Better watch out which phones you put up to your head next time

I see a trend that low phones are prodominately gsm band and the high phones are mostly CDMA bands. Is this just by chance or are CDMA phones higher in radiation than gsm phones?? Anyone know??

I am so sick and tired of these environmental groups trying to scare people into thinking their cell phone is going to give them brain cancer. It has never been determined that cell phone radiation in such minute amounts cause cancer. Don't you think that a microwave oven would give you a bigger blast of radiation than a cell phone. Its not lead shielded you know. After all it cooks food with microwave radiation that is 1000 times more powerful than a cell phone's transmitter, yet surprise they are still on the market and have been for 40 years. Stop propagating this BS. And by the way, don't you think your hand would get a tumor before your brain would, its a lot closer to that transmitter than your brain is.

Yeah these phones emit the worst radiation, but they are still safe SAR limits according to the FCC which has stricter standards than nearly every country in the world when it comes to consumer safety. But, I bet these phones are also the ones no one complains about signal issues being low, whereas I bet the ones on the left are typical to have low signal... I may be wrong, so someone correct me if they have experience with the handset on the left, because I know people that own some of the ones on the right and they don't ahve problems.

Although they're not on the list here, Samsung CDMA phones generally rate pretty low on radiation. And they also tend to be the most-often returned because of poor reception. And nobody ever brings back Motorolas or Blackberry Curves because they couldn't make a call.

That is so true mate weak radiation is more like not owing a phone is much better. Uh where is the iPhone 3GS, PALM PRE?
