    I hooked my new iphone up to my car via a tape deck adaptor (Tape deck with a cord that cna plug into headphone jack). This normally works fine with ipods/etc. When I tried to use pandora I got this annoying sound that I sometimes get when my phone is too close to speakers and the phone is transmitting/receiving.

    What the hell do i do about this?

    not much, it's a GSM interference from the connection. it really effects non shielded cables. either try and get a tape adapter with a shielded cable or just try to avoid the phone being on top of the cable or near the stereo/speakers/any cables.

    Do they sell shielded version? These things are pretty cheap and shitty.

    This is what's happening... When you're using Pandora, you're using the 3G network. With 3G, it can still receive calls, so there might be interference. If you want, you can put the phone into Airplane mode, and it will prevent it from doing it. It will also turn off the cell phone signal, so use it when you don't need to know about calls coming in.

    Basically, you're gonna have to end up living with it, or get a better adapter.

    I know most of the adaptors for ipods and such don't work for the iphone 3g, but what if you got one of those FM transmitters that plugs into the headphone jack? that might work
