I remember I once dropped it and it stopped functioning completely. I was so mad I purposefully dropped it again but harder, and it worked perfectly again. Lasted me another 3 years after that time.

This bad boy. The phone was tiny for the standard at the moment. It had a pretty high resolution screen, and the blueish back light was cool as fuck.

I abused the hell out of it, it was unbreakable. Battery lasted for days, I must have sent tens of thousands of text messages with this phone to half the girls at my high school back when.

Yeah, I remember the days when text messaging was the best thing. Feeling like a fucking secret agent, receiving messages from friends, in your pocket, without anyone knowing. I could type out a message without even looking at the phone. In class, I could have the phone under the table and tap out a message without looking at it.

So many exciting news, turns and twists, and plans all came through on a monochrome dot matrix display in one hundred and sixty characters. My childhood, all of my friends, through corded landlines phones and text messages on mobile phones. What an exiting time it was to be a teenager. Free of all the fear and preconceptions about all the Shit kids have to deal with today. Just being young, and curious, wondering what's out there, waiting to explore. Free from a paranoid fear of rape and murder and creeps and stalkers and strangers. It was a different time. A much more innocent time.

The days of instant messaging, and online forums, and dial up Internet. When you started icq, and saw some of your friends were online, you actually wanted to talk with someone. Not like today. Today, everyone is online all the time, and nobody really wants to talk anymore. You now need a reason or an excuse to chat with someone. You no longer do it because it was exciting to do so.

>those last words about talking online
right now i'm looking at my old ass communicator program where i have three contacts that i'm still talking with sometimes.
one of them just sends me funny pictures, never really talk about anything anymore;
second one just complains about his hard life, can't have a fun conversation anymore;
third one is sometimes capable of fun talk, but he's rarely there.

even few years ago we were still having long, fun conversations about whatever we can
of course i have facebook, but i don't have any idea who could keep conversation about random things
and i'm not antisocial, i could talk about anything. it's probably just how it works when people are finishing college, getting jobs and shit
i don't even have anybody to talk with about it, so i'm posting it on imageboard where nobody cares

congratulations
i'm depressed now

Texting friends for no apparent reason, sharing shitty mp3's via bluetooth and taking godly phone pictures.

And it also had LED's on the side, that could light different colors, depending on what you were doing or who called you. It also had live backgrounds, and it could say a neat melody every time you opened it up.

I still actually use this phone for calling and sms. I've had it since late 2010. The battery still holds charge for at least a week. Even has a 4gb sd card. Only problem with SE were their proprietary charging ports and lack of a headphone plug.
>every goddamn sms I ever got on it is still on that phone

I use a smartphone as well with a data only SIM.
Not much fun anymore.

The K800i, the firmware/OS on it was solid. Had many different carriers models (unlocked) and although the buttons and menu options were subtly different, the thing always performed brilliantly.

I recently (2 weeks ago) abandoned the robust, well thought out and bloat free world of the dumbphone and brought a moto g. Replacing pic related. The elm just couldn't keep up with what i needed.
