How to prevent iPhone audio interference in speakers
Authored by: osxpounder on Jan 07, '08 10:29:55AM

I hear my cell phone making digital beeps and ripping sounds often through just about any audio device it's near. If I'm recording audio, I must turn the cell phone completely off, or that sound will get into the recording. Powered speakers, attached to my old bedroom Mac, pick up the sound even when the Mac is shut down. If I forget to turn off the powered speakers, I will be awakened by that loud set of beeps and ripping digital glitch sounds. It lasts about 1.5 seconds, and seems to do it once or twice an hour.

I hear it on my car radio, I hear it out of my computer speakers... everywhere there are speakers. Lots of phones seem to do this. It's very annoying; I thought this is the sort of thing that FCC regulations were supposed to prevent, but the removal of such regulation means I have to put up with this crapola.

I use a Cingular Go-Phone, some kind of Motorola that has no indication of a model name whatsoever, but I don't think it matters what kind of phone it is much. Mine wouldn't be a GSM, I don't think, but I don't know or care much about cell phone tech.
