    cell phone screens

    I have a kyocera kx-13a that no longer works. Does anyone know of a way to use the screen out of it for anything useful? Maybe a way to display a single output from the car like gas, or MPH...

    I don't like throwing away items when certain parts of them still function.

    I have heard of people using Nokia screens for micro controllers, don't know about anyone elses though.

    A quick glance at google didn't show me anything useful for Kyocera, but "nokia lcd microcontroller" came up with a bunch of good hits. You might poke around some of that and see if it leads anywhere.

    www.eio.com has some good forum information on cellular phone screens. Most everything I've read used the Nokia screen, though.

    In this day and age old technology is anything over 4 months! My "new" smartphone has already been replaced by 2 new models and I haven't even had it a year!!!

    yeah

    i need an cell.. don't care how old it is. As long as it came from a cricket service provider. My cricket fell in my Dr. Pepper... i'd rather spend 15 to transfer service than 50 for a phone plus the 15. I'm a college student that is strapped for cash
