Some phones are more susceptible to ground loop interference (caused by the alternator I think?) than others when connected to the audio system in your car. This might be what you're experiencing. It typically sounds like hissing or whining but I guess could cause popping as well. I've had this problem in my car using only certain phones and I bought a PAC ground loop isolator a year or two ago and I haven't had a problem since.
