iPhone interference?

Asked by pattyb (786points) March 5th, 2008 from iPhone

whrirrrrrr…tick tick tick. I hear it when I hook up to an external speaker. But today I heard it in my doctors office phone. I know it was my phone doing it because when I toggled airplane mode it was in sync with the interference. What is the cause? Why does it do this? And how to prevent it?

By the way, it was annoying the receptionist’s who work there. ( I never fessed up)

It’s GSM interference, and it’s not limited to AT&T or the iPhone.

I can’t link it for you, but if you search Fluther for “iPhone” and “aluminum” you will find a solution!

It’s any phone from any service. It’s your phone tring to find a local tower I think. Like you said when I’m playing music in my car I put the phone in airplane mode or at least turn off wifi, that seems to cause the noise as well.

GSM attacks the same frequency that standard radio stations are on.

Get Ultrasone headphones. They are made of MU Metal so you won’t hear that at all!
