    This usually happens when a call or message is about to come through.

    That's all that brain tumor causing radiation pouring through your mighty BlackBerry just before a call or message!

    And sometimes its "Big Brother" checking your phone from time to time, going through your messages and phone memory as they laugh at you cause you think you have it locked and on standby.

    It is what happens to bb owners. You know when you are going to get a message before it comes in. The opposite of phantom vibrations.

    it will happen with all mobile devices no matter from which company it is. Whenever a message or call transmitted over the air to the destination device it will increase the magnetic field and due to which you hear a humming sound in speakers.

    Yep. It happens to all cellphones regardless of make or model.

    It happens with normal cell fones to. When I had my V3 near the pc I would know when a call or txt was coming thru because the pc screen would get all 'wavy' and 'jumpy'

    Someone told me that can hurt TVs and such... Anyone think there is truth to that?

    My cheap Motorola V180 did the same thing. If I was driving and my stereo would start making that sound, I would know to turn it down and answer the phone. Makes it kinda like a pre-call warning. I kinda like it since I always have my stereo up too loud to hear the phone.

    Pretty common thing, to have static in an electronic item near a cell phone just about to start ringing. My old Samsung did the same thing.

    Next time you're at a buddy's house, leave your BB next to their TV nonchalantly, then listen for the buzz through his speakers. Say "Oh my phone's about to ring" before it actually rings. They'll look at you like you're a 3 headed monkey wearing a football helmet! Too funny lol

    I must have a metal plate in my head or something cuz I will pick up my Berry just prior to receiving a call, text, or email at least five time a day and no I am not near a speaker to hear the buzz first. Maybe I should stop looking at my Berry so much and actually work. Naah
