Phone Slam! Button

Slam your cell phone like you used to slam your rotary.

There should be a button on cell phones that you can push to simulate the pissed off, slamming the phone on its rest <clank!> sound. Or when you are really mad, and you can't even hang up the phone; it falls off a couple of times before you succeed! This makes a definitive statement without breaking anything.

(blatant self promotion): Maybe this will help with the slamming. [Cedar Park, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

this idea by [nomadic wonderer] might be what blissmiss was thinking of, it is the inverse of this idea (WTAGIPBAN) [krelnik, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

High-Bounce Cell Phone http://www.halfbake...unce_20Cell_20Phone
In case you missed this brilliant idea the first time around... [Overpanic, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       I searched, but found nothing like it. ???

       There's always my "high-bounce cell phone" idea...

       I thought the Rubber Phone was my idea. [link]

       A rubber phone, when dropped, would not make the violent CLANK! BING! sounds rather a boiiiinggg. That would be embarassing if you are trying to sound angry.   

       I believe that the happy marriage between the Rubber Phone [Ceder Park, Overpanic] and this device would be a great idea. Throw in an accelererometer or shock-switch to activate the SLAM function when the line is dropped.

       I would BUY [thumbwax]'s hang-up sound for my phone. [+][+][+]

       I will never again feel guilty while being asked for money in a roundabout way.
