Cell Phone Zombie's main role is to help you thin out the deck and have a higher chance of getting more useful cards. He can also be used to activate Dino-Roar abilities cheaply. However, as he gives you no hand advantage at all while having very poor stats, it may be more preferable to replace him with Fun-Dead Raiser, Regifting Zombie, Kite Flyer, or Wormhole Gatekeeper, as they can draw cards more efficiently. Still, his stats do make a little sneaky use, namely blocking a powerful plant that would otherwise defeat you.
As Super Brainz or Huge-Gigantacus, 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.
You 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 this zombie in order to prevent your opponent from drawing another card for just 2 brains.
