Re: Give us the hole story!
He was doing a little web browsing with it, and got to the part where he need to enter colon in the URL...
A Sri Lankan lag at Colombo's Welikada jail was relieved of his illicit mobe after it inconveniently rang during a cell search, alerting officers that he'd concealed it where the sun don't shine. Artist's impression of Nokia 8850 stuck up Taiwanese woman's back passage An official at the Colombo hospital where the phone was …
It must have turned on inside him. I can't believe anyone could be so stupid to leave a phone on when you put it up your bum.
Also I wonder if he had the charger up there. On the X-ray it looks like just the phone and some headphones, so surely you'd conserve the power while smuggling it in.
I would assume it's a long-life phone like a Nokia 2100. I would also assume the guy only switches it on when he wants to make a call. It could easily last for a week or two like this, by which time a buddy could smuggle in another one.
Or, if you're in a South African prison, the cost of charging a phone is one pack of cigarettes to your favourite guard.
I've been thinking about four or five galvanised steel buckets, filled with urine, with copper foil suspended in them, connected in series as a battery. Would this work? Have I thought of the correct materials?
Note: This is a serious engineering problem, so no sniggering and no off-colour jokes please.
One would expect hiding a phone to be relatively painless after a few years behind bars, thanks to the um, "problems" ..
As any really devious prisoner knows, the best way to "hide" a mobile is to use one of those prepaid 3G sticks and power it and the uC Morse code based SMS TX and RX using a battery made from citrus, used tea bags, etc and metal foil sheets "liberated" from the rubbish bin.
Failing that, an even simpler method pioneered by a certain guy in the UK is to make a "lemon" optical transmitter that sends flashes of (presumably infrared) light Morse to a remote receiver.

Daily Mail has a copy of the X-ray:
Rather strangely, it looks like there's a pair of earphones in there too (perhaps he wanders around "hands-free" with that stored in its little pocket...)
Well, if one was going to go into prison and needed to conceal a mobile phone, which would be best suited to the task? Things to consider:
* Battery life
* Rounded corners
* Ease of cleaning
I'd probably go with either one of the early Series 60 Nokias. Other strong candidates for rectal phonage include the Sony Ericsson T68i (just make sure the camera and MP3 accesories aren't attached!) or possibly the Sendo X.
