All FIVE bombs that were found in the New York area used flip phones as a detonator

Three pipe bombs found in New Jersey and two IEDs that terrorized New York City on Saturday all have one thing in common – cell phones.

An old-school flip phone was used as a timer in all five home-made bombs.

Authorities said they still have not found any indication the incidents in New Jersey and New York are related, but in both cases flip phones were used as timers to detonate the explosives.

All phones used as detonators were similar in design, according to PIX 11.

    The gaping asshole known as Bill DeBlasio called them “intentional devices”.

    I thought this may be some sort of conspiracy nut, but it’s not. Hillaryous!

      There’s no way that many people would be holding up camera phones to capture Hillary Clinton walking on stage. Gimme a break. Nobody is that interested.

    You could use a phone as a timer, but it’s a bit of a waste. They are more likely used to detonate on command so you can do more damage.

      actual you used to be able to get bags of old flip phones for under a $1 a phone. Cheap timer. Connect the speaker wires to your detonator and pull the sim card or put it in flight mode. Then set a timer and boom.

      Setting it up with an account and remote setting it off is more complicated.

      or does anyone else remember the muslim men caught buying from walmart dozens of phones at a time.
