SMT 5600 causing noise through computer speakers


Mar 30, 2006, 12:56 PM
I just purchased a SMT 5600 online and am getting some kind of intermittent clicking/buzzing interference through my computer's speakers. It is definitely from the phone since the further away I place the phone the softer the sounds are. The phone orientation has an effect as well. The speaker volume knob does NOT have an effect nor does it prevent the sounds. They also happen whether or not my phone is connected via USB data cable. The sounds occur every 10-15 minutes. Does anyone have any ideas as to the cause? Thanks for reading!

i regestered to this site just to answer your question, heheh, ok the sound your getting from your speakers is only your cellphone signal intereferring with your computer speakers, thats normal every cell phone does that, but some dont becuase the signal is not strong enough for speakers to pick them up, you know your phone is really good signal when the sound it louder Wink hope that help sorry for the late response

I find it odd because my old phone (Sony-Ericsson T68i) never did it. I think that it is some type of "pinging" signal from the phone to tell the carrier's network where it is because it doesn't happen when I'm in a call. Great phone otherwise! Anyways, thanks for the response!

Sounds like what a Boost or Nextel phone will do. My blackberry 7520 does the same thing. I just got the 5600 off eBay Smile I just live with it or put the phone in the other room.
