Question Case Magnet & Credit Cards, Problem?

Please Login to Remove!

newbie disclaimer, did my search on credit cards, magnets etc., nothing showed up on this topic

See this story about the Sidekick wiping out the credit card stripe here

Now it doesn't appear the magnet in the case (in my case, Fortte) isn't quite as strong, but it's still a magnet. I'm able to 'pull' an average paper clip up from my desktop from a height of 1" and when I put my phone on top of the microwave there's a noticeable pull.

So, do we have to be careful w/ regards to credit cards, work ids, etc. near the BB case(s)?
