Urban myth , RFID and cellphones work in different RF bands In Korea and Japan almost all cellphones have NFC chips used for e-cash and the two bands don't interfere.

Don't know about car keys and keyless entries man but my magnetic strip on my hotel key has gone bad twice just by keeping it on the cell phone coupled with the heat in the car.

My brother owns a Nissan Altima 3.5SE since 2008. He confirmed that in spite of leaving his cellphone with the key all the time, such an issue has not occurred.

If it happens so, he'll sue Nissan

That is simple principle of physics that is electromagnatism

RFID uses unlicensed ISM band so does not interfere with CDMA or GSM/UMTS signals. T-Money in Korea uses RFID and is available on cellphones to buy subway/bus tickets make taxi payments and to make purchases at convenience outlets.

I too have this doubt so always carry my mobile phone in a hip pouch and the keys of my Alto in my pocket just to be on the safe side. It is common knowledge that mobile phones should not be kept near magnetic media, so the same logic should apply to the i-cat key as well.

Not to sound repetitive but i-cat key uses RFID and it is not magnetic media to store information.
