    So I don't recall any of my other phone's speakers having a magnetic pull like the pre does, can anyone else confirm that it is awfully magnetic? I tested to see if my centro does it, but its outta juice and i lost the charger... I know that speakers have magnets in them, just didn't know it would be this powerful. I just set it on the table and had 2 bobby pins stuck to it when i went to answer a call....

    the girl seems to think the more she leaves laying around the house, the easier it will be to find one when she needs one....my vacuum disagrees

    The stronger the magnet, the louder the speaker is able to be without distortion.

    What phone is louder: The Pre or the Centro?

    Pre. But in fairness my centros speakers were never the same after an incident with a program that increased the volume past palms original settings....

    I hear ya...those things get all over the house. But yeah, the speaker definitely seems more magnetic than my previous phones. I don't have a touchstone, but this would probably make it even worse.

    You probably just figured it out then.

    And your speaker was probably never the same because you pushed it beyond it's maximum limit.

    uh oh, does this mean I shouldn't place the pre on top of my wallet? could it be strong enough to mess up my credit cards?

    i doubt it. if you're that worried. go to a hotel. and ask the front desk to run a demo key for you. sit the phone near it, by it, on top of it, etc a few times. and then ask the front desk agent to swipe it in their machine again to see if it's still valid. i seriously doubt they'll have a problem with it, as long as you don't ask for a room number. they can run dummy cards, and re use it when you're done.

    hotel keys use the same magnetic strips as your normal debit/credit (with the exception of american express cards.. those lil suckers are durable, lol).

    Damn that lil sucker is strong. I used a bottle cap instead of bobby pins and it stuck right to it.

    Hotel card keys are not NEARLY as strong as creditcards. Meaning they are WAY easier to erase.
