Frequently Asked Questions
* Drop your phone into a MIAmobi™ SilentPocket™ for instant silence while driving, in meetings, at the movies, or during actual face-to-face conversations. Your messages, text and emails arrive safely when you take your phone out of the SilentPocket™.
Q: Why MIAmobi™? Why don’t just switch my phone to silent mode? Or just turn it off?
A: 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 or report your location. Slipping your phone in a MIAmobi™ SilentPocket™ creates an electromagnetic barrier between the phone and the cellular network. You are smiply off grid.
Q: When I take my phone out of the SilentPocket™, what do I see?
A: As your phone finds service again, you will receive your voicemail, text messages and emails.
Q: Why should I be concerned about the GPS function? Nobody is following me.
A: You’re probably right; however location based services are piping hot right now, and just getting hotter. We expect them to come to a full boil in the next few years; parents tracking their kids, employers tracking employees, companies using your everyday habits (where you shop etc) to market their wares. It’s a privacy issue; not everyone feels it’s intrusive, but for those who do MIAmobi™ products can help.
Q: If I put my phone inside a MIAmobi™ SilentPocket™ will it still search for signals?
A: Inside the MIAmobi™ SilentPocket™, your telephone will switch to dormant mode, and will immediately return to service when it is removed, allowing instant access to any calls, emails or texts that you missed. No Signal in and no signal out.
Q: If anybody calls when my phone is “MIA” will they hear it ring, or will it go straight to voicemail?
A: They hear it ring, before going to your recorded message.
Q: Are there any other benefits of owning a MIAmobi™ product?
A: MIAmobi™ products are designed for personal data protection. You can be assured that your I.D card, credit cards and Passport will not be “interrogated” remotely.
Q: Will the SilentPocketTM protect against Radiation?
A: YES Radio Frequency (RF) waves are actually varying electric and magnetic fields. The MIAmobi / SilentPockets” are lined with a high quality RF shielding material which shorts out the electric and magnetic fields so that incoming signals are reflected and outgoing high-frequency electromagnetic radiation (energy) is trapped inside the SilentPocketTM.
Q: Will my alarm still work while my phone is in the SilentPocket™?
A: MIAmobi’s™ SilentPocket™ will not silence your phone’s alarm.
Q: How does the SilentPocket™ sanitize my devices?
A: Only the SilentPocket™ that use antibacterial silver lining, sanitizes your cell phone and other electronic devices. MIAmobi™ products provide simple solution to a high tech problem!
Q: Um, why don’t you just silence your phone? Or turn it off?
A: Because your phone still on the grid even when it’s turned off. So “they” can still see where you are. We don’t know who “they” are, but we assume they are creepy and are either trying to sell us things or know our whereabouts. We’re not keen on either. Also, by putting your phone in a MIAmobi™, you create a physical barrier between you and your phone. Out of sight out of mind. And if you want a break from your phone that is valuable. It’s like when you’re trying to eat healthy you don’t put the cookies on the counter. You hide them in the hard to reach cupboard.
