So we all know that GSM phones can induce various sounds in unshielded amplified speakers, but ever have one take over control of your machine?

I recently got a new Blackberry 8320 and switched it from T-Mobile to AT&T (work phone). Whats fun is that when I set it down to the right of my keyboard (by the mouse and my Polycom) my cursor starts doing strange and interesting things when its radio is active – cursor movement, right clicks/half-clicks, etc – just weirdness. Now if this were an RF mouse or something, sure, but this is a wired, USB, optical mouse, which makes it seem odd. Any theories? Anyone know if optical mice have an ADC anywhere in the input chain?
