Extreme Radio interference


Nov 14, 2004, 4:05 AM
I noted that my TV, all my stereos, and some other gear is succeptable to interference by the Treo600.

I was watching some dvd's and the Rotel amps picked it up. Not the kind of thing I expect from a $5995 amp, but I noted that the Treo causes my monitors to wobble the image if it is sitting in the cradle or in close proximity to the computer.

In the car I get noise as well. Leave a home radio on and have your Treo in say ~10 feet of it, and you'll hear a specific pattern of noise, but it is not constant, it must be a network thing or something, but it SUCKS.

That interference is from the rf's associated with a GSM device. It's not a network problem and it happens with every GSM device. Some have more interference than others. The interference will increase just before a call comes in, you should hear a pattern in the sound. It is annoying but unfortunately unavoidable.
