    is your iPhone plugged into the PC? because my verizon blackberry used to make my speakers on both my phone & PC 'buzz' before a call/email/SMS came in on my BB. was weird. but (here it comes) i have NOT experienced this on my iPhone. sorry. and my iPhone sits right on my desk all day.

    does this happen when you are on Edge, 3G or WiFi? or does it matter?

    Every phone I've had has done this. It is transmitting so it's kinda par for the course

    would it damage the pc u think ?somebody said it would saying that it has something to do with magnetic crap...None of my sprint phones has ever done that.I remember years ago when i had Verizon pre paid phone(by audiovox some ugly cheap phone in like 2000 i believe) it did it..

    This is just GSM feedback. All GSM phones will do this around a pc. They always have. CDMA phones don't.

    Won't damage the computer, it's just the speakers getting the feedback. I get it on my office phone too. Don't worry about it.

    Exactly. Verizon is CDMA and as he was replying to my comment - it doesn't happen with CDMA.

    Right, but how would Verizon be silly in this case?

    I don't know. Why must you always comment on things without adding substance to a thread?

    If you're connected to 3G you shouldn't get that noise.

    I will try it with 3g enabled but that crap make me have way to many dropped calls and battery goes down


    Just enabled 3g and behold the noise is gone to bad I will not keep 3g enabled considering I am no fan of dropped calls

    just a joke. wasn't meant to spark a discussion. simply poking fun @ the fact that verizon is the only network running on CMDA. seems odd to isolate themselves from everyone else's configurations. that's all. sorry if i offended anyone with a simple comment.

    now, back to the thread at hand...

    Verizon isn't the only one - Sprint is also CDMA. And the noise is GSM induced, not a particular speed. You will still get GSM interference whether you're on EDGE or 3G.

    Just sayin'.

    The noise only comes while on EDGE. Not on 3G.

    My iPhone cause minor interference...my old Nextel phone drove me nuts, it interererred w/ everything PCs, radios, TV. I had to get into the habit of not leaving it on the nightstand near the clock radio.

    That's GSM noise, very common. It's the computer, the speakers are improperly shielded from electromagnetic interference. My old laptop used to do this, at least you get an advanced warning your phone is about to ring or you are getting a call. Also, yes as others have said when on 3G it doesn't seem to happen, only EDGE. But EDGE is old news.
