I have found it convenient to use color security cameras and old camcorders with USB video-to-digital adapters, and the same cameras also work with TV stuff. (I use it for webcams and PC video stuff.) But if you have a soldering iron that is sharp enough to solder the chips in your picture, let me know where I can get one and I'll think about it. I have some of that stuff laying around too.

most people goto radio shack for supplies(they have soldering stuffs) but since my area doesnt have radio shack i would probably goto some other stores. by the way this cell phone that i stripped down is motorola's v303

He means that the chips in the phone would require an unusually sharp soldering tip, which would be hard to find.
