Which phone creates the highest radiation?

Continuing our cell-phones radiation discussion, I recently found some interesting statistics about the highest and lowest radiation cell-phones.

Important to know:
If you're concerned about limiting your SAR exposure, you can take a few easy steps beyond purchasing a handset with a low SAR:

1. You can text instead placing a voice call,
2.
Use a wired headset or speakerphone whenever possible,
3. carry your phone at least one inch from your body.
4. Avoid using your phone in areas with poor coverage since phones emit more radiation when searching for a signal.
5. Children, which have smaller and thinner skulls, should limit cell phone use,
6. Children and adults, should not sleep with an active phone next to their bedside or under their pillow.

Okay seriously, this is getting a bit out of hand.  lol.  The radiation that cell phones output and the possible health implications should be studied.  But let's not overreact here.  This is not ionizing radiation, like you get from radioactive decay.  We're talking radio frequencies in the microwave band here and extremely LOW power radio frequencies (nowhere near the ballpark of your microwave oven, which is only harmful to your health via heat -- there is no cancer risk, for example). 

Look at some facts here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_phone_radiation_and_health#Non-thermal_effects

Basically, it's a lot of negative (no health hazard) results on the bad stuff (cancer) with some mixed results on more benign effects. 

I personally think cell phones are very safe devices.  In fact, I think the capability of being able to dial 911 from a cellphone is more likely to save your life than you are to get some strange negative health effect.  It's probably statistically a net positive for your health.
