    Looks like my phone's (EDIT: MotoRAZR v3-whatever) in the safe list! I'm glad to hear that.

    My dad can't use a cellphone for very long at all before he gets what he describes as 'intense feeling of pressure' on the whole side of his head where the phone is. He's sensitive to stuff like that, but it effects everybody nonetheless.

    I've bookmarked those links, too. Thanks for posting!

    Mine is 1.13 (LG VX 8700).

    I don't use it that much, and when I can I use speakerphone

    You can also get dangerous radiation from being in the sun, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't go outside.

    Of course with the sun when you have an idea of how much is too much, and when you need SPF. Harder to say with phones--I guess in a morose way we're all guinea pigs....

    Does this mean I can take off my tinfoil hat when I'm on the phone?

    Finally.

    I don't feel any different when I use my mobile but when it's just my trouser pocket I can feel a slight burning sensation. All except my Razr. My Nokia and Siemen phones were the worst.

    No, if you do that the little green men can hear your phone conversations.

    I have an iPhone which looks like it's in the middle. Glad I don't have one of those BB Curves. Previous phone was a Motorola SLVR and I'm glad I got rid of that too.

    Finally, Motorola can finally claim to be at the top of the pack of something. They took 5 out of 10 spots.

    Well if you count the two SLVRs as different phones. ;)

    they were different. just similar form factor, and even that was changed a bit between the two.

    I'd be more relieved about the fact that you no longer have to wear tinfoil underwear when its in your pocket, that stuff chafes like crazy.

    I've stopped using my RAZR for two reasons.

    1. I can't afford to pay the bill anymore.

    2. It makes a really low pitched buzzing noise when you hold it up to your ear, and frankly I'm terrified of it.:eek:
