My cell phone was a party in my pocket….

Do you remember your first cell phone?  I sure do.  As a young teenager I attended high school about an hour away from where I lived.  Needless to say it was a very long commute for my parents to take me to school before I was able to drive.  My freshman year of high school, I was playing in a tight tennis match against a cross town rival.  To make a long story it was a long battle that came down to the last match.  We ended up winning it and left the school.  My Mom was going to meet me at the high school I attended at six.  I did not get dropped off back at the school by my coach until 8:00.

My mother had no clue where I was and all she could do was wait.  Not many people had a cell phone back then.  The very next weekend we went down to the ATT store and I got my first phone.  It was the Nokia and it was awesome.  You could change the faceplate and pick from several preset ring tones.  It looked a lot like this.

This phone was sick and snake was a great way to pass time in class.  I loved this thing, until everyone started getting smaller ones, that could vibrate, and get custom ring tones.  After my two year contract was done with the original Nokia 5110, I upgraded to the Nokia 3310.  This thing was awesome.  I must have spent twice the cost of the phone modifying it out the best I knew how.

It started out looking like the above picture.  When I was done with this thing, it had a clear front and back face plate along with clear buttons.  I had the custom blue LCD light up battery and the lights that went under buttons in the front.  I also had the antenna that light up.  This phone was truly a party in my pocket…..Ohh yeah the ring tone was Alice DJ better off alone.  This was back in the days of the ring tones that did not sound like songs though.  These ring tones sounded like computerized beeps to form and resemble the song you wanted to play when your mom called.  This phone was truly a party in my pants well my pocket.
