    I looked at the FCC stuff on line and was trying to determine the SAR. Anyone familar with the forms able to tell what the SAR value is? Are the 9900 and 9930 different? Remember the 9000 had a fairly high SAR.

    Not too many hear worried about the SAR. Heck many no longer agree that it is important! So much positive AND negative facts . . . . it is almost like Gore's Global Warming!

    Foil hats are UL. You need copper nipple rings.

    I remember a funny thread about SAR ratings a couple years back and blackberry was right up there leading the pack. NoOneCares apparently.
    I use bluetooth exclusively for all phone calls so I know I'm helping immensely there. Ding dong fries are done...

    actually you are wrong.the 9700 not the 9000 had the highest Sar rating.they were saying not to talk on the 9700 for long periods of time due to radiation emitting leading to cancer risk.

    If SAR ratings are a concern, use a bluetooth headset. They aren't geeky anymore.

    Sorry but the crowd I travel with condier them to be very geeky!

    Just think now you have inserted a small radiation emitting transmitter DIRECTLY INTO YOUR EAR!

    Most the people I see using BT headsets are grocery shopping on the weekend making sure thezs getz allz theirs free weekend minutes!

    I'm sure the SAR for radiation emitted by a Bluetooth radio (if anything) is negligible compared to the radios of a smartphone.

    Besides, if you're worried about looking geeky, you could go with a wired microphone or stereo bluetooth headset.

    We are exposed to radiation everyday. There's more harm walking outside than using a cellphone. I wouldn't be too concerned about the SAR rating on phones. As what others suggested, use a handsfree device.

    I have a friend who is an engineer that works in the RF field and says that todays newer cars have 5-10 times more radiation that any cell phone we are exposed to and it starts from the second you turn on the ignition.

    We can't use RF jam detection for clients with new beemers. Our stuff goes nuts. You don't need to turn on the ignition. Just opening the door gets those things going.
