I was about 12 I think, it was an Orange Motorola one. That was when £10 credit used to last me 3 months, I barely used it! I'm not sure about the whole situation now but when I see a child about 7/8 with a mobile it still makes me look twice. I think perhaps age 10/11 is about the right age now, besides we all coped without them for so long.
10 - Nokia 3210
what a phone
12 - nokia 3310, because it had the original snake, interchangable fascias, the ringtone builder so you find stuff on the internet to have uber cool monotone ones. a damn good phone!
I was 9 years old.
My dad got a free phone with his.
It was a nice motorola.
I dropped it within minutes of stepping out the car.
Eleven, just in time for secondary school. But my nine year old cousin has one, and both his sisters (one aged seven, one aged FIVE) know people in their class at school who have and use a mobile phone.
12. It was a brick Panasonic. Turning 20 next month and I've only had 4 phones including the first one, fairly impressive. I won't count the one I bought today..yet.
Ive still got my first phone, it was too crap to sell on. It looks like an electronic banana.
I was 11, a good old Nokia whatever they were 7 years ago.
But I think it's slightly scary the amount of kids who have mobiles these days. People in my youngest sister's class at school (she's 9) have phones. Luckily my parents have told her she can't have one until she starts secondary school (like me and my other sister). It's not safe to let kids that age have phones IMO, goodness knows what could happen. Sure, they're good for emergencys, but what about the dangers? I don't agree with kids that young having the,
My first mobile was an Ericsson A1018s - a brick. I think I was 14-15 on my 2 week work experience, so had to phone home to get my parents to pick me up lol.
Then I had a Nokia 3310 which I adored and had loads of different facias for.
Primary School time. Probably year 6. It was a 3210.
I was 15...Sony Ericsson K300i for about £40 quid and I still got it, even though the back cover is broken...
I was 7 , had this massive brick motorola thing , but i loved it, when i was 9 i got a nokia 3410, and i still have it now , 6 years later. I still use it and see no point in getting another if this one is still working fine.
Last week when I turned 19. Lol.
