Cell phones as data link

Has anyone tried using a pair of cell phones as a data link to onboard
telemetry???
For example: connecting the output of a GPS receiver to the onboard cell
phone using
a RS232-to-phone cable and the other phone connected to a laptop. You
could even
establish a 2 way session by including a micro controller onboard.
Of course this assumes you can make a phone call...... (How about Black
Rock??)

NASA Wallops has flown Globalstar satellite phones on balloons and rockets. I was part of an early study that showed they could be used on LEO satellites. Satellite, phone home!
