Cell phone buzzer modification? Answered

Is it possible to modify your phone or phone buzzer so it will vibrate a lot stronger as seen in this clip (skip the first 10 seconds).

Only a grip man can do that.   That would cause a huge battery drain
which a real phone probably wouldn't survive.

Just get a lithium battery pack, a solid mini motor
with an offset shaft weight, a switch and you can get your ------ off.

What if I diverted the buzzer power source to a transistor which would turn on the buzzer with a different power source?

(I thought I would ad, my aim is not to get my ------ off)

(Sorry about the double post -- minor edit. Ignore me anyway.)

No offense intended, and I know this is offtopic, but given the recent news events I sorta need to vent --- please pardon my petting my peeve in public...

I'm always just a bit nervous when folks ask remote-control questions involving cell phones. Yes, I know, if people wanted to do something nasty there are plenty of other resources out there, and any technology can be abused if someone puts their mind to it, but that particular combination has features which set my teeth on edge.

And yeah, I know that there's now an off-the-shelf interface between iPhone and arduino. I don't claim I'm being rational.

Please feel free to ignore me. But there are some classes of question I'm uncomfortable answering on an open and hemidemisemianonymous board, and this is one of them.

End of rant. We now return you to your regularly scheduled I'bles.
