Mobile phones are among the safest electronics, according to a new report from the Federal Trade Commission.
The FTC, which is an agency of the U.S. Department of Justice, found that the safety of smartphones is “consistent” across all models and that the majority of smartphone users have the right to buy phones with cell phone towers off limits.
The report, published Wednesday by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, was based on a survey of more than 1,200 consumers from September 2016 to May 2017.
It found that most smartphone users say they are able to use their phones without incident.
But the FTC said it found some of the phones in the survey had cell towers off-limits.
The phones have been in the news a lot this week.
President Donald Trump called on the Federal Communications Commission to rescind an Obama-era rule that bars manufacturers from placing new, unauthorized antennas on phones.
The FCC had previously ruled that the antennas violate FCC rules that require manufacturers to ensure that the phones are not being used to transmit data.
A spokesman for Trump said the commission was considering the FTC report but added that it’s too soon to make a final decision.
The president said in a tweet that he was disappointed the FCC would not act quickly to enforce a rule that’s been in place for nearly 20 years.
“The FCC is a nonpartisan agency that protects consumers and should not be politicized by the White House,” the spokesman said in an email.
