The radiation from welding is not going to be high enough to affect your phone, I'd be more worried about the sparks and slag adding a nice crater to your phone case or screen. Now if your using high frequency tig, then the electrical RF could possibly couple to your long head phone wires like an antenna and cause noise in the music your listening to. I haven't tried it since I don't have a tig unit, but that would be my guess on it.

As far as the radiation, I use my phone for calculating averages when calibrating radiation detection equipment and there are many times it is set on the range table in the field of the Cs137 source beam. If radiation affected my phone I'm sure my phone would already be experiencing the affects.
