I feel really like the old fogey I am. Very few of those of you who mention time frames seem to keep a phone for over a year. The shortest I have kept a phone is a year and a half. I have used a Nokia 3330 for two years, and a 3610 now for three years or maybe more. I have never used a camera phone. My standalone cameras, whether film or digital, are bulky no doubt, but so much clearer. And I have not yet felt a pressing need for a convenient camera always at hand. I use almost all features all the time of whichever phone I carry. I have even changed worn out batteries of phones, which no one I know has done. So, I guess this thread will not welcome my post.

Started with a Siemens phone ,then a Motorola both of which were company provided .
After that it was Nokia phones (3310,1100,6600,E71,E72) over 5 years till 2010.

Have changed 3 phones in the last one year . The BB 9800 and the BB 9900 both of which I didnt use for more than 4 months each . Got tired of the pathetic quality and the frequent call drops and reboots !

Have the iPhone 4S 32 GB since the last one month .So far so good .

Ahh... The mobiles i've owned.

Samsung C100 ----> Motorola L7 -----> Motorola Rokr Z6 ----> Nokia E63 ----> Samsung Galaxy Ace

Have always been a motorola fan, as they were always mod friendly

Pity the Defy prices dropped just after I bought the Ace
