9 intense struggles only those who owned a Nokia 3210 will understand

THE NOKIA 3210 is old enough to be sitting its Leaving Cert right now. First introduced in 1999, it was pretty much a staple in every noughties teen’s life.

1. Snake was played pretty much every waking hour, but could NEVER be completed


2. You changed phone covers as much as you changed outfits

3. It was basically indestructible, so wrecking it to get a new phone was out of the question

4. You were sick of getting this message

6. So you downloaded loads, which cost an arm and a leg
