I dont think you would be able to angle your phone correctly since the magnet is only 50% of that ball

Anything you can put a magnet to will work. I hate GPS systems so that's why I enjoy using my phone, which may shortly turn into an iPad Mini or something of similar size

I've seen this before but it was branded by another company and way more expensive then the one you bought.

By the way if you have any friends with an Samsung Galaxy S III can you test to see if it'll work? thanks.

This would be great if the magnet was on the steel ball side, and the part that stuck to the phone was just a steel circle...

The MAGNET sticks to the phone.... no worries about phone damage (can't hurt flash drive, etc) but it says specifically not to put it near credit cards on the website....

There have been many times when I didn't want to carry a wallet and by chance or by accident my credit card was in the same pocket as my phone.

Say you use all your cash at the bar and need to use your credit card for the cab home and find out it's been wiped by your phone mount...

THAT. WOULD. SUCK.

Great idea! Would defiantly do this in a heatbeat but my iPhone 5 case holds my credit cards -_- so putting a magnet on it would not be the best idea. But anyways, very clean setup

the part that sticks to phone is just the magnet....not the steel ball. Its lest than 1/4 inch in width so barely sticks off of the phone.

They did a whole thing on mythbusters that proved it would take a redicolously strong magnet to whip credit cards. I have my phone next to my wallet all day, and have had zero problems with it. I even attach my phone to my wallet by accident sometimes since the money clip in my wallet, is a magnet. Never had a problem. Just an input.
