    When you put your iphone to charge next to a speaker or the Imac it causes static because the fon is constantly connecting to the cell tower...I few days ago I bought a small usb hub, and connected the iphone charger to that first, then the hub to the Imac...static is now all gone!!! I can even receive calls or make calls with no static...maybe someone figured this out already...but I just wanted to pass it along:)

    I think it's because of the ATT wireless signal. As far as I know the only surefire way to stop the interference is to put your iPhone into airplane mode.

    That's your standard GSM interference, most cell phones do that unfortunately. I don't know of a good way around it other than to isolate the phone from whatever's picking up the interference.

    Just moving the radiation source away from the affected system will decrease it's effects. The energy density is an inverse square when moving away - so a little distance makes a big improvement.

    That's just GSM for ya. CDMA doesn't really do it - actually, it never happened to me with a CDMA phone before.

    Perhaps this will make you appreciate the airlines request to shut off your cells when flying. ;)
