Default Blackberry radiation level!

Please Login to Remove!

Guys, I am new to the whole blackberry world so excuse me if I am being silly here. I currently own a blackberry bold, and a friend of mine told me that blackberry radiation level is higher than any other phone on the market because it is designed for people who wants to stay connected anywhere and anytime so it keeps on searching for internet connection. that is why the radiation level is higher and why RIM provided the holster to keep the radiation minimal. I was just wondering if this is indeed correct. let me know, guys!

This may be of some help.

Default Blackberry Radiation Level

I have heard two theories here. Take your pick.

One is that the higher radiation levels are only in US models and a Canadian plot to induce cancers south of the border.

The other is that this is a plot to induce cancer in corporate America, the largest users of Blackberries.

Come on, get a life and stop worrying about radiation levels. If you are still worried, get an organic Blackberry (I am sure someone is selling these).

Speaking of organic BlackBerries, when are they usually in season?

We are all going to die eventually, and there are a lot of other things in the world that will kill you faster than a mobile phone. Don't worry about it.

BlackBerrys are still of a level of wattage that mitigates dangerous radiation, regardless of how constantly they "stay connected".

The old 3 watt installed car phones and bag phones were more of a threat.

10 years from we will all have brain tumors..

We will be in the hospital PIN messaging each other

Everything around us has radiation, granted the BB is a bit higher then other things but hey what can do? The air around us is polluted but we keep breathing.

I wouldn't worry about it.

I suspect we could die from worry, anxiety and fear before we would die from using a BlackBerry. Fear and worry cause the body to create destructive biochemicals that are bad for our immune system, contribute to high blood pressure and so on.

I heard rum and chocolate help that. So I'm going to live damn near forever.

If Rum is a cure-all, I hate to say I will be around forever as well JW
