Will keeping a cell phone in an Altoids tin damage it?? Answered
Hi. i just got a cell phone, and since i have very little money, i have to keep it safe and working for quite a while because i wont be able to afford a replacement. To help keep the phone safe, i made a phone case from an altoids case, covered in leather with a belt loop and padding on the inside. I was wondering if keeping the phone entirely surrounded by metal could have any ill affects on it. I understand that it reduces signal by quite a lot, bit will it actually harm the phone?
