    I'll say yes. My old phone had a magnet holder, which got close to the speaker, which eventually destroyed the phones ability to hear.

    If it does, don't you think manufacturers would not include them with some models? As long as it isn't a strong magnet you should be fine. Also depends if the phone uses a magnetic sensor for some sliders which may confuse it.

    Wirelessly posted (Nokia N73: ReqwirelessWeb/3.2 NokiaN73-1/3.0705.1.0.31)

    I have one for my n73 i think its safe cause the n73's screen is a bit sinked into the phone itself so no physical contact happens between the mag an screen.

    The magnets, afaik, don't damage the phone, but they do interfere with them. especially sliders and twisters. They use magnets to know when the slides or twists are closed or open. I have also heard rumors that the magnetic field interferes with bluetooth - but I don't know how true the bluetooth thing is...?

    I found some PERFECT VELCRO cases (no magnets at all) that fit N95, 3250, 6265, N70 and I'm sure others too.. Velcro cases are not easy to find anymore! EVERYTHING uses MAGNETS! I bought some extra's for HoFo'ers... see my sig for the link, or search my name in GSM FORSALE area... The cases may fit other phones, but those models listed I actually have in the house so I can 100% vouch for those I'm using one on my N95 right now .

    I found these looking for one for myself... and EVERYWHERE I went they only had magnetic cases... so when I finally found some with Velcro - I bought a bunch of them - in case anyone else was having the same problem finding one like I did. (so sorry).

    I can look around and see if I can find one that would fit my N90, I think the N93 would be about the same size....?
