Yup, except that even if you do take it apart, rub it all over your nekkid body, then boil it in water, drink the water and then eat the phone, you'll still be fine.
Ca. law has ZERO tolerance for lead. Thats it. ZERO.
All those electronics from... what starting with radios in the late 20's right up to the early 2000's all had lots of lead/tin/antimony soldered connections. Every Fender amp, every walkie talkie, every TV, every PC, every everything....AND, All our copper pipes were (oh my Lord!) lead soldered to add insult to Ca. injury. They're nutz about it.
Its lead fear taken to an anal degree... by nutjobs in Sacramento.
