    Ok, I'm quite confused. I've had my Samsung Captivate for about 4 days now, and today when i plugged it in mid-day to charge (om nom nom battery life) it started emitting random, extremely obnoxious high-pitched beeps about 2 times per minute. It does it whether or not it's on A/C power, it even does it when the phone's powered off but the battery's in there, I just don't understand why or how to stop it.

    Phone is awesome otherwise! Anyone having this issue/ know where it's coming from?

    -James, confused

    oh god I'm off on the wrong foot. It was the smoke detector directly above where my phone was charging. Sorry guys. Admins can delete this, I apologize profusely. I promise to make relevant posts in the future :)

    The real question is...was the OP serious?

    OP, you are not alone. I am having this exact same issue, I have to carry my phone in a thick padded pouch so the noise is not too bothersome. The noise seems to disappear when I step out of the house into the noise streets. A press release just hit the wires, samsung is recalling the captivates because of this issue precisely, admitting it was their error and some phones are faulty.
