Somewhere in CF, a couple of months ago, there's a thread by someone who managed to cobble a later OnStar digital phone into a pre-2002 car (supposed to be not "upgradeable"). Not easy, and took a bit of wiring and module replacement. Apparently the install worked, but not all features worked, either.

Also somewhere on here, someone posted a Bluetooth module that turns the dead OnStar into a hands free phone interface.

the reason i wanted to add Onstart to my car was becosue there is this one place that i go to visit a friend every few weeks and there is only one cell phone that works out that way and not even 50 percent of the time does it work and those are verizon phones i dont like thems o i wont buy them
i have ATT and same phone number since i was 17 years old so going on 12 years and love them
i was up that way a few weeks ago with a rental car that had onstar in it and i was able to purchas prepaid minutes from onstar and it worked up there so that is why i wanted to add it
becouse there is no cell reception within 30 miles of any direction
