I use my Note2 all the time to tether with my laptop, and most of the time the phone is in my pocket. This had me thinking -- is it dangerous to keep a phone close to your body while it is using data? What about when it is using WiFi or a phone signal? Have any studies shown that this is a bad idea?

Thanks.

Personally, I wouldn't keep it there for long periods. Just my gut speaking.
