the old philips savvy vogue was the best for this - you didnt even have to txt it, you could change the settings, and when you 'previewed' the vibrate mode, it would vibrate continuosly.

I guess now i realise why they sold so many of these terrible phones :-P

Oh sounds fun. But owning a Nokia puts you at disadvantage, they just dont vibrate that well

LOL. Every girl girl i knew in high school owned one of those things. And there i was thinking they were buying them cos they were cheap.

So is this organised racing? Prizes?

Will we need to check the phones before they compete to check for unfair modifications?


It'd be fair funny to watch.

Does a 3G phone vibrate faster than a 2G phone? After all 3G is higher speed and lower latency.

3G fones will have more weight remember as it has two radio's built in so this may be a disadvantage

My Harrier would have more chance of winning than a 3 legged clydesdale in a greyhound race. Hardly vibrates at all, doesnt help I have her safely wrapped in an alumimium case.

Now if it was a gravity race - she would have a chance (no I dont subscribe to Newtons law of gravity - it just dont make sense)

Gravity is a myth.....The Earth Sucks!

Perhaps you could cheat with a Sony Ericsson handset and one of their bluetooth cars tied to the handset....

Ah not a CDMA 3G phone - single radio - no weight gain. Is that considered an advantage from the outset?

Johnr sounds like you need to send your phone to Jenny Craig for a bit weight control

You could always fall back to the 'mobile phone throwing' for the loosers of the race. If you lost the race, get your chance to win in the throw. :)

Luckily the laws of gravity mean a feather and a brick will fall at the same rate.

Although the aerodynamics of the objects may cause lag. ;p
