Be warned by keeping your phone in a Faraday cage will start your phone on a hunt for a network, this in turn boosts it’s signal strength full bore open which in turn will drain your battery.
DIY Faraday CagesIf a Carrington or huge nuclear attack happened, you wouldn't have much use for your electronics without power or an Internet connection. A person inside a strong Faraday cage or suit can be hit with 500,000 volts of electricity and can even shoot lightning from their fingers. Jed Daniels made this DIY Faraday Cage with a few things you can get at any hardware store: a few lengths of wood, aluminum screen, copper wire, and a hinge to attach the lid.

A booster bag, which is a shopping bag lined with aluminum foil that's used to shoplift items with RFID tags, is a Faraday cage. You can make a Faraday wallet with just some aluminum foil and duct tape, or add protection to the one you already have. In computer forensics, a Faraday cage called a screen room is used when investigators need to analyze electronic components in an environment with no electromagnetic interference.
You can test the effectiveness of your homebrew faraday cages by putting a cell phone inside them and calling it.

I would like to use a similar lightweight fabric to make a bag to protect my laptop and travel documents. But the types of solar storms that just damage your expensive stuff and mess up communications for a few days are much more likely to happen, so a Faraday cage is a good thing to have.
