Worried About 5G? How To Tell The Difference Between Phones That Have 5G Mmwave EMF And How To Turn 5G Off

There's real 5G and then there's 5G without the FAST millimeter wave or EMF. 

Because AT&T and other big telecom have been declaring "5G" for years and even displaying the 5G E icon next to your smartphone bars you may have thought your phone had been a 5G phone since 2019, but actually it wasn't.  It was just marketing. The 5G E in the photo below means its 5G evolution, not 5G millimeter waves.


5g e real 5g phone signal

Real 5G Is Here...

By "real" we mean the 5G wave that was supposed to power 5G in the first place!  The millimeter (or mmWave) antenna is now in smartphones. 

So, all smartphones have WiFi antenna, Bluetooth antenna and cell signal antenna. Each antenna exposes you to a different frequency on the Electromagnetic Frequency Spectrum.

 This iPhone 11 is the Last and Latest iPhone WITHOUT the 5g millimeter wave antenna!  It has ZERO mmWave EMF exposure ❤️

 

Now there are new phones that have an antenna that receive and send the dreaded mmWave which uses a whole new section of the EMF spectrum. 

no 5g phone

New true 5G phones will expose your body to a different kind of wave than you've probably ever been exposed to before. The mmWave broadcasts at higher frequency than cell, WiFi or Bluetooth signals.

Later in this article we'll show you how to disable the 5G antenna.

Imagine x-rays vs WiFi signal: Those are both on the EMF radio frequency band, but they effect our bodies differently when we're exposed to them.

All Cellphones Are Safer in a Signal Blocking Faraday Bag

The mmWaves are High Frequency Radio Waves which sit at between 24GHz and 100GHz in what's called the EMF Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum. 

This is the 1st 5G mmWave meter that is available to the public! 

[This graph was created by Gadget Hacks]

I like the clarity of this graph showing all the different radio frequency ranges that the telecom industry has labeled as 5G. Our 5G Guide explains how the industry actually combined and blasted our environment with more and more radio waves all under the label of "5G".  But the "promise" and original reason for 5G was devices and antennas that utilized the mmWave.

  • 3G and 4G cell signals use 800 to 1800 Mhz
  • Bluetooth operates in the 2.4 Ghz frequency
  • WiFi uses 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz

Some people think that they have 5G WiFi router when they see that 5.8 GHz on  their router. Nope, that's not true 5G. It has to use 24 GHz or higher  frequency range, where the millimeter wave lives to be 5G.

Our 5G guide goes into detail on how the millimeter wave moves differently and the potential health effects.

The 5G Guide also goes through why the men (honestly almost exclusively male decision makers) thought that expanding our wireless exposures to an even higher frequency waveform was even necessary. This is especially poignant now that many tech reporters are balking at the performance of 5G mmWave's - but that hasn't stopped the industry from putting this new 5G EMF in phones and laptops and blasting from the antenna on our streets.

If you want to save your body from a phone that exposes you to the 5G mmWave, stay away from new smartphones.

Where is the 5g Antenna?
The 5G Millimeter Wave Antenna Is This Groove Pictured Above


Your iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 Have 5G mmWave Antenna

He believes that Apple's iPhone 12 mmWave antenna only sends out the millimeter wave when it's necessary with Apples Smart Data Mode. Razdan said,

"I believe Apple tweaks the working of the mmWave antenna using software in order for it to send mmWave signals only when 5G speeds are required and for all other times the phone switches to LTE."

 

The 5G MmWave Antenna is Always In The Phone, But Apple Has Allowed the Ability To Turn Off The 5G Millimeter Wave.

You can disable the 5G millimeter wave antenna from sending or receiving the mmWave signal. Apparently Apple was concerned that using the full 5G capabilities on the iPhone 12 would drain the battery too quickly so it allowed this option in the operating system software and which let users to turn it off.  

We don't know if this capability will remain in place for later iOS updates.  The fact remains that the millimeter wave antennas will remain in the phones.  There are NO 5G mmWave antennas in iPhone 11 or earlier.

Here's How To Disable 5G mmWave Receiving on iPhone

  1. Go To Settings
  2. Select Cellular Data Settings
  3. Choose Auto 5G (This allows you to use 5G only when it will not significantly reduce battery life) 
  4. Choose 5G On (This allows you to use 5G all the way - when it's available)
  5. Choose LTE (this disables the receiver from allowing data through the 5G millimeter wave)

Again, once the 5G antenna is in the phone, the software will control if the antenna is sending or recieiving the new high frequency EMF.

