Some Extra Thoughts On Smart Phones

For quite some time we’ve insisted that WiFi routers & Dect cordless home phones are the big enemy in electrosmog terms – if you stay at home they’re both blasting you constantly.

We’ve always said that mobile phones only radiate when you’re actually speaking on them. A regular mobile will talk to the mast for maybe 10 seconds every 15 minutes in standby.

However, after playing around with a Google 3G smartphone for 6 months now (and owning an electrosmog detector), i’ve come to the conclusion that smartphones fully loaded with various apps are just about as bad as a WiFi router stuck in your pocket – this is bad, very bad.

On my own Google Nexus One that means Google Mail checking in every minute, and every other network aware application doing the same.

Our heartfelt advice is to make sure you’re on the network that gets the easiest signal. Compare Sims from different providers and then get a PAC code and switch as soon as you can. If your smartphone is constantly switching between GSM & 3G that’s no good for you, at all.

Once you’ve done that you need to turn off all the apps that are transmitting data in the background. Googlemail will constantly check for new mail – but on my Android OS phone it won’t if I turn off ‘Background Sync’.

Also, the latest versions of Android support setting up your phone as a portable WiFi hotspot. Please make sure this is turned off again, once you’ve finished using it, otherwise your leg will be getting full of unwanted RF signal. Better still, stick your phone in Aircraft mode.

If you don’t hold the phone next to your head to hold conversations – or keep it in a trouser pocket – this advice probably doesn’t matter too much.

Further away from your body the better. Every time the distance from your body doubles the absorbed signal halves.
