This study was aimed at finding out whether the method of using handphone in project-based speaking instruction could improve students speaking performance. A quasi-experimental method was used in this study. This study involved thirty eleventh grade students of SMA Negeri 18 Palembang in academic year 2009/2010 who were assigned either in experimental or control group. In order to get the data, two instruments were used, test and questionnaire. The result of the test showed that there was a significant difference in student’s speaking performance before and after the treatment. Independent sample t-test analysis showed that t- obtained, 3.633 (df=28, sig=0.05 two tailed) was greater than the critical value of t-table, 2.048 which means that there was significant difference between students’ speaking performance who learned through using handphone in project-based speaking instruction and the students who did not. The questionnaire distributed at the end of the treatment also showed that the students agreed that using handphone in project-based speaking instruction could be continuously applied as an effective method in speaking activity.
