    Well, I've seen something like this before with an older BlackBerry, you could always tell when a call was coming through because any speaker around you that was turned on would go nuts.
    We'll I'm having that issue with the Bionic, but it's not just when a call comes in, it's when the network fluctuates or when I recieve an email or text and sometimes just random.
    I am using the desktop dock while I'm at work but the power source is near my radio and i have speakers hooked up to my computer. Sometimes it's so long and loud that I have to shut everything off or move my Bionic to the other side of my desk.

    Anyone else get this?

    Yes. It does it over my wired headset at work. My Thunderbolt also did it.

    That's the GSM radio for you. One of the few drawbacks to 4g (besides battery drain). If you have ever had any AT&T or T-mobile phone, it does the same thing. It is extremely frustrating. If you turn the 4g radio off, you won't have that problem. Of course then you won't have 4g. :)

    Don't seem to have that issue. And I keep my thunderbolt next to my radio and speakers. And I'm familiar with that buzzing noise when I used to have a gsm phone from ATT.
