How to make an old cellphone's camera into a wireless webcam ? Answered

I wanna use my old Quad-band cellphone(lcd broken) with 2.0MP camera to transmit video wirelessly.
I have a idea how to do it but don't know if its right. 
Here's what i think will do the trick: I wanna transmit the video via the phone's internal antenna. For that i will have to somehow make the camera run with battery power then i will have to attach the data cords of the camera with the phone's internal antenna. I made it sound very easy but it ain't and i know it coz the camera is soldered to the phone's board and its connected via tape wires so no way i can cut them. I chose the phone's internal antenna coz its a quad band phone so it supports all 4 bands 800, 900, 1800 and 1900MHz. so the range would be good. But i still don't know how to make it work.
I haven't thought about the receiver though, The receiver also has to be of matching frequency, that i know.
Anybody can help me in putting this wild idea of mine into practicality ?
Thank you.
