Car Phone

No, not a phone in a car--a phone that is a car, or at least looks like one. This car is a converted VW Beetle that is being used to promote a phone company. I think this may be even more exciting to see on the road than the sheepdog from the movie Dumb and Dumber.Link via TechEBlog

Phone apps are creeping more into the musical space. Famous musicians have been seen using cell phones with apps to play in their shows.

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

Phone Headset

I would swear I saw an Instructable on this somewhere, but now I can't find it. I have an old corded telephone that I want to rewire. I just want to take the actual handheld part and attach it to a standard 2.5mm stereo output, such that I could either plug it into a cell phone and have a giant cool headset, or use it with my speaker/mic splitter to do VoIP-type work on the computer. Do phone cords have standard colored wires? Am I just going to have to figure it out myself? The headset has a standard 4-contact CAT-1 phone jack, and I want to take one end off a phone cord and replace it with a 2.5mm plug.

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?

How can we turn an old Nokia phone for a scanner?

I know a friend who does something with an old Nokia phone and turn it to a scanner. He can eavesdrop on other people's phone calls, too. I was told that this is impossible with the GSM network as it has more security but i swear he does it all the time. He starts this by installing an old program on the phone first that activates the network monitor. Then he puts in codes on one of the menu and it works. I asked him many times to teach me but he does not want to teach any one this trick. Does any here know how this works?

DC buzzer/noisemaker that doesn’t use a transistor?

I want to them to be able to survive an EMP, so I don’t want to use transistors. Is there anything I can use for a DC buzzer/noisemaker that doesn’t need AC power, or a transistor?   The voltage of the phones is 1.5v - 3v dc
