To answer your question… I am currently living in Yuma, Az, but spent most of my life in SE Pennsylvania up till a few years ago.
I am not an expert in electronics, but I have spent most of my life repairing and even in some cases designing electronic equipment. I know enough to know that I don’t know everything, so I am always open to learning new things… However when something that goes against all that I’ve previously ‘known’ is presented, I need a lot more information before I accept it as fact. No matter how complicated the equipment is, there needs to be a power source for it to operate. With out a battery a phone has no power to do anything… There are some devices that when ‘pinged’ with enough power from close by CAN give a limited response, however that requires circuitry designed to do just that, such as is used in RFID technology. As always, I am willing to learn, if you can provide an explanation.
Thank You for your response,
