update june 2008 - per the pew internet The Internet and Consumer Choice report - i can't believe that only 12% of cell phones are procured online. seems like it should be a lot more than that. 78% in-store and ~10% by other means.

miss love and i just went in together on a cell plan c/o amazon.com.

let the address-book transfers begin! since i have them resurrected to enter numbers into the new phone, here are all of the cell phones i've ever owned. they all still work, albeit the buttons on the nokia 3560 in the middle have stopped working reliably. the sony-ericsson w810i (right) is a linux-friendly phone, 2-megapixel camera, and mp3 player all in one. with a 4gb pro duo memory stick, i can go jogging without my minidisc player :-), and even bring home a few photos every now and then! rachel opted for a pink razr phone.

SAR ratings for these phones:
Nokia 6185: 1.07 watts/kg digital, 1.53 watts/kg analog
Nokia 3560 0.85 watts/kg digital, 1.24 watts/kg analog
SE W800i 0.57 watts/kg digital, no analog

jsf.online: That is a shorter cell phone evolution than I expected. They keep shrinking, and no flips in evidence.

I can not even recall all that I've had, or the ways in which they have been destroyed - 'though the destruction usually involved a bike ride.
fresh cellar: I love my w810i. Are you saying that Linux can be loaded on it?
sean dreilinger: hi Minister K - no, i don't know about running linux on the phone as an OS. what i mean is that i can plug the sony-ericsson w810i into my linux box using a usb cable, and linux sees it as a compatible usb mass-storage device. from there i can exchange .mp3 files, photo files, etc. very conveniently.

i did flash the phone once also, to restore the sony original firmware instead of the cingular-impaired firmware. for this operation, i had to connect the phone to a ms-windows computer.

jessieb913: I'm making an educational electronics recycling video to promote the importance of proper ewaste disposal. I would like to use pictures of old and new cell phones, mp3 players and computers (lap top or desk top).

If you wouldn't mind donating and posting a pic of your old electronic equipment that I could use, I would greatly appreciate it!
Thank you!!

sean dreilinger: in the summer of 2003, this nokia 3560 replaced the big brick, whose battery contacts were shot.
