    Hi,

    Unless "near" is defined as close enough to touch a conductor, and such contact takes place while answering, it can't happen. Otherwise, the mobile phone would have to have an output such that an ionization path formed. Since it puts out milliwatts vice megawatts, that won't happen. Sounds like an urban legend.
