What do you do with your old Smartphone?



This Pegasus statue was made using 3500 smartphones. Apparently it has "been fashioned using a whopping 3500 Huawei smartphones by Machine Shop from London. The colossal structure was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Spain by the Chinese manufacturer along with the Ascend D Quad."

There's an idea for the artists among us! ;-)

What do you do with your old Smartphone? Creative

Julia/Mick - I am so impressed with creativity such as this sculpture with smartphones that seem to meet an earlier and earlier "death"! I wish I had thought about that with my "Brick" portable. When the prototype came out, I remember keeping it in my car as a "deterrent" (or so I imagined) to be used as if I was making a call if I felt I need to; and/or certainly as a weapon if I needed one! Ha.

My first portable phone...

This was my first mobile phone: I adapted the inside of my Wrangler Jacket to hold the phone in one side and the receiver in the other.

WOW - all from only the 'smart' phones!!! Just think what we could make if we went all the way back to the first Motorola "Brick" phone! ;-)

Hi Julia Fill fill my bottom draw :-) I can't quite stretch to a horse but I think I could make a dog or large cat with all of my old phones, I've got quite a collection to hand down to my great grandchildren. Nice post - Mick

Wonderful - and very beautiful. Unfortunately - after several days of short bursts of time trying to get my phone service provider to actually honour their termination promises - I'd be tempted to find out where the MD of the company lives and build an overnight statue of phones shaped like two giant fingers in his driveway - fashioned after Harvey Smith - the brusque and controversial Yorkshire horseman - who invented the 'Harvey Smith salute'. Yes - Totality Communications - I do mean YOU!

Oh blimey, I could've had one of those! I'm like Suz - I use things until they fall apart generally. I will get a smartphone fairly soon - I keep saying I will! My only reason though is to use on the move, while travelling etc as my laptop is murder to lug around. Honestly I hate the whole idea of having the same things as everyone else, so I'm determined NOT to get an iPhone. Of course this means I have to spend time doing a bit of research. Which I don't really have the time or inclination for. My current phone has internet and limited apps. It's enough to check the football scores on (100 points!) but not so great for checking email (-100 points). I need one that syncs with Windows Live - any rcommendation?. I've been told the Nokia Lumiere - but the interface looks a bit messy to me.

How about taking fake brandproducts of the market and turning the into art?! Let's get things moving! Fred Rutgers

I don't have a Smart phone and use my mobile phones for many years until they very old and almost fall apart. Is it really necessary to change so often? Some people don't even have anything to eat or drink so... Maybe we all can give a contibution instead of buying a new phone next time. To those boys, for example...
