Make your own cellphone from scratch

Instructables- The DIY Cellphone is a working (albeit basic) cellphone that you can make yourself. It can make and receive phone calls and text messages, store names and phone numbers, display the time, and serve as an alarm clock. It connects to GSM networks (like AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S.) using a regular (full-size) SIM card. It builds on the hardware and software in the Arduino GSM Shield but extends it with a full interface, including display, buttons, speaker, microphone, etc. (Phones)

This has nothing to do with making a phone from scratch. It's just ordering some parts and throwing them together. This will give you a wooden!? phone, wich can't do sh*t. And all that for less than 200$. Whohoe!

Its hardware and software are open-source and available on GitHub (hardware, software)."

I read the article. Still, Lego technic is just as complicated. What's so sexy about assembling something that someone else has invented?
