    I'm just checking to see who is still sporting an old phone? As in still using it as a phone not just on Wi-Fi or as a music player.

    I was digging out my old phones last week!

    Some chargers are missing, but I have working:

    Sony Ericsson K800i, W890i

    Siemens C45

    Motorola V600.

    It's cool transferring old tones & pics from them!

    I had a V3 (got stolen :mad:).

    I wish they'd update these old classics with at least 3g & 5mp camera!

    My N95 8GB was still working last time I tried. I've used it for navigation when driving abroad as it has a (now very dated) version of Route 66 on it which has in-built maps and on-board route calculation so doesn't use any data.

    My friend was, up until very recently, using my old Moto Rizr Z6tv. That thing is a tank and will probably never die. One of the better phones I had back in the day.

    The only reason she stopped using it is because she wanted a better camera/easier texting/touch screen phone so she got off my family plan (yay!) and went with a TracFone LG840G.

    there's a few people in Howard Forums with active StarTACs...in 2009 I still had an active Nokia 5185i, but with a horrible battery life since it was so dated.

    I'm using a BlackBerry Tour that is 4 years old. It was released almost 5 years ago.
