    My Nokia Mural, which I have had since mid-December, magnetized during the beginning of January. The whole phone is not magnetic, only the bottom grate-like area is magnetic. I can pick up paper clips and other things with it. The phone seems to leave a residual magnetic charge in the items it touches, because they become magnetized themselves for a short while. Has anyone else heard of this or have an explanation of why this would happen? I think it's kind of cool but also bizarre.

    I've never heard of that happening before, wow. Is the back cover metal? (I'm not familiar with the phone) can you take it off and see if just the back cover is magnetic?

    The back cover is stainless steel but non-magnetic. With the back cover off, the only part of the phone that picks things up is still the bottom speaker looking area. I'm not sure what material that area is made of. My guess is an anodized aluminum which would be non-magnetic. I don't know what is inside the phone behind the grate, probably a speaker or microphone.

    hrm, speakers have magnets in them - that could be the culprit.
