Why is my cell phone crackling?

Call 611. (You may have to call from another landline or a cell phone if your phone line is too noisy.) If you hear static, noise, or crackling on one phone only, then the trouble could be the phone itself, a bad cable, bad filter, or the jack it's plugged into.

Just so, what does it mean when you hear static on your phone?

Specifically, if you hear static, scratching or popping, it may be caused by a capacitive discharge, which is created when two conductors like a wiretap on a phone line are connected. A tapped phone line can be verified with a sound-bandwidth sensor on a low frequency.

Also Know, how can you tell if someone is recording your call? Note any unusual and recurring crackling noises, clicks on the line or brief bursts of static during a call. These are indicators that someone is monitoring and possibly recording the conversation.

You can check for inaudible sounds on your phone by using a sound-bandwidth sensor on a low frequency. If it finds sounds several times in one minute, your phone may be tapped.

Why would someone tap your phone?

If a mobile phone is tapped it is recording your activities and transmitting them to a third party. This leaves a footprint in the form of increased battery usage and as a result the battery loses life faster. If so, it could be that your phone is bugged, or it's defective in some way.

The most common problem is the microphone (or headset) related to its surroundings. If you are recording sound next to a whirling hard drive or noisy computer, you will produce an audio that appears to have a lot of static but it actually is primarily environmental sound.
