Forum first timer:
I am wondering where to go to understand what regulations (industry standards or governmental standards) limit the allowable sounds emitted by cell phones and land line phones. I think there is a problem that potentially crosses the line from one service provider to another, or a service provider to the specific equipment used by a phone user, that causes ear aches. I have continuing pain as the result of such features as call waiting-where an incoming call is identified by a pulse sound or by moving between calls with the phone to my ear. At times I have great difficulty speaking with people who are using VOIP- an "ultra" clearness that is aggressive to my ears.
How should I protect myself? I live with someone who uses the features described and can;'t avoid some exposure, currently. Are there articles describing which phones work best? Which models?
Thanks for the input, and with your help, once I research the regulations I will report back to this forum.
