Exclamation Ah

Some people are more sensitive to RF than others.

I know when I stand under a cell tower for more than a minute or two I kind of get a weird headachey feeling so I don't do it very often.

Especially a cell tower with 2 or 3 carriers with their own antenna farms up on the tower.

For those of you saying the tingling is coming from lack of blood supply due to phone elevation or holding it too long are out of your minds! Obviously you haven't experienced it. As soon as I pick up my phone and place my pinkies at the bottom my fingers start to get a tingling/burning sensation and my fingers remain numb for about 10 min after I put it down.

You have a blood clot in your arm. See your doctor. You could have a massive stroke any minute.

I'd go to the nearest nuclear power plant, and begin the negative ion degaussing process.

If there's no plant nearby, simply smash your finger with hammer.

If you feel a tingling in your fingers, you should make an appointment with a neurologist. You can feel a tingling sensation (either constantly or in response to touch) when nerve signals to the brain are partially blocked by a pinched nerve.

This sensation is called "numbness", or "paresthesia":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numbness

A neurologist can do an electrical study and find out where the nerve signals are being blocked.

It is probably some physical habit or activity that you are unaware of. And, thus, as others have suggested, it could well have to do with how you are holding your phone, for how long, etc. (Or something completely different.)
In my case, I was leaning my elbow on my desk.

$900 to find out that I was leaning my elbow on my desk, doh!
