On a recent trip abroad whilst taking my Nokia 5230 for the first time I noticed once it passed through the security scanner, with the phone switched on, when I went to use it the battery was completely flat. I had only charged it the night before. Exactly the same happened on my return journey. Obviously the phone was not on my person but in my hand luggage in the tray provided.
Fortunately I had my N78 with me and this was unaffected. Next time I go abroad I'll switch on my 5230 before it goes through the security scanner. Just wonder if that will make any difference. Has this happened to anyone else?
You would perhaps expect an increase in power consumption of device trying to maintain signal within airport confines but not to this degree.
