How a broken phone can be useful in an extreme survival situation
If you're lost out in the wild, finding your way back to civilization shouldn't be that hard. As long as you have your phone with you, that is, and as long as there's signal. But if your phone is broken or far out of its coverage area, then that makes things a bit more complicated. Okay, a lot more complicated. 

Thankfully, a phone can be a useful tool in an extreme survival situation even if it is broken. Some of its components can be turned into cutting tools, or even used to start a fire. Flick through the slideshow below to find out how.
