Though Nokia phones have increasingly come to lose its popularity, owing to the tough competition it now faces from the Apple products and Android smartphones, there was a time when everyone proudly wielded a Nokia cellphone in his hand.
It was not just a phone, it provided a sense of security to the person. Why, you might ask. Because, handsets manufactured by the brand had a reputation of being invincible. Even today, jokes about how throwing a Nokia phone will not do it any harm, but rather break the floor into pieces, continue to rule the Internet.
But now it seems, not only the phones are strong enough to create comet-like cavities on the earth’s surface, it can even stop bullets! You heard us!
Peter Skillman, Microsoft’s General Manager of Core UX for Windows Desktop, Tablet and Phone, recently tweeted about how a Nokia phone saved the life of a man in Afghanistan by stopping a bullet.
Though it is not clear whose life the phone saved, after Skillman’s post, many people on Twitter responded with similar tweets about the ‘indestructible’ Nokia phones. Skillman on October 5 this year, tweeted: “A Nokia phone I worked on a few years ago saved the life of a man in Afghanistan last week. The embedded bullet….”

The photo he tweeted in the post shows what seems like an actual bullet pierced into the Nokia phone! Within no time that Skillman tweeted this out, there were others on Twitter emphasising how absolutely handy the phone can be, and it was hilarious!

The fame of the Nokia phone and its feature of being immortal is so well-known that there is even a Facebook page that tells how legit strong the phone actually is.
Here are some of the hilarious Nokia memes, which now that we think about it, could actually be true.
The Lumia 520 was dubbed “bulletproof” after it apparently saved the life of a Brazilian police officer. Though Skillman who said the information was passed on to him by a friend, was unable to confirm the source of the news, nothing stop the news from becoming one of the top trends on the Internet!
