RFID is also interupted by aluminum foil. When I want to end a phone call without finishing the conversation, wrapping aluminum foil around the phone blocks the signal and the call gets dropped. Assuming that credit cards don't get transferred to cell phones and the point be made moot, metal wallets might become fashionable.


Why would you " want to end a phone call without finishing the conversation,"


You want me to return to where? Sorry, our connection is breaking up. *snap* *crackle* INT QBF, over . . . hhhhhhhhhhhsssssssssss

Using a metal shield is the cheapest and most effective method of preventing reading of RFID cards and much cheaper than any electronics. Someone will sell a wallet which incorporates a flexible metal shield in it or a flexible metallic wallet insert or pouch. Purse manufacturers will probably start manufacturing them with metallic shielding too.

Yeah this always happens to me, I can't understand why, but what really bothers me is I don't know what to do to avoid the fact.

I think this is more complicated than how you make it looks. You see, I'm not a computer expert, and for that reason I prefer to look for a professional helper to fix it or make a change... but thanks anyway.
