About three days ago I dialed into my cellular VMB from my POTS
line, and I received this strange signal.
It's been happening randomly since, and I was wondering if this is a switch
malfunction? If this is data, what format is it in?
It sounds almost as a form of FSK signalling, and it's quite a strange
sound to have occur on the line.

Congratulations, Mike! I used to get many of these calls on Verizon in
Charleston, SC.

The solution is to take time off from making your living and taking your
phone to your Verizon store so the technician can test it and tell you
there is nothing wrong with your phone. Of course, every time it happens,
your phone is at fault and you should take it to your store, once again, to
be told there is nothing wrong with your phone.

It's always your phone that's the problem. It was always my phone, a
Verizon-store-bought V60i Moto.

I solved the problem by taking my Verizon V60i to my local Alltel store and
took advantage of the great number portability the FCC shoved down their
throats. The SAME defective V60i has stopped doing this and the underwater
gargling audio since it was put on Alltel's system.....(c;

Great MP3 audio, by the way. Thanks for posting it for us...
