    Mine does it to, in fact all 3 blackberrys I've owned have done it. If you had arrows on your other phones, they would have done it also. I noticed you can hear it connecting with "home" if you sit your phone next to speakers (TV, Radio, Computer). Must just be a normal function of cell phones.

    I've just got my Curve on Friday. I started hearing sounds intermittently coming from my computer speakers right around then. Took me awhile to figure out what was going on but email alerts tend to come in at the same time, if I have any.
    The arrows don't tend to go right along with the speaker noises, but I figured it indicated data upload an download.
    I'm not shy. I'm studying my prey.

    It's just service/data connectivity/etc... your bb is constantly sending and receiving data.

    No, it's just searching for service basically. Just like any other phone.

    The blue arrows are for sending and receiving data, hence one pointing "in" and the other pointing "out", so they don't have anything to do with text messages or phone calls. if you don't have unlimited data service then i think you would be charged for whatever is sent and received...

    I had one of the original BB pager style units 7 years ago and it also did the same thing. The real interesting thing is that you can hear this even in speakers that are not turned on.

    My Nokia phone used to do the same thing but my Moto Razr did not.

    The ARROWS are actually a trademark of blackberrys and have been with it from the beginning. '

    They basically show you when the handset is connecting to different networks and receiving info back and forth. Thats just about it..
