What does your cellphone history say about you? Not the disgusting details of your calls, pix and texts, the devices themselves. News last week that Vodafone is probably being sold has sent some of us wandering down mobile memory lane.

A decade ago most of us moved to iPhones and the like. But before that our devices changed wildly from year to year. Different brands, shapes, sizes and functions. The phones in our pockets defined our lives in the same way music, fashion, pets, sexual partners and diseases have.

So here are four mobile phones I have loved in


The Alcatel One Touch Easy

The NOKIA 3210

The Nokia N-Gage

The Motorola RAZR V3 ultra-slim flip phone

The Blackberry curve 8300
