and the ones that weren't featured in the films but were marketed as "Matrix Phones" in commercials like the Nokia 7110 because it had the spring that the 8110 was shown to have in the first movie but the actual phones do not have the spring. They marketed it a lot in Japan after the movie and people wanted spring phones.

Then there is the Samsung SGH V-200 which had commercials featuring clips from Reloaded which had a camera that you could move and stuff and take pictures from different angles.

In terms of prices

1) Samsung SPH-N270 ($1000) minimum usually have phone trying to find one of these since they made only a few thousand in the whole world and every Matrix collector wants them. The phones are the coolest thing ever.

2) Nokia 8110 ($200) the phones when in good condition and working battery and stuff yes a phone from the mid late 90s goes for that price now and its not really that special unless you like the iconic look.

3) Nokia 7110 ($100) you can get it for less without a good battery or original box and stuff.

4) Samsung SGH V-200 ($80) You can get it quite cheap with working battery and stuff.

Then there are some other Matrix phones and stuff but these are the main ones mostly.

Here is a video of the Samsung Matrix collaboration event in London

So do you have any of them? Any plans to get one?
If you could pick one up would you?

I wonder - do any of those even work on current cell tower infrastructure?

lmao, it couldn't even send or receive text messages. Lack of MP3 support for 2003 is no surprise, but no texting... holy crap....

I've always thought the Reloaded phone was overpriced, but I do still want one of the banana phones from the first film.

Its overpriced but it is pretty cool looking I miss when phones looked cool and different now they all look the same.
