    Well they did use to be called Cell Phones, after all.

    Sorry if you were expecting a dirty joke here.

    Was it a trial the new A-Phone

    What type of Biometrics did you say?

    The polyp counting kind or the blood vessel pattern kind?

      No, but it does put new meaning to "Polyphonic" ringtones

    Well, he's just getting used to having things put up there.

    We sincerely hope the plastic cup is included for scale.

    Yes, I'm really, really hoping it had nothing to do with 'Two chargers one cup'...

    Is that a phone up your arse or can you really fart the Nokia tune?

    I'm assuming that not all of the 1,200 away-day prisoners were x-rayed on return; so how did they know to check this one?

    Also, did this guy not see the FAA warnings about lithium batteries? Cue "Ring of Fire"...

    Package contents

    1x mobile ... check

    1x charger ... check

    1x cable ... Idiot! You brought 2 chargers but no cable. We'll have to wait until next year. Your mom will be so disappointed when it's her birthday . :-( :-( :-(

    I wonder what the first call was he received after producing his mobile. Probably some call center agent offering him a free phone upgrade if he renews his contract.

    -----------------------> The keys on this phone seem to be somewhat dirty,

      Indeed, forgetting the cable seems rather remiss for someone who is clearly very anally retentive.

    No one said it?

    What an arsehole...

    No way

    I'm not answering that call.

  17. Scott Broukell

    No, no, no, no, no . . . .

    That will never work, you're holding it the wrong way!

    Does this mean ...

    Jails X-Ray inmates without the protection of 'pinafores' filled with Lead to protect their 'Crown Jewels'?

    Yeah, I was dating him, he was unconscious, one thing led to another....

    I used to work in a phone forensics lab. Nobody ever wanted the 'bumphone' jobs. There weren't that many, but there were enough to make it worth having a solid supply of latex gloves.

    Best part was, the report didn't always state in detail where the police had gotten the phone from. Sometimes the first you knew was a nasty smell, or seeing through the evidence bag that it was... less than clean.

  21. FozzyBear

    Everyone seems so surprised that he managed to insert that much

    I'm not. I know any number of senior managers and politicians that live with their head up their arse.

    Not an iPhone 6?

    clearly no fanbois in prison.

    When I were a lad...

    .. They'd turn up in A&E with a variety of things hidden up there, it was amazing that, to a man, they all said

    " I accidentally sat on it "

    I work in a prison and this isn't anything new. The prisoners tend to have the latest mobiles to send out pics of themselves to newspapers to piss off the authorities. Of course the phones have to have a battery and when an illegal phone is found up a prisoners jacksie I always ask "Did their eyes light up?"
