Plick! The light suddenly went off. The office was pitch dark, except for the tiny wee bit of light from my monitor. I need to go to the switch room to fix the power trip. How? I was lost for a moment. I do not have a torch light with me. Suddenly an idea strike me. My handphone! I can use my handphone. No, I am not using a handphone that has a torch function. My handphone has light. It comes in handy thought the light is really faint. At least I am not in darkness. lol. I find myself proud for the little bit of innovation. I just wonder, how else can we use our handphones? Friends, what other innovative ways have you used your handphone other than talking and sending text messages. Are there any special functions in your phone that is unique? Kindly share :)

I've used mine as a "flashlight" (torch) before also. I don't get to use it very often as a phone so at least I'm getting some use out of it! Probably my most innovative use of it was when the dashlight went out on my car as I was driving at night. I set the display light on the phone to not time out and set the phone under my gauges. Sure the laws says we can't TALK on the phone while driving...it doesn't say we can't USE it while driving lol!

Yes, the law does not say we cannot USE it while driving. Creative usage. I know Sony Erisson has one model that have a power light - may be good for fog lights.

Aww bighead. You know I'm using my grandmother's mobile. I don't think there's any other special feature other than to bang your head. It might shrink your head a little, LOL.
