Anthony Weiner still knows his way around a cellphone — and was using one Monday to send text messages from a halfway house in The Bronx, a fellow inmate told The Post.
But the serial sexter once known as “Carlos Danger” has been reduced to pressing the buttons on an old-school flip phone, which is the only kind permitted in the privately run facility, his new pal said.
The inmate said he introduced himself to Weiner, who’s been “holed up in his room” since getting transferred from a federal prison in Massachusetts to serve out the remainder of his 21-month sentence for sending “obscene material” to a 15-year-old girl.
“He was on his phone, texting somebody,” the inmate said.
Under special conditions that are part of his sentence, Weiner, 54, can use electronic devices but must let the feds install software to monitor his activity.
The inmate who befriended the disgraced ex-congressman said that “I got to shake his hand, exchange a couple of words. We spoke for about a good 10 minutes.”
“I asked him how is his situation, and he said, ‘We all go through things,” the inmate recalled.
Their chat came hours after The Post exclusively revealed Weiner’s new digs, where he’ll be living until his May 14 release, with time off for good behavior.
The inmate said Weiner “knows there’s a lot of people out there waiting for him,” referring to reporters trying to follow-up on the scoop.
He also said Weiner “told me wanted to go see his son and to go back home to see his family.”
“He did not speak about his wife at all,” he added.
Weiner’s long-suffering wife, Huma Abedin, filed divorce papers hours after he pleaded guilty in May 2017.
But the couple voluntarily “discontinued” the case in what their lawyers said was a bid to protect their six-year-old son, as first reported by The Post.
