    So, Michael Jackson got the first Treo 650 all the way back in the 80s? All Hail the King of Pop!!!

    So the radiation level on the 650 is pretty higher than most others on the market?

    Shouldn't this be a concern?

    If your network uses the 850 band yes it is.. the others are heaps lower..

    I am on Rogers GSM/GPRS network and will be ordering mine today. This I believe uses the 850 band.

    either way, it is allways smart to use the hands free kit if you are on the phone for an extended time..

    U mean BT headset?
    wouldn't that still emit radiation?

    I was refering to the wired one (comes with it AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK) $but$ $a$ $BT$ $one$ $would$ $do$ $too$, $it$ $has$ $heaps$ $less$ $radiation$ $than$ $the$ $unit$ $itself$..

    thanks
    appreciate the comments....gonna do some searching on which BT headset is best to use with 650

    I was thinking a bluetooth headset probably wouldnt emit any more radiation than a cordless phone.

    Cordless maybe, mobile no..
    Think about it, BT spans 10-15 meters, GSM hunderds of meters to the closest basestation..

    Besides the power the frequenty is important too, not sure which one is worst there..

    Safest way is to use a wired headset..

    I also read that a wired headset can make things worse. It can act as an conduit for the radiation right to your head.

    So bottom line is don't make long calls on your mobile..

    I guess I am in trouble... My calls usually span 40 minutes or more, even before I had the 650...

    Wired headsets CAN'T transmit radiation from the phone. Radiation, by definition, is radiated - not carried via any sort of conduit. Just picture trying to send the heat from your oven to a pot across the room using a wire. It's the same principle. Keep in mind, too, that while the 650 is on the high side, it's still considered within "safe" tolerance. Now to argue whether or not the FCC can adequately define "safe"; that's a whole other subject ;-)

    Can anyone tell me what the SAR for Sprint's 650 would be? And what frequency do they operate on?
  16. #36  
    If i remember correctly, the Sprint SAR was 1.43 to the head, but under 1.0 to the body. It operates on the 1900 CDMA frequency

    i am going to use a bt ear piece or the wired one. the blue tooth ear piece should be safe

    So, I guess I am not worried like the rest of you, but could someone tell me why they really care what the output is if it is inside what is considered safe levels? My guess is most who are commenting on it actually know nothing about the " danger" of such radiation levels. Also if anyone knows, isn't the downlink radiation going to be much hotter anyway, and there is nothing you can do about that. Even if you are not using a cell phone you are still getting hit...

    What say you? It is true, the output power of a cell site is much stranger than that of a cell phone. Of course your proximity to the radiation source makes a huge difference. I am far from an expert on radiation, I just know I am getting hit with is all day long - like it or not. Anyone here, really know anything about it? Or is everyone just looking at the number on the cnet page (it was cnet.com right?) and thinking "geewiz that number IS bigger than that number"? Also it is radiation, but it is not ionized radiation. Once again, it would be nice if someone had something useful to add, because a number on a page tells me nothing. I'm not trying to be a jerk or say anything bad about anyone or their oppinion - just saying what I am thinking. I really haven't heard anything to make me worry about this yet. I'm more worried about the second hand smoke I got off the guy standing outside smoking while I was in the park this afternoon.
