    Every time I send or recieve a text, my computer speakers go staticy. Different tones for sending and recieving. It happens a second before my phone recieves a text.

    Just thought I'd share that. :)

    That's because your computer speakers aren't shielded and the speakers are picking up interference from the cell phone communicating with the cell tower.

    fuck everything that is said above.

    you need to hurry up and make yourself a tin foil hat.
    thats the sound of the aliens (or worse: government) trying to get into your head and read your thoughts. they just started spreading the rumor of cell phone interference to cover it up.
    its all conspiracy.

    lmao.

    My buddy used to have a his personal computer in his room, and house phone, cell phones or beepers would effect his speakers and like wise. So talking on his phone, or your cell phone in his room was impossible because of the static in either the speakers or the phone. We even tested it, and it starts RIGHT at his door way. any where else in the house is perfectly fine, but not in his room.

    I have mine set just far enough away to where I get a faint buzz through the speakers right before a text comes through. It's like an early warning system for an inconsequential happenstance.
