Is It Safe To Keep My 10yo Keep His Cell Phone Near His Head While He Sleeps
Is it safe to sleep with cell phone in bed for alarm purposes? Not directly under pillow, but in the bed in general? Risk of cancers, (i.E. Breast)?

Is it bad to put a cell phone to your head if it is searching for coverage or there is no service?
Rarely I use an alarm to wake me up at midnight (when needed) and I go to bed around 10pm. Why my cell phone can't wake me up? Am I deaf during sleep?

Woke up this a.M. And found that my cell phone had been under my pillow all night. Should i be concerned about health risk from accidentally sleeping on it? Mom died of brain cancer, so i worry.
No risk: I wouldn't be concerned at all. The whole two-decades story of scared from cell phones and brain cancer showcases the crazy results that bad studies get from recall bias. Tell people that something causes cancer and they'll remember using it. One big study showed more cancer on the side opposite to where the folks held the cell phones.
