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
    I had att a couple years ago and had the nokia 3595, when I got a call with that it would make a buzzing sound in my pc speakers, tv, anything with a speaker. It does it with my motorola now, but only if I keep it very close to my computer.

    It's normal for GSM/TDMA phones to do this. For GSM the transmitter keys on about 200 times a second when it's active so it gets picked up by the speaker voice coil. The amplitude of the noise depends on the power level being used by the RF amplifier in the phone. If you keep the phone away from speakers (>5 feet or ~1.5 meters), you should be fine.

    Noise in speakers

    I have a V3 and it makes the same noise in the ear piece of the phone, any ideas.

    I've had two like that. It seems to be some kind of defect in the phone. I've learned to live with it.

    Do you think its something that can be fixed by moto if I send it in they say all repairs are 75.oo dollars, are they repairing it or just send you a a refurbished phone. Or should i just goto moto's site and get the V3r.

    No pun intended, but it amazes me that some people still don’t know that certain cell standards, like GSM, cause some, especially unshielded, speakers to make noise (people are wondering what is that), I’m more interested in how to prevent / shield it.

    So far, no good solutions. “Interference is the price you pay for a more powerful signal”. I don’t totally agree with that, since different cellphones act differently on same speakers. I remember when I had my Sony Ericsson P800 (1st generation smartphone), I barely had any noise. Now with Treo 650 and especially with Cingular 8125 it’s way worse. However, signal seems to be the same whether it’s my old phone or new (I didn’t notice much difference between phone as to one working and the other won’t in the same spot).

    I had a website once with radiation ratings on different phones, and yes, SE P800 was pretty low, while TREO 650 was very high - I guess that's what makes some phones generate more noise than others. What I don't get, is that those phones pretty much had same signal and didn't work in certain office areas (I swear we have lead roof in the office), so I can't really believe stronger signal / more noise idea.

    I also had same radar detector problem people talked about before. It was T-mobile and BEL Pro 850 (or, 800). Laser would go off every time cell communicates with tower. I talked to BEL, and they admitted it's a problem, they have to put extra filters on the unit. Since I bought the unit on ebay (brand new), they didn't honor the warranty and I had to pay ~$100 to fix it. I paid $160 for the whole unit. So I exchanged it to Escort 8500 X50 and never had that problem again.
    Funny thing, Cingular didn't do it, only T-Mobile.

    I’m open to suggestions what to do with the noise.

    when I had the 8125, hw6515, mpx220, I enabled the manual network selection, and I would select the 2nd cingular selection, after that I would never get any type of gsm interference thru pc speakers or any other type of live speakers. It seems to me it the cingular network!

    The "other Cingular" was probably T-Mobile or another 1900 network in your area, while Cingular probably uses 850 there.

    I spoke with CS last night and he told that they operate majority on the 1900, but you never know with these reps!

    you need to enable manual network selection thru the registry!

    It's hard to say. Most reps don't know which licenses Cingular operates on in each market. I don't blame them, it would be hard to remember even one region.
    Go to www.americantowers.com. It will redirect you to the FCC's ULS and you can do a Geosearch for your county and find out which spectrum blocks Cingular has. CL and CW and cellular and PCS respectively.
