In an emergency could scattered cell phones form a communications network if properly programed without need for relay towers? I'm guessing such a system might have severe limitations but if the software was built in it might be an inexpensive way to keep communications going during an emergency.

Or could cell phones be reprogrammed so they acted as cheap walkie talkies?

Thanks for any ideas or help!
