  • I doubt this is true but why would you let a toddler chew on your phone? It is not a toy or teething ring.

  • If they had those things were on the key pad phones would be dangerious for us to use as well. But there are studies that suggest not letting small childen play with cell phones because of radiation exposure, chocking hazards, and BPA exposure. As far as the radiation goes just be sure the phone is off while the child is playing with it. The chocking well.. Watch the kid with the phone. And the BPA I would suggest not letting them chew the phone all day long every day.. but if the kid gets a hold of it and puts it in their mouth they WILL NOT die or be poisoned. (Unless you let the kid go around chewing on the battery)
