Submission + - Ask Slashdot: What uses for an abandoned Windows Phone? 4

unixisc writes: While it's always been well known that Windows phones in the market have always floundered, one saving grace has always been that one could at least use it for the barest minimum of apps, even if updates have stopped. But Microsoft has finally proved that wrong by dealing a death blow to the platform: removing WiFi capabilities. I had been using that for other things in existing apps, but yesterday, when I found that I could no longer access the Internet without using cellular data, I switched that phone to another old Android I have.

Aside from a door stop or a hand me down to someone who'll use it like a dumb phone, what are your suggested uses for this phone? A music player (if the songs are on an SD card)? Games? As far as phones go, I have what I need, so for this, anything it's good for?
