Submission + - How did RIM's Blackberry get FCC clearance?

Gogogoch writes: I'm sure there is an expert reading Slashdot who can tell us how RIM got their Blackberry approved by the EMC regulators, such as the FCC. I'm thinking of the "does not interfere with other equipment" requirement. My experience is that a Blackberry manages to interfere with most forms of telephone, speakerphone, or audio amnplifier producing those annoying clicks and noises something like a 56K modem, but different. Please, how did they get away with it?
