    Is there a way I could brick my cell phone? Ive had the same phone for 4 years and my parents wont let me get a new one. I need there to be "something wrong" with it.

    Out of the corner of your eye
    get some water inside of it ... short it out, let it dry [​IMG]

    kill the battery ... many ways to do this ... fucking up the contact points is one way ...

    Hell, I'm willing to bet there are websites that can tell you a zillion ways of stealth-killinga phone lol

    Dont really want physical damage and also dont wanna kill the battery cuz wed probly just get a new one unless they dont sell them anymore. Im thinking the water idea but idk. I want to open it up but when i take out all the screws it doesnt even budge.

    Pull out the contacts on the phone that touch the battery.

    What phone is it? Rechargable Batteries don't last forever; depending on the type that's in it the battery might die soon anyway.

    Whatever you're going to do wait a month or two; if your phone miraculously dies right after your parents say you can't have a new one they'll know you did it [​IMG]

    Wait I've just realised... who's paying for this new phone? [​IMG]

    Pretend you're mature, mow some lawns and buy a new one yourself. Your parents will think more of you.

    Yah but they probably won't let him, cuz like "Oh what's wrong with your phone right now?" So just break it.

    Well.... you could dissample the phone and cut a leg on a Microchip or even better kill one of the power traces.
    Assemple it again and there you go a bricked cell.


    I would advice you NOT to short the battery or something!

    A Lituim Battery can catch fire and not just normal fire. Chimical fire.
