  • Bought it in 1998 and still in use today with the original battery! Can any smartphone compete with such a longevity?

  • This was my first phone ever back in ...1990 something, loved it, it was wicked cose you could answer the call by sliding the earphone up and the antena was cool too plus it was one of the first phones that vibrated. I remember it, loved it at it's time, still a sony ( ericsson) fan 16 years later.

  • Agreed.

  • we must dont make fun our past if we do the future will make us fun

  • yes it was a brill phone had one myself

  • 16 years from now our children will make fun of our galaxy s4.

  • lol, a video call? are u high?

  • sarcasm in this comment is too damn high

  • Hi guys! Please help me how to make video call with this cool device. Thanks in advance.:D

  • i was also a proud owner of this phone in 1997. bought it for usd 880 (Rs 40000/-).During that time whenever i was speaking over this phone at least 100 odd eyes would look at me in awe! amazing thrill,still fresh in my memory.

  • My first cellphone, have it at 1997. Very descent phone, to make or answer a call you must slide up the speakerphone, antenna is retractable, rugged..drop it several times but no major damage. Too bad I sell it two years later for Nokia 5110

  • I had buy one like this ( I still have it in perfect working condition with the official SONY car kit hands free !) . I bought it exactly when it came out in Germany (Winter 1995).I had first buy the first SONY gsm mobile with the code CMD-100 . I have also this in working condition . You see these years a SONY was a ...SONY !

  • This was my first phone, I have a wave 2....that time we coul'd not even imagine these new smart phones...Technology is tooooooo fast...

  • Yes I have that phone but my father makes collection of old phones so I cant give you :( sorry

  • does anyone still have this phone? i want to have this one...because it's a lot of memories for me, it's my first celullar phone...i'm very glad if someone give me for free...thanks before

  • are you still use that phone right now?

  • I get CM-DX1000 (First Release, Battery 1200mAh) in 7/1996 when GSM lauched in Czech Republic.

  • One of my best phones I ever had, when it comes down to reliability, stability, robustness and ease of use. Standby- and talktime was impressive at that time... I bought in in 10/96, so it must have been released prior to 1997.

  • I too got this phone in Nov 96 when it was a new release in the UK. It was super and I enjoyed it.

  • The best phone ever :-) but it wasn't introduced in 1997 because I had already in august 2006 when gsm was beginning in the Netherlands

  • this phone was announced in 1997,how is it possible to you to have this phone three years earlier than it was produced. please do not think that people are fool.

  • i had this lovely set way back in 1994, superb value at the time. still have the set with me.

  • I am also a very content user of this CM-DX-1000 in the Netherlands.

  • Interesting...Great for fending off a would-be robber....

  • looks like a brick though!

  • This is mine first used cellular phone! They made 23.February and 13.November 1996 (I've got two). I think it's oldest in my area! I'm proud on them. Everything do perfectly, battery last 2 days, charging for 3-4 hours, clear voice,...! Not for sales!!! Good old cm-dx 1000!
