Reuse of old mobile Answered

I am using a mobile phone  tracker site to track my car in case it is stolen.  I wanted to adapt the old mobile phone by stripping it down to essentials to ensure that the sim signal was still running but there was no need for the display / keyboard.  Is there an instructable or website that offers advice on how to do that? The phones are old nokia phones so not worried if they get trashed.


The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

Why strip it down? You should be able to find a nice place up inside the dash to hide the phone and hard wire the car charger for the phone so it stay connected to the car battery. Then you won't have to worry about the phone staying charged.
