A former British soldier, Dave Mitchelle could win the title of owning the oldest mobile phone as he still uses a Nokia 3310 which he brought almost 17 years ago.
The retired combatant brought his trusty phone in 2000 and claims that it only needs charging once every ten days.
Dave has taken the handset on military tours of Iraq and Afghanistan during his career as a soldier.
He insists the phone has been put through a washing machine, stamped on and submerged in curry sauce but remains in perfect working order.
The 49-year-old said he would be “distraught” if he was forced to give the phone up and is not tempted by a newer model.
