iPhone I use iCircuit which is great! I think it is actually the same program as the fakstad one I put the link to above but for the iPhone, it is better on the iPhone as it has more components. I don't remember if it was free or not, if it was pay for it was not much.
The extra transistor is just pushing more current through the base of the second, base current is usually small (collector current big) so it may have damaged the second one.
At least put a 1k resistor in the bases if you need to use 2.
How are you applying the cell phone voltage. Should be between base and ground.
If it still doesn't work measure some voltages around the transistors and across the relay.
You could also do a simple simulation to see if the transistor will switch a relay, then add the PNP underneath and see what happens
Hi George, I've been busy with other things the last few days - like doing my share of the housework instead of playing around with pieces of wire and resistors!
Here's a link to a site that seems to have a different take on how a timer might be constructed...... http://www.zen22142.zen.co.uk/ronj/24h.html#2
