Why would you want that when all mobiles have a clock on them that's free to use? :P ;)

My friend had a mobile phone where if you hold down the star button for a few seconds it will tell you the time. He would get people to ask the phone what the time was. Half way through their asking of "What's the time", he would hold down the star button making it say the time back to them. :P

there is something like that here but it is an 0800 number (free). dialing 137 is fun cause it makes your phone ring once you put it down.

I'll have to try this on my VoIP phone...

Edit: No, it doesn't work, just an incredibly fast speaking woman saying "The number you've dialed doesn't exist", maybe because its an 0845 number.

Someone in my class had recorded themselves saying "D'oh!" and when my teacher said it was time for a maths quiz he played the sound. It was very funny.
