Frequently Asked Questions - we've got the answers

Silent Pocket is a brand and product line of wallets, bags and cases. Our core products are called Faraday cages, which act as an impenetrable shield between your mobile device and radio frequency signals, which are emitted and received by your device. Once inside, your device is completely sealed and acts as a Faraday cage, which blocks ALL signals to and from your wireless device(s).

The Faraday cage was invented by Michael Faraday and is in laymen's terms, a metallic cage that uses its conductive properties as a, well, conductor, and it redistributes the exterior electromagnetic charges  in such a way that the interior and exterior fields cancel each other out.

No. Silent Pocket products do not damage wireless devices. Service is temporarily interrupted in a passive way, and resumed in 10-20 seconds when the phone is taken out of the case, just as it does when entering or exiting areas where there is no reception at all.

Some phones may still be active even though they appear to be turned off. Even though the phone seems to be off, it may still be able to remember and/or report your location. Slipping your phone into a Silent Pocket creates an electromagnetic barrier between the phone and the cellular network. You're completely off the grid.

When your phone regains service from "dormant mode", it will receive all missed data including emails, voicemails, texts, notifications, etc. Sometimes it is handy to switch from airplane mode to active to speed up the process of regaining service

Chances are that's correct, but one can never be too careful in this day and age; and most importantly, you can protect your children's whereabouts from predators as well.

Your telephone will switch to dormant mode once it attempts to find signal for a short amount of time. In fact, leaving your device inside for extended periods of time (ie. overnight) conserves battery life significantly.

Your phone rings through normally for the caller and takes them to voicemail. Once you remove your phone, you will receive any voicemails left, but will not see missed calls.

Yes, your phone’s alarm will not be silenced and you'll still be able to use the functions of set reminders on the internal time clock.  The sleeve is not soundproof.

Yes, in addition to fully blocking signals and giving your life more privacy, security and health our products protect against identity theft, scanning and lifting of personal information from RFID chips found in credit cards, passports, ID badges, etc.  They also have anti-radiation properties to shield against EMF, EMR and negative health related issues.

Yes, Radio Frequency (RF) waves are actually varying electric and magnetic fields. Silent Pocket products are lined with a high quality RF shielding material which shorts out the electric and magnetic fields so that incoming signals are reflected, deflected, and outgoing high-frequency electromagnetic radiation

You have to unsnap the 3-fold in the fob guard, open up said folds, then locate the pouch inside that contains the shielding material.  Your smart key goes inside the shielding material of that pouch and gets snapped shut (see picture below).  Once inside, your key will no longer unlock your doors or start your ignition.  (if key signal has been established with certain make/models prior to placement in key fob, ignition may still work). Please note that simply folding the 3-fold around the key without placing it inside the pouch and snapping it shut will result in signal leakage.  This will make the product to appear to not work, and has happened to many of our customers already.

Even more so than water, frequencies can leak out of the tiniest of spaces.  That said, you have to tightly roll down the bag at least 3x (5x is optimal), and secure the clips together.  You will then notice the bag is air-proof as well as water- and signal-proof as well.  To test its signal-blocking capabilities, simply drop a smart phone inside, roll up tightly as described above, and call it from another phone.  When it does not ring, you'll know it's working. This is for the 5 liter, 10 liter and Backpack.

It is stated that we look at our phones more than 80 times a day, which in no way is healthy. We believe in disconnecting and preserving your headspace for positive mental health as well as the effects from EMF and EMR radiation.

Yes! A great time to disconnect from your phone, white light and the feeling of being responsive to a device. By placing your phone inside our Faraday Sleeve at night you can instantly block all harmful radiation to your body/ head and not be distracted by alerts. By implementing this into your nightly routine (unless you're on standby for children or need your phone) you can gain more restful sleep and still use your phones internal alarm if you choose. Go beyond airplane mode at night and adopt a Faraday Sleeve so you can sleep how humans are meant to sleep.
