A broken cell phone in a survival situation may seem like a useless piece of equipment at first.
Before you throw it out however, there are some important survival tools that a broken cell phone or smartphone can provide.
Let’s take a look a hypothetical situation.
You’re stuck out in the middle of the woods with only your mobile phone.
Forget about calling for help. You tripped on a branch earlier and your phone was hurled into a giant rock that caused it to shatter.
It’s getting dark and you’re starting to panic. You’re starting to hear noises all around you and you’re not sure what to do. You’re entering survival mode.
The thing is: there’s hope!
Using only your broken cell phone, you will be able to rig up some pretty useful survival tools. So, before you shop online for all the latest camping and outdoor equipment, you should probably shop online for 4g phones; because they’ll kill two birds with
one stone. Well, unless it’s the stone that broke your phone in the first place.
A broken smartphone can be salvaged into many useful tools in a survival situation such as:
- A fire starter.
- Cutting tools.
- A signal mirror.
- A compass.
- Hunting and fishing tools.
