In the army on 2004 I was the proud owner of three army shoes..2 to wear 1 to keep in my pocket.
But this army shoe was special as it had FM radio..and men did I use it on 2004 final of the Euro (me being Greek). and for that event though I had it just for one month I loved it..
my first phone too... my dad bought it for me because it had a fm radio. man, have i listened to that... =) (mp3-players didn't exist yet, or maybe, they were still way too expensive)
i liked it, though when compared to the nokia menu it was quite complicated. and the batteries... after a year or so they went dead after like 3 hours.
nonetheless, loved the phone!
:-) First phone for me too the FM radio was great but he had clock and other stuff that aren`t mentioned
My God, it's amazing that a lot of people had this one as their first phone... Me too... wow.. Got it on August 2002... it has blue rubber cover.. very nice.. I regret I had sold it.. I wish I could have it back
What a chance! I have been missing such commentary chances about Motorola V2288.Ofcourse this was my first phone that i live to remember in my everyday life.It was magnifique!It was one of the first phones with wap & FM radio before any other phones.Its stereo sound are still unbeatable by any other phone!
But why don't you make one more of such type without aerial but it should have a coloured screen;FM&Short Wave radio, mp3, camera, internet, memory card, blue tooth, wider screen, should have usb cable to connect to computer,quick access features,it should neither be slide or flap.And many more features.Please don't forget to maintain stereo sound features!!!!This should be a special phone! No matter how expensive it will be i will buy.
This was my first phone, too. I loved it. It had great functions for those years wap browser, fm radio. But after 4 years of use(2001-2005) the battery life time was ... 2 hours. I've miss it now. V2288 rulz
this was my first phone and i really was inlove with it so much.i remember it had faces that you can change it with that were plastic..
Oh My First & Last Phone. im from Bandung, I Use that Phone from 2000 until noe 2007 is so strong enough.Coool Phone but yeah no clock.:-)
Wow this was my first phone, it bring me back to another happy times, yea, really really a good phone for that time :´(
I have been with my moto since february 2001.I love this phone.I really tried to resist buying another one till technology hit me in the face and i had to grudgingly go to shop for an LG. but the moto spirit keeps nagging me so am thinking of buying a moto V360.fortunately here in Kenya you can have many cell lines, well, depending on your finances.
I still use my v2288 for my second cell line. I like it coz of the loud ringer tone. i guess there is no other phone with such a ringtone that no matter the level of noise in your sorroundings, you will definitely hear your phone ring.i guess that covers for the absence if vbration.
One feature i like about the v2288 is the quick access menu. with two button presses you can make your phone silent especially in meetings or something.
I guess my first love phone was the best. Thanks moto!!
:) I'm reading your comments and I'm suprisied how many of us has this mob as first one! :)
It was very heavy and really robust but I've enjoy it!
Worst 'feature' was not haveing built-in clock so I didn't know when somebody calls if I had missed calls. Now, it is funny to remember all troubles because of that! :))
But first one could never be forgot!
my first phone too! sadly got stolen in a house burglary, and i've been searching for its make for over a year! i plan on buying another now, just for the memories. i went from this to a motorola t191, then nokia 3510i, siemens sf65, sony ericsson w750i and now onto my lg chocolate white. bit of a technology shift!
Nostalgic memories, this phone gave me. I still have mine sitting in my drawer. Pity i left the batteries in it for too long and now it won't turn on lol.
My 1st phone this was, loved the funky covers. Very robust too! Dropped it down a long flight of stairs, and it landed facefirst, and it STILL worked!
Pity it didn't have a clock though LOL. Might try find new batteries for it, and use it one day, just to turn heads on the street lol.
This was my first phone (back in highschool - 1999 ish i think) and I absolutely loved it, the radio, the fun covers - won't hear a bad word against it! memories! of course it is huge and feature-less by todays standards...but still, good times good times!
this was my first phone ever. i enjoyed using it because of the fm radio feature, even though it's the only feature. i'm not using it now because the lcd monitor got destroyed. now i'm trying to fix it so i can use it again.
this phone was great! if available in the future as a 'comeback special' in color with built in camera, it would be a hit!
This phone only lasted me a little under a year. Crap batteries and features. Only got it as it was the only pre paid available at the time that had WAP! Oh my have times changed. The radio was a novel feature.
Nice phone, strong radio but its problem is it has no clock, alarm or games and makes it a bit inconvenient. I dont recommned it for first time users, too complicated. Battery life is really bad.
ive donated mine to chrity a month ago.it served me well,not one problem,that tower of hannoi was hard.the batteries wre completly spent,i suppose the 3 batteries are now the lithium ion .been thru many phones the siemens s45 best.now using moto e1000 and nokia 6630 + orange c500.just wish this e1000 had an extended battery ?
