Definitely a Dead Zone

John Jacobs was buried three years ago with a fully charged cell phone.

His $55 Verizon bill gets paid every month and his cell number is even etched into his gravestone under the words "Rest in Peace."

The first call to Jacobs in the great beyond occurred at his funeral, when son Simon, 19, phoned while startled mourners gawked at the ringing coffin at Cedar Park Cemetery in Paramus, NJ.

"The poor grave diggers," recalls [widow Marian] Seltzer, laughing. "I thought they'd have a heart attack." [Link]
