Don't remember my first cell phone, but I do remember the plan was nationwide $10.00 a month, nights and weekends free starting at 6pm on Friday.

my first phone was the nokia 100, which cost roughly $2000 in 1987 and has a grand total battery life of 40 minutes. Then upgraded to the Motorola StarTAC650 in 1993, then as the old analog system was being phased out, switched to a motorola T721 SIM-based flip-phone, then eventually transitioned to the new LTE network....so needless to say...i've had a few phones in my day.

Nokia 232AU. Still have it in my desk right here, and sometimes use it as a prop at meetings when everyone tables their bling phones.

How the hell do you guys remember your first cell phone?!? I know mine was a flip phone and most likely from Motorola back in the late 90s.

My first mobile telephone was back in 1968 and it fit in the trunk of my car. The telephone company had set up a radio network back then that only worked in my city. I picked up my Motorola brick in 1989.
