Inspiron 5459 i5 Display Flickers when receiving and sending a text message

The laptop is just 5 days old and I noticed that whenever I receive/send a text message or call (from my phone nearby), the screen flickers about five times. Similar to how speakers make a bleeping noise when near a phone.

I'm not worried about speakers but should I be worried about my screen?

Note: I have used many laptops before, and a lot more desktops; this is the first time that I encountered screen flicker due to my phone's radio.

i usually have my cell phone near my systems and I haven't heard of a phone causing a problem like that, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.  I can't think of anything that you might do other than keep the phone away from the system, but I don't think that there will be any lasting damage to the LCDs
