Sidekick 3 erases credit cards?

Gizmodo is reporting that some T-Mobile Sidekick 3 owners have discovered that a magnet in the phone is so strong that it can wipe out the data strip of credit cards and others of that ilk.  The magnet is strong enough to hold up a table knife or fork so it is definitely plenty strong.  Better keep it away from those bank cards, too.
