I do love these trips down memory lane 😁 Looking back, I haven't added too many new devices since the last time we took this trip. My first phone was an Ericsson CF788. I stuck with that manufacturer for a while with the Ericsson T39m and subsequent SonyEricsson Z600.
Unfortunately, Ericsson stopped making mobile devices and I was forced to look elsewhere. Anyone who knows me knows that I love my flip-phones. To my dismay, it was around the time many manufacturers were moving away from flip or slide phones in favour full screen devices without dedicated number pads. My search lead me overseas. Samsung was one of the few manufacturers still making them. So my next devices were Samsung Z510, Samsung G400, Samsung B9120.
The problem with sourcing my devices from overseas was that they tended to not be fully compatible with North American bands and frequencies. At the time, I knew nothing about bands or frequencies. In my naivety, I opted for form-factor over function. Incidentally, that was the beginning of my participation in these forums. I grew tired of having to drive across town just to download a MMS. Sadly, I needed give up on my beloved form-factor for a device fully compatible for use here. Enter the Samsung S5 and my current phone: Samsung S10+.
For images of what the phones looked like (except the S10+), you can refer here.
I was excited with the news Samsung was developing new folding devices. However, without a dedicated number pad, it's just not a flip-phone 😓
Happy 11th Birthday Fido Community!! 🎂

That took a while with the images... feel free to add some but it's not necessary.
