Two semi-related issues. Basically, both my mouse and my cell phone make weird sounds come out of my computer speakers. [more]

#1: I always know a moment before my cell phone rings, because my speakers start buzzing like a beehive. I have a Nokia 3630. What's happening and what kind of phone should I get if I want it to stop? I like to keep my clock radio and my cell phone on my bedstand but I can't because it makes the speaker in the clock radio chirp all night.
#2: My USB Microsoft Wheel Mouse makes a tiny "eek-eek" sound come out of the computer's speakers whenever I use the mouse wheel. Each step in the wheel turn emits a squeak. It gets louder as I turn up the speakers, so I know it's not mechanical friction. Any advice on stopping it? It gets distracting when I least need to be distracted.
