That Nokia 6150 wasn't my first Nokia -- I had a Nokia 101 back in 1995/1996 with Optus when it started selling digital mobile phones. Vivian actually bought the phone from Orange in Hong Kong, and I then bought a Optus SIM to use it here in Australia. With its built in infrared port, I could actually use my Psion 5mx to talk to it to send SMS -- how cool was that?!
