Doing cool things with your cell phone

I'm wondering if anyone here has messed around with their cell to any extent - modding - custom software - peripherals or add-on gadgets?

I use mine as a bluetooth remote for my powerbook.
You can use it to control DVD/audio playback.

Also when I'm in the headphones and the phone rings, the number comes up on my screen .. I can even use the built in mic on my powerbook to talk to people via bluetooth.

I can customize almost every facet of my phone via bluetooth.

If you have a Sony Ericsson w/ Bluetooth check here

when i had my nokia 6188 (rip), i gave it a total facelift

clear blue shell (not just the faceplate, the back piece too), blue lights, blue LED, a short multicolor antenna

i use to use it as a beacon so that friends could find me @ a dark club and it was a long standing joke @ how bright the fucker was...3 mos after i got it done, bell came out w/ that commercial where a buncha guys light up their phones to point out where their cottage is.

since I have unlimited high speed browsing on my phone, i can surf the web, use msn, google maps etc, at any time.

also, you can make and download your own ring tone using rumkin.com

pm if you need more info.

Yeah I found the Float Mobile Agent a while ago, never saw this site though. I think its a great program, and updates with Outlook way better than the program that came with my phone.

Razrs are totaly hackable. Howard Forums are good. But MotoModders http://motomodders.net/ has more information and easier tutorials.

I have a Razr, and I upgraded the flash, enabled video recording, removed all the rogers branding, put up some custom themes. Good stuff all around.

Should I expect to be able to use my digicam's USB cable? My computer can talk to the phone but anytime I try to flash/flex whatever it fails.

Probably not.. From my limited experience, non-OEM cables are unreliable. You are better off purchasing another cable.

just grabbed a 512meg Micro SD card for 50$ tax in, get home, and find out my phone will in fact handle the 1gig. All good tho.
so far i have the whole first season of Entourage and about 20 mp3 sets.

have you tried increasing the volume on the wired headset? i'd like to try that but would rather know its doable first before i mess with any of the files
