My 3rd phone, back in 2002 just after it became verizon, god I must've been 17
My first ever phone, was good at the time of launch, FM on phones was almost unheard of. Plus it came with 2 grippy rubber covers. Was a really stylish phone for its time. Decent performance but as poor ergonomics. Its more of a remote control shape than a mobile phone.
Was my first phone. I liked it very much. But modern phones are of course much better. Smaller, color display, mp3 ringtones, better battery performance, no antenna sticking out. The fm radio was cool!
this was my first cellphone, and my worst cellphone. also, wasn't it called the "shark"?
