The first mobile phone I ever owned was a Nokia 1611.
I loved it. It did have a display, so it was possible to compose text messages and see incoming phone numbers, but that was about it. Still, it had enough features to become a daily companion.
When my history teacher, Sören Lokrantz, caught me texting during his class, he taught me a valuable life lesson. He asked me:
Teacher: “Do you know what made slaves into slaves?”
Me: “Eh …?”
Teacher: “The fact that they were permanently available.”
Ever since that day, I try to be mindful of how I adapt to new technologies. One example of this ought to be my unorthodox phone policy.
Anyway, here’s a list of all the mobile phones I’ve had:
- Nokia 1611
- Ericsson GH 337
- Nokia 7110
- Sony Ericsson K800i
- Sony Ericsson P1
- iPhone 3G
- iPhone 4S
- iPhone 5S
- iPhone 7 Plus
