my sister just had this issue with cingular on her pearl. she had it for about 6 months with no problems then the static started (much like how you are describing it).
she called cingular and spoke to someone who said that a call tower was down by where she lives and they are fixing it and it should stop doing it soon. it didnt stop so she called back and another guy said that no call towers were down (gotta love customer service) and that her phone probably stopped reading her sim card. to test it, she switched sim cards with my mom's phone (my mom also has cingular) and no matter what sim card was in her phone she got static, but when her sim card was in another phone it was fine. she just sent it back for a replacement and the replacement works fine.
i would suggest doing a sim card switch if you know someone else with cingular to see if your phone is the problem. either way, i would go into a cingular store and swap it out for another.
hope this helped!
