There's your problem: Bose.

Well, All my time and $ lately has been absorbed by a complete master bathroom renovation(yikes $$$$). So, I haven't had the opportunity to try this yet. I appreciate all of the suggestions and promise to post when this is resolved. Thanks.

Regards,

Solution: Turn the phone off. You shouldn't be using it while driving anyway!

GOOD ADVICE!! My niece was in a bad accident...all because of the stupid cell phone "implanted" in her ear. If its not an emergency or a neccessity- leave the calls for out of the car!!

I also hate people that talk on cell phones while driving. I have a Cell but i notice I use it most when out of the car or when stopped in a parking lot. One reason I cant drive with it, I have a manual transmission so its hard to hold the phone and steer and shift. So yeah I cant talk one the phone while driving. Oh, and Lord have mercy, on the person that causes an accident with me because they were on their cell phone

You know you have a problem when you answer the phone, hang up and don't even remember driving the last several miles.. You have to look around to realize where you are!

<---Guilty of this several times, even though I hardly ever talk and drive.

Cells are bad. I drove talking on one once, next thing I know I'm trying to make a right hand turn from the left hand lane(got to run a red light to do it). Now I just wait unless it's an emergency.

My cell phome interferes with almost anything through what I assumed was RF interference. Computermoniters, Speakers(including shielded speakers) cordless phones (1.8ghz) all feel the wrath of my cell phone. I have never been around any electronic item than my phone(nokia 3390) did not interfere with ( slight exageration)
By the way, Do you live in Panther Burn?

I use Nextel for cellular, and whenever I am near any audio system, (home, car, computer) or even speakerphone at the office, I know my phone is going to ring before it ever does. I hear a 'tick tick tick tick tiiiiiiiiick' sound and pick up my phone, ready to answer it. Sometimes, folks see my grab my phone and get ready to answer it before it rings, and it really trips them out! Quite fun, actually..

iDEN, IS-195 (TDMA implementation that "TDMA" carriers use), and GSM are all forms of Time Division Multiple Access. TDMA uses what is like spread spectrum/frequency hopping technology to share spectrum. So, for instance 4 callers could use the same frequency by quickly transmitting and not transmitting. So in two second, it could get between handsets 1 - 3 - 2 - 4 - 2 - 3 - 1. This very fast on again off again transmitting does cause an audible noise if the phone is transmitting when near speakers (TV's or computer speakers being most common), but I have never heard it on a car stereo.

If you used a cell phone that wasn't TDMA based, such as CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) from Verizon, US Cellular, or Sprint PCS, you wouldn't hear it.

That’s classic!

I talk and drive almost every minute I'm driving, thats what it seems like anyway. I sometimes use my bluetooth headset, which makes the task much much easier though. Does that give me some brownie points?

ALTHOUGH, ever since I got Satellite radio the minutes I use per month has significantly reduced...

I have had a similar problem with a Nextel Motorola cell phone for some time now. I have an Infinity BassLink, and when my phone is searching for a signal (which is all too often) it makes the most annoying, loud thump in the BassLink. THUMP! THUMP! THUMP! THUMP!. I'm used to it now but cashiers get a strange look on their face when I'm in the drive-thru and it's thumping away back there.

Cell phones are a weird breed. My computer monitor will flicker right before I receive a call with all my GSM phones, all running in the PCS band. My old Cingular (TDMA) cell phone running in the cellular band would not cause the interference, but a friends of mine ( Cingular TDMA) would. Another friend with Sprint, using the PCS band, phone does not cause the interference. Some phones create some wacko interference for some reason with certain device, for some very off the wall reason.

If you upgrade your phone, and not even necessarily to a different model, you may not experience the interference anymore.

TDMA based cellular standards (GSM, TDMA, and iDEN) will usually cause clicking or other RF interference from their rapid change in channel changes, coupled with their rapid tranmitting. The phone will usually transmit off/on about 10-20 times per SECOND. That's why you can hear a fast ERRRRRRR noise whenever you put a TDMA, GSM or iDEN (Nextel) phone right next to a pair of computer speakers. iDEN (Nextel) is the WORST at it, the phones transmit at higher power levels most of the time.

CDMA phones don't do this because they are not based upon Time Division Multiple Access technology.
