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?

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.
It's EM interference.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I guess spambots are now capable of reading minds.
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.
I've definitely picked up radio signals.
