John in Suffolk asked:
If you put your home phone number into a mobile phone and press enter, then put the mobile phone in a microwave, you can successfully make a connection and call your house phone. If the oven is supposed to protect you from the microwaves inside, how do they get out and make the phone call?
I have tried this at my girlfriend's house and it did actually cut out the phone connection, so the microwave oven does keep some of the microwaves coming out of the phone, inside the microwave (oven). The frequency of the microwaves from a phone is not the same as the microwaves you use for cooking, if they were the same, then every time you turn the microwave on you wouldn't be able to talk on the phone, because you would get horrible interference.
