    This is my first time posting in these forums. I recently purchased a new Treo 650, and have had only one problem so far. I seem to get feedback on radios whenever my phone is nearby. In my vehicle (Using CD Player, not the FM radio), the alarm clock near the bed whenever the phone is nearby, and the volume is all the way off. I was wondering if anyone knew what is causing this feedback? It's very incosistent, so i cannot pinpoint an exact cause, only that this started happening when i purchased this phone.

    I believe it happens when your phone is transmitting/receiving data.

    Yeah, if it's a morse-code-y sounding pattern of buzzing, that's probably your GPRS (data) connection. I've experienced the same thing on all my GPRS-enabled phones, not just the Treo. Only real solution seems to be to move the phone further from the radio.

    I sometimes use my treo as an mp3 player in my car, and I just live with it. You can cut down on communications though if you disable network time and anything else like versamail that might be using a data connection.

    I have the same thing happen with other phones both on my car stereo, computer, computer screen, guitar amp, etc. It's pretty normal. It's the sound of all that radiation thats being transmitted into your inner ear....

    Yes, it is primarily a GPRS phenomenon. CDMA phones don't really have this problem.
