    Hello,

    Just got my 928 yesterday and love it. I've noticed two things that have me a little concerned:

    First, when I brought my phone back to my desk, my desk phone started making RF interference noises- the desk phone was on the hook and not active but the RF noise was emitting from the speaker phone intermittently.

    Next, when talking on the phone, I noticed that there is a faint pulsing sound in the background of the call- the caller on the other end could not hear it.

    Has anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if I need to exchange it.

    Thanks.

    No worries - it's the NSA listening in on what you're doing at your desk.

    If the NSA had a better connection, you wouldn't. You need to upgrade your internet connection for them.

    Yes, I've had this issue, or what is similar. I hear a very faint tapping or clicking noise in the background of calls. I suspected the NSA, however, I thought I'd try switching off things like Wifi, Bluetooth, etc. to see if any of those could be the culprit. It was the "tap+send" function. I turned it on and off a couple of times. Each time it was off, the noise disappeared. So I have it off until I need to use it - which will be almost never since it only works with other Windows phones, and THEY are far and few between these days. Hope this helps.
