Would it be possible to attach a script to an object(cellphone)
that would let players access the board from anywhere in the mud?

Not easily. Boards are handled as special procedures (HELP SPECIAL). But, you could probably make it work by giving the board object a unique name and using %at%. So whenever you want them to interact with the board the phone trigger could use %at% unique_board_name <write/read/etc>

I thought of it as a quick and dirty way of having global boards you can post to anywhere, but I might just have to put it to the backburner until I get more familiar with the sourcecode. I'm already trying to figure out where everything ties in together that makes everything work (EVERYTHiNG lmao). Don't think I want to add studying DG scripts to it as well. I thought it was a good idea though if anyone wants to try to get something working with it DG side. I'll have someting up for custom prompts after I have it finished, then maybe I'll get back to seeing if I can figure out a hard-coded option for global boards instead.

Only downside is comparing with Ghostmud/rom to make sure I get some parts right. Eventually I suppose it'll be a crossbreed, but that's only going for cosmetics once I work in area files. Working on the conversion is kinda fun lol.
