Hey there I have a geeky question. I hear static whenever I talk on my home phone if I get too close to my computer, what could be causing this and how do I fix it?

Sounds like it could be something related to a wireless card?

 

I'd recommend checking to see if your modem/router makes your phone have the static sound also. (assuming you have wireless)

 

Wireless G networks run at 2.4 ghz, and most house phones run at 2.4 ghz also so it conflicts.

 

Thats my 2cents. Hope it helps!

How old is your wireless phone? Older phones had this issue but the newer ones run at a high frequency that fixes this type of thing normally.

 

However... I still get feedback on my computer speakers when I get a txt message or phone call on my mobile. I don't notice it as much on my iphone but it still happens from time to time.

Yes I have a wireless internet modem I hear the same static when I get close to it

 

My home phone is not new - yeah it is like 4 or 5 years old I just found the box for it. Says on box it is a 2.4 ghz phone

 

If I buy a new phone will it fix the static or do I need to get rid of my wireless internet

You can pickup a new phone for under $20 from nearly any electronics store. Costco was doing a deal on them for a while. Make sure to get one that is 5.4 ghz or higher.

 

That should fix any problem you have with the phone static!

 

Oh yeah, you want to have at least 5.8ghz phone. It will remove static and make it harder for ppl to listen in on your calls as the newer phones have that switching technology (guy at bestbuy told me about it) lol

 

Let us know if that fixes it

I recently bought my wireless phone in a well known company. However, I also encountered with this static when I get close to it. As of now, I am currently searching on the net for the possible solutions.

Can you return it and find a better quality phone?

Sometimes static on phone home can possibly happen. Because the normal pulsing of the handset's

transmitter creates an audio component which can often be heard when inclose proximity to unshielded audio equipment just like speaker wiring. To eliminate this particular problem replace the speaker wires with using coaxial shielded cables using BT headsets.
