Beep Beep beep...

i've noticed something and i think you have noticed it too, that is if you own both and amp and a mobile phone.

you know you get that beep beep beep noise as your message comes in, but i noticed something...sometimes it goes beep beep beep but i dont receive a message.

what does that mean?

That someone is pinging your phone to get your GPS location.

It is possible that other transmission is travelling across the amp, doesn't have to be yours.

I know what you're talking about OP.

Basically the amp is picking up the signal the phone sends to the cell tower [when it receives a text, call etc.] and converts it into an audible sound.

I picked up Spanish radio on my amp once. I don't even think there's a Spanish radio station in the UK.

I listened for three hours and they didn't play any Ricky Martin so I turned it off.