We're not sure if the 5G mmWave connection in all Androids is always on and broadcasting the millimmeter wave when there is a 5G mmWave antenna nearby, but we do know that Samsung and Googe Pixel have options in settings, just like Apple, to disable using the 5G MmWave in order to save battery.

How To Disable 5G MmWave Receiving On Android Phones:

Samsung Galaxy Phones:

  • Go to Settings
  • Select Connections
  • Select Mobile Networks
  • Select Network mode
  • Choose from connection options (including 5G)
  • Tap 4G LTE

Google Pixel 5:

  • Go to  Settings
  • Choose Network and Internet
  • Choose Mobile Networks
  • Choose Preferred Network Type (You should see both 5G and 4G LTE and perhaps 3G and 2G as options)
  • Choose any LTE

Here's What To Look For In The Specs To Make Sure It Really Is A 5G Millimeter EMF Phone

This is the specifications listing on the Apple iPhone 13 product page. You'll see two details that key you into the fact that 5G millimeter wave antennas will be exposing you to 5G EMF.  The details are in Bold below.

iPhone 13 Model A2483

  • 5G NR (Bands n1, n2, n3, n5, n7, n8, n12, n20, n25, n28, n29, n30, n38, n40, n41, n48, n66, n71, n77, n78, n79)

  • Ultra Wideband chip for spatial awareness8
  • NFC with reader mode
  • Express Cards with power reserve

 Is the mmWave harmful to health?

Well, it is a radio frequency EMF and technically it sits above WiFi, microwave ovens, and cellphone signals, but below infrared radiation, and there have not been any real world studies on humans exposed to the information (data carrying high frequency millimeter waves).  But still, scientists are using generated signals in controlled environments to study what happens when other living things are exposed to the signal alone. Others are warning that the Precautionary Principle should be exercised. It has not been by the way. You can see our research section for study details.

The 5G mmWave Means More Tech For Our Tech!

These high frequency 5G signals carry lots of data, but don't go very far. Instead
of going through walls like cell signals do and tend to bounce off of buildings.
So, the great people that work in telecom have added even more tech to the
technology to try and get it to work better. That means massive MIMO and Beamforming
apparatus will be added to the environment to help it along. What man thought
adding more machines and more toxins to our environment would be a good idea?
For the answer to this question, see the 5G Guide and look for Ted. Give him a call!

Protecting Your Body From 5G Waves.

The most important thing is to avoid buying devices that emit the 5G millimeter EMF.  If you're getting a tablet, laptop, or phone, check the Specifications on the product page before you buy.  You can also come back here! We'll update this article has we discover more millimeter equipped tech.

With extra-long wires, our best selling air tube headsets create plenty of distance to help keep you protected from EMF!

5G millimeter wave protection

Distance Is Your Friend

As with any EMF, the 5G millimeter Wave EMF dissipates with distance.  If you have already purchased a 5G phone, try not to touch it.  The further you are from it the better.  Absolutely use airtube headphones to keep it from your body when you talk and a stylus and a stand to give you distance from the 5G EMF when you text.

  • Question, this may sound like a dumb question, but I notice the word “receiving” is being used vs. “transmit”, in the article section “Here’s How To Disable 5G MmWave Receiving on iPhone”.

    In the section of the article, “Here’s How To Disable 5G MmWave Receiving on iPhone” instructions on disabling the “receiving”… is the “transmit” still able to be activated? And even if, ""Choose LTE" to disable the receiving from allowing data through the 5G millimeter wave".

    Can the (i)phone still “transmit” on the 5G mmWave Frequencies, if “Choose LTE” is selected???

    Like others have said, I want a newer phone for taking pictures/video, and overall performance. I could care less about the speed of how data is transmitted on the cellular network.

  • This is horses***. mmW from consumer devices is harmless, doesn’t penetrate the skin. But of course what people do not understand can instill fear and this sells ads!

  • Since this article was published, apple is now at iOS 15.3. Is the 5G antenna still able to be disabled with these new system versions? I want a newer phone for picture taking purposes, but only if I can still disable the 5G antenna.

    Thanks!

  • Would it be better to buy an iPhone 13 in Europe? I heard those ones don’t have the 5G antennae?
