I have owned something in the region of 8-10 mobile phones since my first in 1992 or thereabouts. The worse was without a doubt the Siemens C35i - which came free with an O2 package.

The screen cracked very easily - it had to be replaced soon after I first got it - and it promptly cracked again. I ended up having to guess who I was calling... The battery life was terrible and the keys were of very poor quality - the selection keys in particular were very erratic.

I still got it if anyone fancies a swap

Cheers,
Charles

Hi, yeah I would sell it on eBay but they don't have a category for scrap plastic!!

It will probably end up going to my daughter's school - they're about to start a old mobile phone collection scheme to raise money for their funds - not that I can quite understand how they can make money from these schemes

Cheers,
Charles

I have to say, I've never owned one myself but a few of my friends/family have had Motorola's in the past and none of them have been any good.

Not to mention the fact that to me they all look very ugly.

Motorolla! When ever I would talk to someone, I would sound like a was talking out of a tin can! I also had a Nokia older model and I would miss calls, because I couldn't hear it ring!

The worst I've probably had is the one I have right now - the SPV C500. It looks beautiful and it does an awful lot but with it being a Windows phone, it often messes up and switches itself off/on randomly and quite often crashes. It did this to me once and deleted all my information off the phone, I was not happy.

My dad tried to convince me to have a bulky old phone that weighed in at about 10 pounds as my first phone. I wouldn't budge.

Probally my old Motorolla 2300, it was a piece of junk, bulky, and it never seemed to work.

I originally got a cell phone to stay in touch while I was out of state doing a summer internship, and then when I went back to college. However, I didn't check the coverage carefully enough. I arrived in the town where my internship was, and had no reception. Went the majority of that summer with an expensive piece of plastic sitting in a drawer. I returned to my home town and enjoyed the glory of being in touch with all my friends for about a month. Then, I went back to my college, and discovered I had no reception there either. It was nearly a year before I could use my cell phone regularly.

I had an NEC something or other and it was so difficult to use. I have stayed away from NEC phones ever since.
