Old Cell Phone Use

I'm new to hacking and modding. I have an old Samsung camera phone, not connected to service and without a smart card. Is there any way I can use it as a digital camera or use its other features without the smart card?

If you can find some camera drivers on the board or the internet, you might actually be able to use them. Add a USB interface and you got yourself a little webcam. Or use on for a color recognition system on a robot.
i would not be surprised if you needed a card (CELL PHONES ARE EVIL!!) but chances are if you can unlock it you won't need a card
