    The largest use of palladium today is in catalytic converters.[32] Palladium is also used in jewelry, in dentistry,[32][33] watch making, in blood sugar test strips, in aircraft spark plugs and in the production of surgical instruments and electrical contacts.[34] Palladium is also used to make professional transverse flutes.[35]

    There are a lot of precious metals in cell phones, palladium most likely one of them. Although, every cell phone model is different. A good source of palladium that I have read is Monolithic Ceramic Capacitors. These are on cell phone boards, as well as a lot of other boards.
