    Today i had an accident at security check,
    Dumb security guy put my 9780 though X-ray scanner. Moment I saw I got so furious and got angry.
    But since my 9780 was already came out of scanner…. But I took battery and sim out instantly…
    Now…few queries…
    1. Is there any potential risk to device circuitry or memory or battery of my 9780?
    2. After coming home I inserted sim and battery and things seems fine, so is it going to be problem after some time ?

    Any suggestions and comments are most welcome…

    When travelling with my 9700 I let the security guys put it through. I have not had any problems, only an OS6 memory leak (which I believe to be my carrier) and a messed up screen (blank white) which resulted in it being sent to RIM for repairs. However I don't believe this was because of the x-ray scan because it has happened to 4 people I know now, all with 9700's.

    Hope this helps.

    X-Ray machines have no effect on devices, at all. People run their laptops, phones, iPads..etc through em every single day.

    I sure hope this isn't an issue! I travel a lot and I've never had a problem with sending my BlackBerry through security.

    I really don't think X-ray scanning machines damage phones. Could you imagine how many lawyers and court employees would have damaged BlackBerrys considering they have to put their things through an X-ray machine every time they enter a court house....

    I really didn't know people are actually afraid of putting their devices thru Xray scanners.

    i put my 9780 thru every time i go thru airport security. its never a problem. its only a problem when you have film, and even then its only for certain speed film. stop being a nancy. theres no harm done.

    Well, X rays do not cause any harm to any cellphones. At least immediately... I've been subjecting my phones to all sort of security x rays and stuff and so far they have been all working good.

    I travel on a weekly basis for the last 3 1/2 years and have never had a problem with my bb, labtop or any electronics going through the x-ray scanner.. Dont worry about it, pick it up and enjoy where ever you are headed

    I had X-rays taken last month and they'd shot 2 before I realized I had it in the pocket of my Johnny.

    I later used mine while having a CT scan done. Hospital Wi-Fi was awesome. Didn't bother my Style a whit.
