    I am on ATT. Any time I am near a speaker, my phone induces feedback into the speaker. When you connect it to the aux input of a car stereo it does the same thing. Bad feedback is put through the car speakers. Short of putting in airplane mode, is there a way to get rid of the noise?

    It's GSM interference. It occurs when the phone is running on EDGE.

    yes, it sucks. I want it to stop. Make it stop. It makes me want to run kittens over.

    So much for a kinder, gentler MuddyPaws LOL

    Yeah, it's very annoying. My other line is a 3GS on T-Mobile, which only runs on Edge, and I can hear it anytime the phone is on and within several feet of the speakers.

    There is no way to stop it aside from doing one of these things: increasing the distance between the phone and the speakers, going into airplane mode, running 3G instead of Edge or turning the phone or the speakers off.

    Does AT&T have any plans to add 3G in your area?

    I know the feeling. I would put my phone in the glove compartment and that usually made it stop.
