Is there a way to pass a cell phone through a metal detector?

Does wrapping it in electrical tape work? Hmmm, Just curious how daring visitors get them through the prison metal detectors.

    No

    Depends on the sensitivity of the metal detector; some won't even pick a phone up

    If you're talking about at an airport, you could take it apart and put it with other stuff that has circuitry

    If you're talking about a bar, or the courts or something like that they might not even notice it

    Do you get cavity searched in prison?

    Also, couldn't you get a friend to bring it in for you during visiting hours?

    I am a friend, not prisoner. And yes they get cavity searched, must have a big bum. \

    Short Answer: No.
    Long Answer: Maybe if the metal detector is cheap or not very powerful, but probably not.

    Get yourself a sports bra. You can stash so much stuff in one of those. Phone..cash...drugs. Cops never think to frisk that area unless you're wearing a shirt with chest pockets. Plus you can wear a metal necklace when you walk thru. If they wand your chest, pull the necklace out from under your shirt. They aren't going to stop to think 'is he wearing a bra with stuff inside it?'.

    One trick was to send canned food in with the phone sealed into it as the large volume of metal in the can obscures the small volume of metal in the phone, but they x-ray everything more carefully now.
