    In addition to GPRS, the noise applies to GSM (and TDMA) as well. And the iPhone is GSM (AT&T and T-Mobile are GSM providers). Other providers, now and historically, use CDMA.
    AllTel, Qwest, Sprint and Verizon, etc. So many Americans have just never run into this before.

    Folks overseas where GSM is the norm (with or without GPRS) are used to this and… just learned not to sit their phone beside their speakers. I got used to this when I lived in Australia and I’ve kept the habit now that we’re back in America. :)
