I know you are out there. How many of you are annoyed with the interference that the iPhone puts out. I will be laying on my couch watching a movie and my surround sound speakers get a LOUD interference from the iPhone. The same thing happens with my computer speakers. It drives me crazy. Has anyone have any type of solution for this. I hate to have to put my iPhone in airplane mode just to watch tv.

It is a common thing with any GSM based phone. I have found that if you simply move the phone a few feet, or across the room, you won't get interference and yet it will be (relatively) easy to access...certainly better than turning the phone off.

This actually never happened to me with the iPhone or my last two phones (Sony Ericsson W810i and M600i). I keep the iPhone right next to one of my studio monitors and never get any interference. For some reason I always see people with Nextel phones having that issue.

It was HORRIBLE with my Razr, much worse than the iPhone. I've found even 12" space is enough to stop the interference with the iPhone.

And yes, this is a common problem with GSM cell devices. It has to do with the signaling frequency used. (being on a call won't cause the problem, but an incoming call will do it. The periodic checks with the cell tower also cause it.)
