How often do you use your camera phone to take pictures? Simple. Not enough!

Here’s a quick list of several uses for your camera phone:


  1. Try taking a picture of the take-out menu at your favorite restaurant. Save paper.

  2. And snap a picture of the business hours.

  3. Is it your birthday coming up? Walk around the mall and take pictures of what you want. Then send your list around.

  4. Is your roommate stealing your stuff? Take a picture of your belongings each time you leave your room.

  5. Do you lend DVDs, CDs, or books to your friends? Take a picture of it and label it your friend’s name to remember who has what.

  6. Forget saving business cards. Just snap a picture of them.

  7. Take a picture of your suitcases. If they’re lost, you can show exactly what they look like.

  8. When in a foreign city, take pictures of the intersection next to your hotel. If you’re drunk, show the cab driver the photo, and he’ll know to go.

  9. Hell, take a picture of your hotel room number if you really lack memory skills.

  10. When traveling, take a picture of your hotel’s name and even the important phone numbers. If you’re in a foreign country, it’s not 9-1-1. Take a picture of the number to remember it.

  13. See a psychology experiment? Or a job offering? Or a local show? Snap a picture to remember it.

  16. Did you just now get the highest score? Take a picture and taunt your friends.

  18. Be the paparazzi.

  19. Need to remember something important on your todo list? Take a picture to remind yourself and set it as your wallpaper.
