    Question ? About blackberry curve 8330 and magnets

    Advertisement



    Hi,
    I have a question, I got a 8330 2 wks ago, I just thought about it, I have a magnetic mattress pad and I frequently sleep with my phone im wondering if its done any damage.. Thinking I should take it back since its within 30 days and remove the magnet pad.

    Lol... I would...

    Magnetic interference can affect data on your memory cards, hard drives and other functionality as well...

    Definagely get it switched if you can...

    Or put the phone on the nightstand. That's what I'd do.

    The manetic matress pad won't hurt it I'de think.....I don't see how it could. The sleep magnet in our cases is probably more powerful.

    I'm sure I should know this but why sleep on a magnetic mattress?

    Magnets have healing powers for your joints... (Never tried it though...)

    I've heard that but not too sure about it. I've had friends who wore magnets on their elbow for "tennis elbow" and copper bracelets for general healing powers.

    With a magnetic mattress, what if all the iron in your body settled in one place?

    Flash memory isn't magnetically sensitive at the field strengths you'll have from a magnetic pad. Just don't keep it next to a magnetic resonance imager or spectrometer, where the ferromagnetic components get ripped out.

    Quite honestly I don't think they'll kill it... But I'm sure it will interfere with reception, and probably could damage the screen or the speakers... Remember old school crt monitors and speakers and what magnetic interference would do to them...
