    Phone causes buzzing/static noise on speakers?

    Anyone have like weird buzzing sounds coming out of their speakers? PC and/or TV. It mostly comes from my PC speakers at random times. Once in a while just before I receive calls, I would get the noise. It sounds like a static like morse code beeping with buzzing. It gets louder when the phone gets closer to the speakers. It was barely an issue before, but now I get it constantly. I can't be the only one having this problem right?

    I signed up with ATT before the merge and would get Cingular in the operator logo when roaming, but lately its been on stuck on Cingular. I am in Southeastern PA. Is it stuck at Cingular or eventually go back to ATT? I ask because I got rid of the Operator logo for ATT and cannot for Cingular. I've searched through the other posts and nothing seemed to work. The logo would dl and save just fine, but still would show Cingular. If anyone knows how to solve this itll help me out alot. thanks

    It is just RF interference.

    Do they make speakers that are shielded from such interference?

    Since you mention that this problem just started and you are a former AT&T Wireless customer, it's possible that AT&T Wireless ran on the 1900 band which causes little to no interference. Now that your market is integrated, your phone could be picking up the 850 band which causes the interference. Interference is the price you pay for a more powerful signal.

    That's a known issue in particular when the phone is using the 800/850 MHz band to communicate with the cell site. It can occur if the phone is using the 1900 MHz band, but it's more pronounced on the 800/850 MHz band. Yes, I get the buzzing sound on my Altec Lansings, and if I make/receive a call the buzzing gets so annoying that I end up turning off the speakers for the duration of the call.

    This is only a problem with TDMA and GSM handsets. CDMA handsets, whether on 800 or 1900MHz freqencies, do not have this problem.

    Of course, this doesn't do you a whole lot of good as a Cingular customer. They're a GSM/TDMA carrier.

    So it gets louder when the phone gets closer to the speakers? Gee, I wonder if it is the phone that's causing that.
    I DON'T HAVE A SIGNATURE....SORRY

    Your speakers are not sheilded properly from radio frequency signals.

    You have to love superior technology... Now if only Sprint consented to R-UIM, the world would be a little more perfect. And, if Sprint carried more Motorola phones on their CDMA side. Hopefully they will once Nextel integrates.
