    Does having a magnet near your cellphone affect your phone? I am not talking about really small holster magnets.

    I was at the library today and I was in close vicinity to the electromagnet they use to magnetize books which led me to wonder if it actually affects your phone long term.

    I have been near some really heavy duty magnets at work and they have never messed up my storm but honestly from a tech stand point I counldn't answer your question for sure hope that helps some.

    Strong magnets do not affect phones, computers, hard drives, etc. So no need to worry.

    Super strong electromagnets that have the ability to affect aluminum are another story entirely, avoid those. Especially if you have metal fillings or metal pins anywhere in your body.
