View Full Version : Uses for spare cell phones?
08-03-2000, 01:40 PM
I've got a couple of spare cell phones laying around both of the Motorola (one is an old Zack Morris phone and the other is an Analog Startac).
Anyone know of how I can put either of these to use?
long range garage door openers

Haha, now that's a high tech looking garage door opener... Maybe you could program it so you could dial your neighbors address and it opens his garage door... With the possibilty to store 99 numbers that's 99 houses you can open!
Give the cell phone to an elderly relative who dont need to have a plan but just for emergencies...keep it charged up and they can still call for emergency 911's.

Yup, that's a good one. Donate it to charity, get the full purchase price back as a tax deduction (if it makes a difference). Put it in the trunk of your car for if (and when) you get kidnapped. Use it to give someone "head cancer" (South Park movie ref.). Call yourself repeatedly in quiet restaurants, look like an agent! A hammer. Find a buyer in a rural neighborhood. Hmm, that pretty much taps me out!

How do you program one as a long range garage door opener?

The one I used before I aptly named Zack Morris in honor of that huge phone of his in Saved by the Bell... Haha, that phone sucks.
