Hi, i have just bought a Motorola V3x 3G Mobile Phone and whenever im talking on it when its near my wireless mouse and keyboard, it interferes with it and stops the keybaord and mouse from working.... as soon as i take the phone away, the mouse and keyboard work fine again... this never happened with my old 3g Motorola phone.... just wondering if anyone knows why?

This model has an internal arial, my older Motorola had an external.... any comments would be great, thanks.

If your V3x has Blue-tooth switched on, try switching it off and see if it still interferes. If that fixes it, you may need to see if your mouse has multiple channels you can try. Else you may be stuck with this problem and have to keep them further apart.
Another issue could be low 3G coverage, your phone will output at a higher level when in poor coverage. Although your mouse won't share the same frequencies as the cellular network, in close proximity & at higher output power, it may still cause interference.





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Hi, yea Bluetooth is turned off... i think it might be the low level 3g signil theory because i only just manage to get 3g reception.

Thanks for your reply.

Im planning on buying a bluetooth headset soon as i can keep my actual phone further away from the pc when i make those long calls while gaming.

What happens when you switch it to GSM (2GB)? Do you still experience interference?

When you say 2g, have you switched the phone to GSM 2G only mode? The main reason I suspect 3G interfering is it is on 2100 MHz & most wireless devices are 2400 MHz, so in close proximity is more likely to interfere than 900MHz GSM.

Yes, the internal aerial could be the culprit. They are less efficient, so in a marginal signal area the phone will crank out more power than one with an external aerial.

Did your phone come with a wired headset? If so, try that and put the phone in the best practical good signal spot. Also, place your mouse/keyboard transmitter as close as possible to mouse & keyboard.
