Cell Phone Zombie's main role is to help the zombie hero thin out the deck and have a higher chance of getting more useful cards. As he gives the player no hand advantage at all while having very poor stats even for his cost, it may be more preferable to replace him with Fun-Dead Raiser, Regifting Zombie, or Wormhole Gatekeeper, as they can draw cards more efficiently. On the other hand, his stats do make a little sneaky use, namely blocking a powerful plant that would otherwise defeat the zombie hero.
As Super Brainz, try to Bounce him with Firefighter or put him in a gravestone via Mixed-Up Gravedigger so you can reuse his ability. However, only use Firefighter if there are no zombies with more useful abilities, as there are many abilities more useful than drawing a single card.
As Rustbolt, you can use him in a professional deck with Zombie Middle Manager and Jurassic Fossilhead, but Cell Phone Zombie can only boost Zombie Middle Manager for so much due to his low health, and Planetary Gladiator is much better for Jurassic Fossilhead's Evolution in every aspect.
He can also be used to activate Dino-Roar abilities cheaply. While there are no Dino-Roar zombies in the Brainy class and only one on each other class excluding Sneaky, you will still end up with an extra card.
The player can use almost anything to destroy this zombie, as he has the stats of a regular Zombie. However, the player must try to avoid Bouncing the zombie in order to prevent the zombie hero from gaining another card for just 2 brains.
