    I upgraded from the original 2G iPhone, which gave me a ridiculous amount of loud GSM buzz. After using the 3G S around my computer and other speakers for about a week now, I have not noticed any GSM buzz at all! Has anyone else noticed a difference?

    Answer...

    The 3G network is different, you don't get the buzz, but if you turn off 3G you will hear the familiar albeit annoying buzz. I say, thank goodness it's pretty much a thing of the past. But I've been free of it since I got the 3G.

    Yeah the 3GS/3G use WCDMA which doesn't have the same problem with interference as GSM does.
