Default Annoying noise on speakers next to BB

Please Login to Remove!

I have a new Blackberry and love it but if I get within 4 feet of my computer with the JBL speakers I get all kinds of humming noise on the speakers whenever the phone is transmitting data. Is there are way to minimize this.

Turn down the volume on the speakers or turn them completely off. Other than that, nothing can be done.

Almost any cell phone will do that, not just your BB.

The sound you are hearing thru your speakers is radio interference - no real way to correct it other than moving the phone away from the speakers.

Funny enough, I read an article s few days ago on BBHub or Blackberrycool sbout RIM filing a patent regarding a technology to stop this.

Shielded audio cables should help minimize the issue.

I have this same issue with my phone at work. If I'm on my office phone and my BB goes off the interference goes off on my office phone and it's extremely loud.

I too saw the article about the pantent to fix the interference. I hope they can get that out soon.

I only turn on my speakers at work to listen to something specific. Otherwise, the noise would make me suicidal.

I have found this to be the norm with all phones on a GSM/TDMA Network.

I have never ran into this problem with a phone on a CDMA network however

Yes, in my experience, this only happens on a GSM network, not CDMA. and not just regular speakers, when I used to be on with a GSM carrier, and I'd be driving and listening to the radio I would always tell when I have a call coming in due to the interference of the speakers, then a second later, the phone would ring.

I never have a problem with my Verizon causing this. When I was on Nextel, it was HORRIBLE. My speakers would buzz before the phone even rang.

It happens on CDMA as well, though not as bad. I've done it myself. Clip here:

Either have to move the phone to another location away from the speakers or try turning the phone away from the speakers. This works for me.

GSM 850 is particularly bad. TMO in Houston uses 1900, Cingular in Houston uses 850. When I was with TMO I had to place my Blackberry right next to a speaker to cause interference. Now, with Cingular, I have to keep the Blackberry about 4 feet away or further to an active speaker. Generally, I just turn speakers off (doesn't work with the speaker on the office phone though since it's always on).

I like it! I've gotten used to the unique noise it makes when there's a text message coming, so I know to reach for my BB before my text sound even goes off.
