Phones Thu, Sep 25, 2008
Motorola T720 (Verizon)
Date Purchased:  June, 2003
Price Paid:  $150
Current Status:  Sold on eBay for $40

This was my first cell phone and a major step in my level of commitment with Wendy, since we started a 2-year family plan when we each got one of these phones.  The price was pretty steep, especially considering the phone didn't do much other than voice calls. 

Samsung SCH A530 (Verizon)
Date Purchased:  March, 2005
Price Paid:  $0
Current Status:  Sold on eBay for $75

I got this phone from a friend for free.  Wendy's phone broke, so I gave her mine and got this one.  I only used it for a few months because it was nearing the end of my contract.  It was an incredibly small phone that worked well. 

Palm Treo 650 (Cingular)
Date Purchased:  June, 2005
Price Paid:  $370
Current Status:  Sold on eBay for $110

This was my first PDA phone, and it was a good choice.  It was also my first experience with a different network, and it was largely positive.  I didn't use the data network until the last few months of my contract, but it really opened my eyes to the possibilities of cell technology. 

Palm Treo 700wx (Sprint)
Date Purchased:  June, 2007
Price Paid:  $310
Current Status:  Sitting in a closet

The experience of switching to Sprint was one I'd like to forget.  The phone, however, is pretty good.  Similar to the Treo 650, but with Windows Mobile instead of a Palm operating system. 

Palm Pre
Date Purchased:  June, 2009
Price Paid:  $200
Current Status:  Sitting in a closet

I was fortunate enough to have my contract up for renewal right when this phone came out, so I jumped on the bandwagon.  It has a bunch of cool features and is fun to play with, so I'm pleased.
