Hey everyone. I just switched over to Apple's iPhone 4 on Verizon Wireless. Works great.

Was playing songs on my iPhone's iPod (sounds weird...) via USB, and noticed that there were popping noises.

I toggled sound check on and off, no changes. The popping noises seem pretty random. Also put the iPhone in airplane mode, and still popping was heard over the speakers. I know this isn't a speaker issue because my AM/FM/SAT/CD and old iPod nano didn't make these noises. I know it's not the bitrate of my mp3 files because I have the exact same files on my iPod nano and this has never happened before.

I DID have Bluetooth on, haven't tried toggling it on or off. It would suck if you couldn't use Bluetooth WITH the iPod playing because of the popping noises. Any other iPhone users encounter the same problems?

I'm also using an aftermarket USB iPod cable. Will try the factory iPod cable when I get a chance.

Mine's ATT

and I use it for music via bluetooth daily with no problem. I have tried it plugged in and had no sound issues with that either. Normally I use BT so I can pick my music rather than being stuck with whatever list was last being played (that issue is pretty lame on someone's part, whomever is to blame).

I also found that the bluetooth sound was a little louder than the USB one. The interface for the USB is kinda annoying. The fact it won't detect playlists is a bit ridiculous. My solution has been to hook it up via USB when it needs to charge, but use the bluetooth to actually play the music.

My iPhone is a 3gs though, haven't heard any popping.

I hear it too! Doesn't happen all the time, but seems to go away if I reconnect the the cable. I'm also using an aftermarket (retractable) cable so that might be it.

Also if your iPhone is jailbroken, you can install this thing from Cydia call 'no accessory attached' ... it will get rid of that annoying screen so you can select songs on the phone itself. Works great!

Sorry, but what do you mean "won't detect playlists"? I use an iPod with several playlists set up.

I had the same problem with "no playlists". It's a crap interface - not you!

When you have it hooked via the dock, you need to "tab" one more to the left than the screen defaults to - you'll find a playlist tab. Common sense would dictate that the screen would scroll only to the right, but it scrolls left - one tab.

Playlist problem

To get around the playlist problem I use the headphone jack to plug into the AUX jack next to the USB jack. Then control the music off the iPhone/iPod. Then you can easily get to your playlists and music.

If you have the little plastic phone holder that goes into the slot it is pretty easy.

As a disclaimer, only do this when stopped. Don't blame me for an accident if you are looking down to fiddle with the iPhone.

The car's interface just isn't that good for the iPhone when it comes to music. The phone functionality is very good for hands free calling via bluetooth.

I don't know if other phones are any better for music integration. Any Blackberry or Android users care to comment?

I do not have navigation. Not sure if that makes a difference. But for me, without navi, when I plug in my iphone thru the USB, I no longer have any control at all using the phone, and only radio control is FF or RWD by song. Im stuck with whatever playlist was going when I plugged in.
