What was the first phone that you ever used?

A Nokia? BlackBerry? Motorola?

Phones we grew up with were so indestructible that you'd rarely hear issues of cracked screens or low batteries. In fact, your Nokia back then could probably go for days without being charged.

A Twitter thread by @XavierNaxa went viral recently with Malaysians sharing photos of old phones that they used growing up.

He recalled how during the 2000s, a SIM card would've cost you a whopping RM238, while it only costs around RM10 today. (You also know you're old when you understand the pain of having to shorten words just to fit all the characters into one text.)

In his tweet, he shared that his first phone was the Nokia 8250, which led Malaysians to reminisce about phones that they used to have. Here's a look at some of them:

1. Ericsson GH 688

2. Alcatel OT Easy
