Some say turn it off.  I say don't take it with you!

If you have ever found one at the beach you will know how BIG the signal is from a cell phone.   It can be down 2 feet.  What pocket is not going to air test with a cell phone in it?

I take a flip phone out hunting. and I dont turn it on unless I need It. not just for interference, I have other reasons like tracking.

Oh BTW another nice thing about the cheapy flip phones is if you just take out the battery,Easy drop in drop out ,it really turns them off. other wise you'll get pings as the phone pings the towers even if OFF.

Great video. I'll be going airplane mode from now on. Saves battery and can still use the GPS function.

I just shut mine off when using the PI or EQX 800 and all my other detectors. I find ya still hear interference when the phone occasionally checks signals or.... :89:
