Default What would happen if you put your cell phone in the microwave?

Someone told me that every time a new cell phone design comes out he sticks his old one in the microwave and zaps it for two seconds, breaking it. The warranty people apparently have no idea about why the phone won't work and they warranty it.

Now my question is...is this legit? Does it actually work? If so, does the phone need to be on? Will this work on other electronics?

I don't intend to do this, I just find it really interesting.

Any thoughts?

By the same line of logic... if you buy a hamster at a pet store, and then don't want to take care of it anymore, do you put it in the microwave so that it dies and then you can take it back to the store?

Cell Phones are plastic. Microwaves are hot. I don't think that's a good combination. I hope it melts on you

I did see a show on freezing your CD's for 24-hrs which 'supposedly' makes the sound better by some of the music professionals. I tried and didn't really make a difference but microwave? Hahahaha.
