Hmm, you're giving me ideas. I have about 10 old dial phones from which 
I can remove the dials....

Of course a dial cellphone has been done already, in fact I think you 
can buy them from Sparkfun, but a custom job for the Neo might be fun...

Wish I had an old Princess handset. That would be perfect.
