    Has anyone had the problem with their Treo 650 causing a buzzing/distortion sound when it is accessing the Internet and the phone is close to a PC or IP phone system? I vae a wireless network in my home and notice when I am near my PC with the transmitter I get a buzzing type sound when the phone is transmitting. I also get the same sound when the phone is near my IP phone at work.

    The 600 had the same issue. For the life of me I cannot remember if my 180 did the same thing. I have heard its only the GSM radios that do this.

    Yup, happens with any GSM phone. Causes interference with wireless LAN as well as cordless phone frequencies. What seems to reduce the buzz is to:
    1. upgrade your wireless to 802.11G from 802.11B, if you haven't already done that
    2. upgrade your cordless phone from 2.4GHz to 5.8 GHz
    I did these, and there's no more buzzing for me.

    GSM and iDen (Nextel) all interfere with speakers, it stinks. CDMA does too, but at a much lesser extent. I can hear my Sprint Treo 650 sometimes on my computer speakers, but its no where near as irritating as with a GSM phone.

    As stated already, most mobile phones cause this. Just move the phone about 6 feet from your PC monitor, speakers, etc. and no more issues.

    Kind of hard to move the phone too far away with a docking cradle. Can this buzzing be damaging? I assume if I turn off the phone when it is in the cradle that would stop the buzzing right?

    Nope, it's not damaging. I lived with it for a looong time before I could afford to upgrade my cordless/wireless devices. Turning your phone off in the cradle should stop the buzzing.

    GSM and IDEN are serious problems in this regard. It is not a treo issue. Get any GSM phone near audio equipment and you have problems.

    I am an audio engineer and we ban them from the studio. My CDMA phones (including my Treo 650) do not cause any issues at all. I am not saying that CDMA is completely interfearence free, only that it is not a problem around our professional audio equipment. When we are not doing sessions and have our GSM phones on we can tell when a call is comming in before the phone even rings they are so bad!

    We only use GSM phones becasue my company has a contract with ATT/Cingular so the business phones are GSM.
