You wrote that your phone might be "doing some sort of cross encoding" and that "the bit rate of a channel is determined by that channels S/N ratio". Regarding the second statement, no, the SNR provides a theoretical upper bound in capacity (measured in th b/s). I was responding to these theories you were making. I think I understood just fine what you wrote, but perhaps not what you meant. :-) Welcome to head-fi!
