What phone started your love afair with PPCs?

I was just thinking how far our phones have come as the TP2 is virtually a laptop in the palm. Then I became curious as to how we all ended up here. I got my first cell phone , a Samsung flip something about 9 years ago. I was always intrigued with how huge the screen was compared to other cells at the time. I was equallyu impressed with Sprints vision and the fact that I could serve the Web at work while everyone else was bored to death. I went on to buy a few more flips until I innocently enough ran into the phone that started it all for me: the Samsung I500. I bought one in mint condition off of ebay for $100 and was amazed at what the phone could do. I actually had no idea what I was buying until I got it and started to read the manual and paly around. I remember showing the phone off to eeryone I knew proclaiming that I pratically had a small computer in my hand.

The real love affair started with the 6700. I remember wanting one really bad but could n't afford the $500 cost - no upgrade eligibility. I talked to about 6 reps who told me nothing could be done to get me the phone at an upgrade price. I had a best friend who always told me if the first ten people say no keep asking until someone say yes so I said what the heck. The seventh person, a supervisor asked me "is that all you need Mr Evans, the phone will be shipped out the first thing tomorrow". I couldn't believe it and could wait until I got it. I still had no clue what I was in for. After playing with it for a few minutes, i could not believe how far technology had come. This blew the Palm out the water. Needless to say we all know how much further we have progressed yet. People call me gadget man but I just like knowing that I have a device in my hand that can do almost anything. BTW, as soon as my wife called to confirm (after my ten calls earlier)that the TP2 had arrived I locked my computer screen and bolted out the building driving 45 minutes home.... lol Anyone else care to share their stories?

I can tell you this, few years from now when you look at the TP2 you would ask yourself was this phone ever this big?

Re: What phone started your love afair with PPCs?

I started with a Palm Treo 750. I was kinda surprised at its abilities even though it was old. I started playing around with it and got hooked. The only problem was it had a square screen so there werent many apps. I found out what Hard SPL was through that phone. I basically used it to test different things before I got my TP2.

Re: What phone started your love afair with PPCs?

Ive had a 6700, 6800, 6900, diamond, tp, and now the best phone I've ever owned the tp2. I cannot wait to get a custom rom on this thing. I can't believe how far the looks and the tech has come on these phones.

I remember seeing the IPAQs back in the day and drooling. Money was limited back then though so I couldnt afford one. I am not rich or even close, i can pay my bills, but I would drop 600 or 700 in a heartbeat for the right phone. Its all about what makes you happy and adds quality or even percieved quality to your life.

Sorry about that but it ended up in the TP2 forum becauase that what I have right now and this is where I live. I am sure that the mods wont hesistate to move to the correct place once they deem it expedient.
