Repeated test unplugging from speaker end, same result. So its
definitely related to the speakers themselves.
Now, who makes good speakers that aren't susceptible to this?
Right now I've made the phone sit on the bookcase on the other side of
the office rather then on the desk with me. It seems to work that way
but when the phone rings I have to move across the room to answer.
Maybe I should just wrap the speakers in tin foil?! ;-)
Thanks for everyones input, its nice to know Im not the only one with
this situation. When we had Nextels here it was so much worse, but I do
kinda miss the walkie-talkie like functionality when dealing with work
people around the building.
