11 classic mobile phones we all had in the 2000s

Nowadays, you can literally do anything on your phone.

Order a takeaway? No problem. Learn a new language? Sí. Track your finances? Easy.

But how many of us remember using a 'brick phone' or getting excited when the qwerty keyboard was released?

While most of us will probably have forgotten the gadgets of the past, we decided to take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of the most iconic phones of the 2000s.

Zilch - No Credit Check Finance

Motorola Timeport

This candy bar phone was a popular choice in the early 2000s due to being the first phone that worked in both Europe and the USA.

While it wasn't pretty to look at, it was all about functionality and had a battery life that puts modern phones to shame.

Nokia 3310

The Nokia 3310

Potentially the most recognisable phone of the 2000s is the Nokia 3310.

Released on September 1, 2000, the Nokia phone featured a 'chat' function, which meant users could send longer text messages than normal.

But the 3310 became popular due to its durability.

It could be dropped from a severe height or thrown at a brick wall and it would still work like normal.

Motorola Razr V3

Motorola mobile phone

Up there with being one of the coolest phones in the world, the Motorola Razr was more of a fashion accessory than a mobile phone.

The V3 was the first phone released in the series and was introduced in July 2004.

The chromatic keyboard, dual screen and range of colour choices saw Motorola sell over 50 million handsets between 2004 and 2006.

Sony Ericsson T610

Sony Ericsson T610

A true upgrade from the Nokia phones, was this Sony Ericsson T610, first released in 2003.

It was one of the first mass-market mobile phones to include a built-in digital camera, Bluetooth and colour screen.

But the true beauty of this phone was the joystick navigation.

Blackberry Pearl

Blackberry 8100 mobile phone

You weren't really a proper businessperson if you didn't own a Blackberry Pearl.

This 2006 cell featured a qwerty keyboard, 1.3MP camera and a Word, Excel, Powerpoint and PDF viewer.

But the one thing Blackberry did better than any other phone, was email.

Their Enterprise Server option meant discerning business people could access their work accounts at the touch of a button.

LG Cookie KP500

This modern but affordable touch screen cell was on the Christmas list of every teenager in 2008.

Originally released in four colours: black, brown, silver and gold; this phone really took off when LG released the baby pink version.

And who can forget the matching stylus that slotted into the side of the phone.

Apple iPhone 3G

A game-changer in the world of mobile phones was Apple's iPhone 3G.

Released in 2008, the iPhone 3G was a beautiful, sleek mobile full of customisation options.

It also had an app store, where 500 different applications could be downloaded.

Even today, the design of modern smartphones is heavily influenced by the iPhone 3G.
