag phone - I even had the hands free attachment for the car which consisted of a long wire with a microphone attached to the end.
