hi antimatter
welcome to the forums :)

making walkie talkies unfortunately, no ... mobile phones are designed to communicate back to a base station ( a cellular tower) they dont and cant communicate between each other

the best you may do is using some of the surface moount resistors, capacitors, transistors and diodes in other projects you may work on

cheers

The display screens used in many of the older phones can be recycled if there is enough documentation to be found on them...
