Does activating flight mode help in reducing mobile radiation?
What do you mean by mobile radiation? Assuming you mean the electromagnetic radiation that a phone sends to the nearest tower, then yes, flight mode deactivates all these communications.
Thanks, but I meant the harmful radiation that harms the brain & the heart
They have, to my knowledge, never been shown to be harmful. But yes, if you are concerned about them, flight mode gets rid of most of the "radiation".
and adding to that which Rumborak said ....
but, you understand, your phone isn't going to be useable (as a phone) ? ... if you were considering using this mode for times other than when flying
Keep also in mind, it's all a question of magnitude. Even in flight mode the phone still emits signals; it is an electrical device after all. Specifically, when you listen to music through headphones, you are squeezing your head between two coils that radiate into your brain. Great sounding radiation though.
I know that for sure
so what was your thinking behind your original question ?
it doesn't help reduce it ..... it stops it completely
We just established that it still radiates, even in flight mode. Just at significantly lower level.
who is we and when ??
As far as I'm aware the transmitter is disabled ... do you have references to the contrary ?
from wiki ....
It's an electronic device. Unless you surround entirely with a metal box, it emits signals.
yeah but that's not the issue and not what flight mode is for
flight mode specifically turns off the transmitters and that is all the airlines are worried about
not the microwatts of random emission
Yes, but we don't know whether he cares about *all* radiation, or just the antenna radiation. The point is, switching to flight vastly reduces radiation. But it doesn't completely eliminate it. For that you have to pull the battery.
Take a look
and from that report ....
considering the millions and millions of cellphone users worldwide and now for a significant number of years .. without being an observable increase in cancers ....
what is your problem/worry ??
