This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Tired of going to a community lot (and suffering a loading screen) just to get a cell phone?
Me too.
Buy Cell Phones, MP3 Players and Handheld Games directly from the catalog.
All gadgets will be found under Electronics > Small Electronics (telephones).
Buy, place on floor, then move into inventory.

Sorry, wants for these objects will not be fulfilled.
They will cycle to a different want once the object is placed into inventory, however (it's only a 500 point want anyway).

There are 3 files in the .zip- one for each object. Use the ones you want.

Additional Credits:
Thanks to the SimPE team for making these things possible and this community for making them worthwhile.

Win! Yes! I've always hoped for this. I was so sick of going through all those cheats just to circumvent the stupid shopping trip. <3

This is awesome, thank you so much! Every time a Sim rolls a want to buy any of these devices and I decide that Sim really needs one, I'd have to send him through all shopping places in neighbourhood in search for that blue thingy as I never remember where it's placed.

Thanks! I could always cheat these for families, but my legacy family always has to remain phone-less because I don't like going to community lots . Now they won't have to!

Neder, thank you so much. I got tired of my sims rolling the want and realizing I had not put that silly kiosk on a community lot of any sort. This is wonderful.

Sure. Fine. Whatever.

You... are... AWESOME! Thank you so much. It's always been a pain having to go to a community lot for something so small and insignificant haha.

Thank you! It's always annoyed me to have to go to a community lot (or cheat) just to get rid of that want when all I get for it are a lousy 500 points. I'll be happy to lose those points if it means I don't have to go through the hassle!

THANK-YOU THANK-YOU THANK-YOU! I'm sorry for the all-caps, but I literally squealed in glee when I saw this. It is always really frustrating when every single Sim wants a cellphone and I either have to cheat or take them to a community lot just for the sole purpose of getting them their stupid little cellphone. I cannot tell you how many headaches this gets rid of for me!
