“Apple, Schmapple! Make your own phone with an Arduino & Adafruit FONA shield. This project will show you how you can use the FONA shield and a TFT shield stacked on top to make a touch-screen phone that you can program yourself.
This project doesn’t need a ton of parts, and there’s some flexibility based on whether you want to use a headset or speaker and mic. Using Adafruit’s great libraries, you can make your own touch-screen dialer in 200 lines of code. Extend it yourself, or keep it simple. Design your own interface or code up a custom app, right from the Arduino IDE”
