LG VX3200



I could be surrounded by people on VZW, all talking on their cells, no one dropping calls and I couldn't even dial a number because I had no service. Had it replaced several times, given several excuses why that particular unit had issues, and had several unhappy years of cell phone usage (I didn't know that I could buy a new phone in the middle of my contract, I thought I had to wait until my contract was up to change phones )

I got better reception with my Nokia 5130, although, I was on Cingular at the time...but still!

A pink Princess dial phone I got for my grandmother years ago from AT&T. The bad part was that I got it back when she died and I was too cheap to not use it and it had a very useful amplified headset. So it became a source of amusing and not so amusing comments until I got a push button phone from AT&T just before they were broke up. You all remember AT&T, the phone company?

worst phone i ever had was the Motorola SC-3160. It was a dual-band first generation digital phone for Bell Atlantic Mobile (BAM). it had amazing battery life and vibrate (way ahead of its time), but the quality was so shotty that I went through 4 of them in the first year...and when the 4th one broke I demanded that I be given a Nokia 5180. The Nokia 5180 was by far the best phone I have ever owned. Great lithium-ion battery life, great ringtones, very durable, and you could buy face-plates by the dozen on ebay. My 5180 eventually had a problem, but by that time BAM became Verizon, and I was given a Nokia 5185i. The 5185i was basically the same as the 5180, except that it added a retractable antenna and 2-way text messaging.

Motorola SC-3160 (note the flip-style keypad cover! such a late 90's feature ) :

Nokia 5185i (note regular antenna stub instead has a little tip towards the end...that is the retractable antenna...but the rest of the phone remained virtually the same but with the addition of 2-way SMS:

Not sure of the brand name or model number but it had a giant box that fit in your trunk and then a massive phone unit that was mounted on the transmission hump with a rotary dial phone. It took the tech all day to install it.

Cost a fortune. Got service in larger cities but not in too many rural areas. Believe I had it in the early '70s.

Upgraded it to a Motorola Bag Phone.

My friend had a phone like this. Another friend accidentally ripped it in half when she tried to grab it from the owner. The "stump" (bottom half) could still make calls. It was nuts.

Any of the Nokia phones I had from 1999-2001 on Cingular, and the Motorola Bag Phone before that.

Motorola RAZR on Sprint. Poor reception, user unfriendly, lousy software.

In a previous job , I got to Friendly User Trial handsets. Carried some real stinkers back then. I don't remember specfic models, but Siemens and HP in general come to mind as not so great.

I liked my sony ericssons

however, the Motorola RAZR was a piece of junk. it was soooooooo awful, and people could never hear me! there was also te Q-tek which worked on WM which just didn't cut it for me. those two had to be the worst phones i owned.

The Wing had too slow of a processor... it always seemed to draaaaag along...



and the iPhone...

Tough tough choice...

nonetheless... FTW!!

worst phone i ever had was the one bolted to the floor of our old lincoln back in the early 80's, with a giant box of some kind bolted in the trunk. Had big push buttons and a key and a big receiver handset just like a payphone.
