    Question Cell Phone Question?

    I have two old working cell phones, Uniden & Nextel, & want to know any ideas on how I put can them to work, what are they useful for? (other than a doorjam or a prop) &/or any websites to reffer to?

    You might be able to give them to a charity or something. A woman's shelter in my area used to take them to use for battered women and counselors.

    You could verify the existence of gravity in your area by dropping them off a 10th story balcony??? Fire them from a potato gun???

    what kind of phones are they? model#, etc...

    u can always google them. i found a pretty cool site for my phone where i can get in and play with the coding and such.. as well as a few cord hacks (like USB changed to recharge while plugged into puter).
    just like water off a duck\'s back... I AM HERE.

    for CMOS help, check out my CMOS tut?

    What to do with old phones

    Well we use them to train people in Aikido - they are an excellent weapon for self defence.....that would give you a benefit.

    Unfortunatly, the only thing I've acomplished is that I've been able to turn an old floppy drive to a tissue dispenser, I don't think old cell phones have any real usable parts.

    Here's a link for donations like moose was saying. .

    "I have a few phones what can I do with them?" Gee what a question.... what exactly did you have in mind? Im sure what worm really ment was that he wanted to know how to change ENS and make himself a clone phone. My only advice on this is look up your brand-name and model...

    Im sure that if you can handle posting very un-informative things like this then you could handle a few google searches.

    If you don't mind the possability of your phones being broken then you could also take the battery out, take out the screws, pry apart the cover of the phone off of the back... it sometimes has little hooks on the sides that hold the phone part so you probably need to get screw drivers or something to pull each hook away from the sides that are being held. Then you can look at all the parts and (ect)

    Ok Here comes grumpy Und3rtak3r again....

    Old Mobile phones.. As these are predominatly a duplex radio tranceiver with fancey controle electronics and user interface.. what can you do..

    Old in car (3w analogue) - can be modified to one of several Ham radio bands either directly or via transverter.. A couple of locals converted a pair of Voxon set into (illegal) phone repeaters..
    or how about being the IF Amp and fm demodulator in a "satillite downlink audio test-set"

    Now as for the GSM handies.. Take another look at The Specialist's comments again.. and a little of imagination (oh and a lot of electronic knowledge) and possabilities abound..


    Cheers
