Removing iPhone interference *in post*

I've seen a number of threads on avoiding iPhone/cell phone sound interference during production (namely by turning off phones! and by choosing your mics carefully), but has anyone had luck getting rid of the dreadful iPhone data-searching sound once its embedded in your audio *in post*?

Probably a long shot, but thought I'd check to see if there were secret fixes...

Check out Izotope RX2. It does some amazing things. There's a free trial you can download. I bought it to minimize some clipped audio and I've found myself coming back to it time and again for quick, high quality fixes. Totally worth the asking price.

It's a pretty doable process with any spectral repair tool. RX2 has a great one, Adobe Audition has one, Magix Samplitude and Sequoia has one...

You'll see the interference very clearly and with the spectral repair tools, you just draw a box around it and let the software interpolate it out.

Re: Removing iPhone interference *in post*

While this isn't exactly what you were asking, I had a project where somebody's phone "Dinged" really loudly right in the middle of a word during an interview, and I really wanted the sentence. The client mentioned it and I just wasn't sure what to do because it was literally in the middle of the word. I used Adobe's spectral tool in Audition and actually just drew a circle around the ding and it was magically gone without affecting the speaker one bit - not even the usual slight distortion. So echoing what others are saying - it's fixable probably.
