[?] get use of your old mobile

Post by Xtremee » Fri Sep 11, 2009 1:16 pm

Hi all,

I have Motorola Razr v8 that dropped down in the water and I tried to get it fixed but I didn't. I already get a new one, however I wonder If there is any way that I can get use of my old mobile (I do not wanna to sell it, I am looking for utilize it in any way)

btw, the mobile now is not responding to any thing and it is OFF.

looking forward to hear from all of you.

I think that this is not a forum regarding mobile phone issues though.

Some communities have recycling centers that accept cell phones. If yours does not, there are still plenty of uses for your old cell phone:
  1. Paperweight, as previously mentioned,
  2. Makeshift hammer for small projects,
  3. Decorative door knocker,
  4. Exercise weight, if older than ten years,
  5. Child's toy, provided all small parts are glued in place or removed,
  6. General purpose projectile weapon (for throwing, slingshots, potato guns, etc.),
  7. Skipping stone,
  8. Clock pendulum,
  9. Plumb-bob,
  10. "Will it blend?",
  11. Confetti, provided that it does indeed blend,
  12. Stress reliever ("Hulk smash!"),
  13. Christmas tree ornament,
  14. Bookmark,
  15. Junk drawer filler,
  16. Garbage disposal blade cleaner (remove the battery first).
As you can see, the possibilities are nearly endless! ;)

Uses for Grape Nuts:

1. Cat Litter
2. Oil Dry
3. You can glue a bunch to the back of the Razr v8 and use it as a sanding block.
4. I hear you can eat it with cereal.

Anyone remember the old '101 uses for a dead cat' books?

We need a similar one for old cell phones and mobile devices.
