    Ok I have a asus zenfone 2 and the problem with it is it can't receive any cellular data, i brought it to a technician and he said that the problem is the IC and he's not gonna touch it anymore because it might break completely.

    So basically i have phone that doesn't have the most basic functionality of a phone but everything still works like wifi and such.

    So my question is what do I do with it now, because for me it's pretty useless now but it does have 4gb of ram and a 64gb rom so what kind purpose can i use for?

    if I were you, attempt to root your phone, change custom ROM, or use it as a CCTV camera ( there are apps on PlayStore)

    I can think of several uses for the phone.

    1. Music Player including streaming, bluetooth, headphone jack + loudspeaker,
    2. Video Player
    3. Gaming (Android games + emulation)
    4. Can still connect via WiFi and be used for video calls, VOIP, Instant Messaging
    5. Alarm clock, calendar, emails, browsing,
    6. Camera phone

    Hope this helps

    If I am not late, you can give that to any particular technician and let him experiment on it in return of some pennies.
    While you can buy a new one, there are many new models in the market with the functionalities that you never imagined..
    Why not try P30 pro? ..
