Time To Get Nostalgic: 17 Old Cellphones Commercials

Even though I love my iPhone and I’m very grateful for the touchscreen and the amazing applications that I can use on it, I’m missing the thrill of seeing and discovering new phones, just like in the ’90s and 2000s.  I remember that back then, when a new Nokia model was put on the market, it was a joy seeing their commercials. When the Nokia 3310 hit the market it was priced at $400 where I lived, which was a small fortune. I was reading all the magazines which had reviews with it so I knew everything about that model.  Oh and I’m a little nostalgic about the battery…man how much they could last back in the good old days.

What I love about these commercials is the description of their functionalities, here’s an example: convenient navigation and ergonomic keyboard. Isn’t it hilarious?

Anyway, without any other introduction, here are 17 tv ads for some of the most popular cellphones from the ’90s and the 2000s.
