I had an Ericsson for my first phone, I don't remember the model but it was black and white with three lines for text messages and an antenna. I then got a Sony Ericsson k700i a year later. Then I got a Nokia N80 didn't like that so switched to 5800 used that for a few months before I got my iPhone 4.
My first phone was a Nokia 6150, the last phone I was using before I switched to the iPhone 2G was a Sony Ericsson k800i

Believe it or not, I was using an old-fashioned, pre-paid Tracfone! I didn't really need a phone to do all of the things I need now. Now I couldn't live without them!
This is making me reminiss about the days with tactile keyboards and pre-installed games ;)
I had the mid-range blackberry before my iPhone. Oh how I miss that keypad. Plus the #1 reason to buy a blackberry back in the day... Brick Breaker!
I also miss my first phone. It was one of the old Nokias that had Snake and a few other great 8-bit games built in.
I was using Samsung and now I am just a diehard Apple Fan :)
