    When I make or receive a call or text message nearby my screen, it causes the right side to flicker. I made a video to demonstrate my point:

    On the video I placed the iPhone against the screen, but it also happens when the iPhone is nearby the macbook (10 cm away). I have a habit of putting the iphone on the bottom right corner so I can multi task even more then I already do on the Mac alone. My previous MBP (end 2008 unibody) didn't have this problem. I know nobody is going to fix this, but I just thought I'd share it with MR :)

    Interesting...
    I'm guessing just regular old interference like speakers do when you set phones near them.
