Phone in your purse? No problem

These latest cell phone charms clip onto a purse, and flash whenever you receive a call or text.

I've missed plenty of calls when my cell phone has been in my pocket, so I can imagine that people who carry a phone in a purse or bag have the same problem. But with the Phoneflasher line of charms, missing calls can be a thing of the past.

Simply clip the trinket onto your purse and whenever you receive a call or text message, the charm wirelessly picks up the signal and flashes. The Web site offers no specifics on how this works, so you'll have to take the company's word for it.

You can choose from a wide variety of trinkets. The leather series offers hearts, butterflies, and the copyright-skirting "Playfull Bunny." The crystal series only offers dolphin, heart, and seahorse charms.

These charms seem like they could be useful, and they cost about $16 each. I can see the younger demographic eating these up, but those with more expensive tastes may prefer a Louis Vuitton charm instead.
