Christian your words about working in the field , and have an issue are justified .

The only immediate solution is to get an 28II , so to stop thinking about it.
But from another point of view , there is so many other reasons, that could send an multimeter to the hospital  ;D
And so the " delay part " about sending the multimeter , its part of the game .. always was.

I don't know how I've managed to miss this. I'm waiting for a 2nd hand ebay Fluke 87V to land on my doorstep anytime now and now I find this... Are there any ways I could make my meter less susceptable to this kinda damage? Unfortunately I own both a phone with gsm (who doesn't these days?!) and a router which are in the same room where I'll be using the damn thing!

No worries unless you place the phone directly next to your meter.... ditto for the router.  I have a similar router about 3 feet away from where I do my measurements and I've never had any interaction. My phone is closer (in my pocket) and I can't see how I would ever place it any closer to my Fluke so I'm not worried. Even IF I were to brick my Fluke, I'm confident Fluke would fix the meter. This does not mean I'm happy with the way Fluke has dealt with this issue.... just that I'm confident in that if this were to occur to me...... I'd be taken care of by Fluke.

Or... as Mechatrommer said...... don't put your phone right next to your meter! :-)

Regards

Christian

Hello!

I want to buy one of these multimeters. I have found some 87V's on an online shop and I think that they may have this GSM issue.

Is there a way to tell if a 87V does not have the GSM issue? Can I ask something to the seller to make sure that the 87V is an updated one?

Thanks!

Hi!

I sent an email to Fluke, but no one replied.

So guys, is there any other Fluke multimeter that has the same features this one has? Could you please recommend one? (Without the GSM glitch of course  ;D )

Thanks!  8)
