    i phone
    Thanks for great classes, i love them.



    Question: What is status of i Phone or other cell phone?



    How about a lap top computer or i pad?



    Are these "kelim of issur," or "muktzeh chesron kis," or muktzeh machamas gufo?"



    I would assume "chesron kis," as you will not use your cell phone to break a nut, like a hammer. However u will use it as a page holder in a book?



    but maybe it is not a "keli" at all and it is "muktzeh machmas gufo?"



    In other words, why is money not a keli? why is a dollar not a keli and a cell phone is?



    why is food not a keli and a hammer is?



    why is a beam of wood shaped to build not a keli, but muktzeh machmas gufo?



    Thanks.
