LCD display, keypad, battery, actual cellphone chip should be available as saperate parts. Make your own cellphone by combining these.

Cellphone chip can be made available in a form similar to USB -stick cellphone modem.

If one wants a larger display, simply replace the display.

Modular phone [DenholmRicshaw, Jan 24 2011]


       Done this. With my Motorola SlimLite in the latter years of the 90s. It was in my jacket inside pocket and smashed apart whilst navigating the corner of a banister at the bottom of a stairway that encouraged swinging around rapidly. Then I did it again a few weeks later. Both screws at the bottom of the case were smashed from their mounts, so after that it would have a habit of turning into a self-assembly kit at a moments notice, down the pub. This one preceded my StarTac 130, which used the same battery, which was handy as the 130 could hardly do a whole day on just one.

       sometimes we have to throw away cellphone just because keypad stoped working, may be due to dust or coffee-spill. In above case, replace only keypad, just like we change battery.
