We’re sorry, the IED you have dialed is not in service at this time.

    OMG after disarming a IED someone tried to detonate it by calling in cell phone attached.

    So glad they got to that one before it was able to be detonated. Very cool picture too, that would be a nice souvenir to keep to show the people back home.

    How does the phone display the "missed call", if the service was disconnected?

    The explosive devise was rendered safe. The phone service was not disconnected.

    Yeah... good luck with that.

    The only IED component I've ever seen smuggled out of theater was a brass EFP platter. He told Navy Customs it was a serving plate.

    For small IEDs like this why not just toss the whole thing into a portable faraday cage and dump it in the ocean or something :p

    This may be a really stupid question, but don't the phones in Arabic speaking countries have Arabic displays? HH

    Not necaceraly. It's an old Nokia phone. They mostly supported Latin based and left to right text so it's possible it didn't even had Arabic as a language selection.

    If I were IED expert, I would really be proud of what I had done, and who I had done it to.

    Congratulations to the "faster guy". Life is a race, finish well.

    Something tells me when they trace that number, we're going to hear about a Drone strike.
