My Samsung Galaxy s5 mobile phone somehow plays audio on 87.6 FM with out an FM transmitter connected how?
I found this out when I was getting interference and my phone was causing it.

Well your phone does have a FM like transmitter inside it otherwise it would not be very mobile...

However in this case you are overloading the radio's local oscillator no doubt.
