wouldnt the magnet mess up your phone?

do not use this magnet method on an nokia N95 as it attracts the slide mechanism in the phone and so your screen turns sideways whenever its mounted. plus these magnets attract strongly to camerass in camera phones. i stopped using mine as i feared for the long livity of my auto focus on my phone.

I learned to drive on one of those. From dust to dust, they are the most ecologically friendly cars on the planet, fun to drive and will go places no chrome and painted SUV will ever see! Land Rover, the best 4x4xFar!! Happy Mudslinging!!

you can do this with a broken xbox or xbox parts, i used some shielding from the inside of the case and it is quite thin. not sure if it is as strong magneticaly, but you get the magnet and the part for your phone in one box.

I always get there in one piece - just a bit shaken and deaf. I could have bought a magnet, but I am pathalogically adverse to spending money. Pete
