Default BB 8700c and Metal Detector issues?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if there is going to be any negative side effects from having my BB 8700c go through a metal detector? Any BB for that matter. Thanks

The building that I work in has metal detectors at the front door. I have walked through the detectors hundreds of times with no ill effects.

Metal detectors or imaging machines (such as those in airports) won't negatively impact your electronics....
