Mobile phone static can be caused by may factors, including poor coverage area and issues with your handset. One often overlooked cause is the SIM card.
If you are experiencing issues with static on your cell phone try a new version of your SIM card before you either give up and purchase a new phone, or spend hours talking to Tech support.
