How do wireless phones compare to cordless phones? I have heard that the latter are worse than cell phones for radiation output..

You use your own landline phone, no radiation involved :)

Oh, thanks--so the modem-like gizmo doesn't emit anything?

Would headphones attached to the phone solve the problem during long chats?

Honestly, I'd be more worried about the microwave than that unit, Karen. I'd say you're safe :)

Ok, put in another way: those cell transmission waves are in the air, whether we trust them or not - there is no escape. All that unit does is pick up those waves. It doesn't transmit any... because in order to make or receive the call, you will have to physically plug in your home phone wire.

If you use a home phone now, plugging it in the wall or plugging it in the unit makes NO difference safety wise.
