Myths about common things in our have myths as tidbits about them are spread through word of mouth and are distorted as time goes on. Smartphones are a perfect breeding ground for myths as they are common and smartphone “life hacks” are nearly everywhere. Smartphone myths extend to nearly every aspect of your phone from quick fixes to ease of access tips. And since most adults have a smartphone, it’s not hard to see why so many tips have arisen throughout the years.

A few myths about smartphones are: that you can cook an egg with radiation from your phone; this is technically true, you would need 7,000 smartphones to do it, that your phone is dirtier than a toilet seat; this is actually true as Americans touch their phones as much as 52 times a day, spreading germs through each touch, that removing your SIM card will prevent tracking; this one isn’t true as if your phone still has power from the battery (on or off) it could be tracked by the authorities, but you can prevent tracking by simply turning on airplane mode, disabling GPS, shutting down your phone, or removing the battery, and that phones interfere with hospitals, planes, and gas stations;

the FAA doesn’t want to take any risks about planes, so while your phone doesn’t actually interfere with the aircraft it is best to leave it on airplane mode, one study showed that medical errors and injury are 6 times more likely to result from delayed communication rather than interference, so that means that having your phone off in a hospital setting could be harmful rather than helpful, and despite warnings to never use your phone at the pump, cell signals cannot spark a gasoline explosions, though it is still best to heed those warnings and leave your phone in your pocket.

Some of the basics of smartphone life hacks are also not true. Using a screen protector in some cases can be worse than not having one. Today’s smartphone glass, Gorilla Glass, can resist a knife to its surface, but if you drop your phone a lot, or you are going to the beach, a screen protector is not a bad idea. Drying your phone in rice after it falls in water can actually damage your phone than it helps. Rice can only absorb moisture that it comes in direct contact with – and if this method works at all, the starch in the rice can gum up your phone’s sensitive electronics.
