Phone connection Answered

I tried entering some codes to try to connect my samsung t301g to my mac. The phone didn't do much. I wasn't sure if I am supposed to enter the codes in the main menu. The link shows the codes that should work. http://www.metacafe.com/watch/582887/unlocking_hacking_tricks_for_samsung_cells/

old phone? Answered

Today i was given a old phone. but its certainly a different phone, it has a cord, but the end on the cord is the same as one from a internet cord, but when i plug it in to a computer it has no effect. i think it might be a 'bag phone', all i know is its made by motorola. instead of trying to figure it out, i figured i would strip it down for parts, but other than the speakers, microphone, leds and a magnetic reed switch there isnt much. one thing that really interests me is the lcd screen it has, there arent very many pins connecting it to the board, it has a microship embedded of the back of the lcd board, covered in that wierd glue. does anyone know how i can reuse the lcd? would i need an arduino for it?

phone into a microphone

I was thinking about trying to turn an old phone into a microphone for a music performance or something? correct me if im wrong and i probably am but, a small crap microphone is a telephone would work would it? i was thinking if i left the whole phone in tact but made the cord come from the phone base into a microphone jack, how would i connect a microphone jack that has 5 legs to a 2 wire phone microphone? it couldnt be done could it? It would work if i just bought a crappy microphone and moved and fitted it into a telephone so it has all the circuit or what ever else is in one already in it I apologize if most of that doesn't make sence

Is that your ring phoning?

Here's half an idea - a ring that displays text messages. It might look like nothing more than a ring at first glance, but this finger-worn device can sync with your mobile phone. It has a vibratory alert and a tiny screen that shows caller ID, text messages, and meeting reminders from your mobile. Flip it open and it converts into a headset. In the image, the screen looks glued on, but I guess that it could easily be a small piece of epaper.  As for being an ear-piece, I can't see how it would end up large enough to be comfortable or practical, yet still start off small enough to wear as a ring. Now, if the some idea was expanded to a bangle, then an entire phone could be built into a bracelet small and slim enough to be discrete. Now the embarrassing bit: I got this story off MSN...

Mobile Phones and Elevators

Ahem. Theoretically, an elevator is a perfect faraday cage -- no radio waves should be able to get into them. Mobile phones shouldn't work in them. But rogers says that their phones do work in them. So here's my question for you, instructables community: do rogers phones work in elevators? If so, why?The only theory that we could come up with was that each elevator has a little repeater in it, but that seems a bit costly.

Cell phone battery

My friend gave me an old cell phone, with no battery. (No it does not have service). I don't know if it even works. It is a Motorola i860. Where the battery goes are four pins. How can I connect a AA, or AAA, etc battery to it to see if it works. The first time I tried it, it got real hot and then the battery smelled like it was burning. The second time it sparked. Is it even possible to do this? If it is, I need to know the voltage, polarity, and what pins to use.

Prepaid phone hacks?

Ok guys (and all you female hacks out there) I've got a question that I need help answering. Does anyone know if it would be possible to completely wipe a phones programming to be able to install an operating system on it ? The phone that I'm working with is a virgin mobile prepaid Super slice that got washed in the washing machine and is unable to be reactivated( trust me I've tried everything!) I would probably have to find a pretty darn small operating system, because I know that even damn small linux is too large and won't work. The phone is completely intact and all of the features work (including the camera ) it's just that I can't activate it so it's prety much useless unless I can turn it into some kind of micro-small-computer of some sorts. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. and just so you have a bit of info, the phone I believe has somewhere in the neighborhood of 1/4 of a megabyte of memory and an unknown amount of ram. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Can magnets in a cell phone pouch damage the phone? Answered

I had a Samsung flip-phone which I kept in a leather belt pouch with a magnetic flap closure. For the first 18 months, the phone was fine. Then it started rejecting calls when I removed it from the pouch to answer it, not every time, but once in awhile. I assumed that I was accidentally touching the Reject button. This kept happening more and more frequently, even after I started being very careful not to touch any of the controls. Finally, it started rejecting the calls when I lifted the flap of the pouch, without touching the phone at all. That's when I got a new phone. Throughout all of this, it worked just fine for outgoing calls, and sometimes even for incoming calls if the phone was not in the pouch when the call came in. As I said, I have a new phone now, and I still have the pouch but I'm kind of afraid to put the phone in it. Has anyone heard of phones being messed up in this way by magnetic-closure pouches before? All I find on Google is complaints about signal interference on the iPhone.

Can I download photos off a functioning (not broken) phone after I stop using my current carrier?

I want to change mobile phone carriers, but am afraid that if I do I won't be able to retrieve my photos off my phone (iPhone 4S) once I'm no longer with the same carrier (I'll be using a different phone, as well).  See, the thing is, I want to switch my phone and carrier NOW, but I don't have the capability to download my photos off my phone onto a computer right now.  I will have the capability in a month or so - but, not now.  So, before I switch carriers, I'd like to rest assured knowing that I merely need to just turn on the phone and I'll be able to download the photos onto my computer. (easy, right? :D) Thanks for any help! :) Bunny

Mobile phone signal Detector

I want to know if there is any 'mobile phone signal detector' already available in the market. The purpose is to find if anybody is using mobile phone for calls or messaging at restricted places. Jammers are not fine as some are exempted from making calls etc.. If there is nothing like that available, how to make one to detect the signal or even the phone from which the signal was emitted. Usually when we are about to receive a call or sms and if we are near a Speaker we get a specific noise through speaker, or if we are near a monitor (CRT) it flickers.  So I am sure there are ways to find this signal emission. Please suggest the options to do this....

Cell phone as walkie talkie

Does anyone know whether it's possible to re-purpose old cell phones as walkie talkies? I have some "old" phones (1X Tri-mode - 1.9 GHz and 800 MHz CDMA and 800MHz AMPS), and I'd love to be able to use them for our ski club as a short range back channel for communications in addition to the radios we use when we host races. I'm assuming we'd need to get some sort of base station, not sure where or how. There are probably some laws we'd have to comply with, assuming that something like this is even possible (I'm in Canada). I'd consider activating & using them normally, but the cell coverage on our mountain is very weak and unreliable, hence this post. Any ideas on how to get something like this started? Or is it a non-starter?

Cell phone motor power?

I have so many projects going on in my head that I am surprised there is room for anything else.  Heck I have plans for a Jacob's ladder, Tesla coil, perhaps a coil gun but who knows.  Well for quite some time I have also considered a vibe-bot or whatever you call them, the ones built with pager motors.  But since this is not too exciting to some people it is not something I have jumped on doing.  But I came up with a new twist today on the vibe-bot that I would like to try.  I do not want to give away too many details here because I would like to keep it a surprise if it works.  But I do see one possible problem with what I want to do and that is weight.  The parts I have already weigh in at 26 grams.  I am not sure how much the rest of the parts are going to weigh at the moment.  But I was wondering what you think the weight limit for a cell phone motor is.  I know that some cell phones can weigh a bit but I have no idea what the weight was for these cell phones since I did not have the scale at the time I tore them apart and would not have thought to weigh the phone anyways.  Thank you for your insight.
