    droid sets off store alarms?

    Has anyone else been accidentally setting off store alarms with their motorola droid as they walk in and out of stores that have magnetic security sensors? I haven't experimented with it much yet in fear of making a scene, but it's really quite annoying.

    Interesting, I was going out of a Burlington coat factory with my wife and daughter and it went off, but I kept going and didn't correlate it. Will see if it occurs at other stores, but from recollection I don't believe so, had been all over a few malls for holiday shopping...

    May have something to do with the magnet sensor that the Droid has.

    since the release date ive never incountered this problem how ever maybe if you walk real close to the sensor with maybe your phone in your pocket it could, but rarely if so.

    This was happening to me while Christmas shopping. I set off half the stores in the mall. I kept waiting to get tackled by security. Anyone have any idea what would cause this? Definitely need a fix.

    Magnets don't set off store alarms. A circuit board can though, if it has traces of just the right length. That's most likely it. I haven't had it happen though. Some of the early alarms would trigger from car remotes easily, but I suspect like everything else they keep refining them to avoid false alarms.
