I just downloaded latest firmware though and haven’t tried it yet so maybe things will change.
    Its not a problem from all phones. My cell doesnt affect my EQX one bit, but I've had other people walk up to talk to me and my detector started popping and falsing like crazy, especially if their phone gets or makes a call.

    Yes, alot of these newer detectors are sensitive to cellphones. I had an at pro, that would let me know ahead of time i would get a txt msg . It would go wonky in my front pocket, but all was well when i put in in my back pocket

    My Last comment of that post was:

    3. One important reminder. Leave your phone in the car. I forgot to leave it in the house on my first run and my wireless Quest headphones soon reminded me of my forgetfulness with all the chatter!

    Not to worry, I too forgot to leave my phone in the house on my first run of that test as I stated in the OP. We all do it my friend!
    Your post reminded me to check to see if it was the cell. Much appreciated Colonel!

    Jason,

    I am really glad you posted this; my cell phone (iPhone) does not seem to affect my EQX one bit, either -- but have never had the experience you have, where someone else's phone caused your machine to act up. I ASSUMED that it must be only "some" phones, since my phone doesn't bother my EQX, and so what you said, about another person's phone interfering with your machine, seems to confirm that.

    Thanks!

    Steve

    It might also be a combination of type of phone, what mode on the Nox, sens level, proximity of the phone to the MD, and any number of other factors. It is something easy to try if you do encounter the issue.

    Is it a pay phone? Those old pay phones used to drive me crazy!

    If you're out alone DO NOT leave the phone in the car. Try turning it totally off. Falling in holes and things happen.

    Turn off bluetooth on your phone.
    Carry on the opposite side of your detector.
    If that doesn't work try airplane mode.
    I detect some iffy places, I like to have quick access to my phone.
    Just in case I have to call an ambulance for someone who tried to rob me.
    If it's old, I'll dig it, dive on it, detect it or sometimes when I get lucky just bend over and pick it up.

    I always leave mine in my car.
    If there is an emergency there nothing you can do anyway because 90% of the time it’s in someone else’s hands anyway.

    Iphone interference is what we have to pay for by having a detector that is just more sensitive and that is why we are hearing so many good finds on areas that have been hit hard.
    Less sensivity = less finds.

    I use mine for tracking site coverage and boundaries and to document finds in the field so it is a detecting tool for me and I keep it on. I never have an issue just keeping it in a pocket opposite of the side I swing the detector and I am fine.

    I have increasingly encountered more problems with WiFi EMI than cell phone EMI.
