Yes I know that issue. The late production one with newest TL175 twist guard CAT IV leads does not suffer that GSM bug. I know bcs I tested the one I got a few months ago on a good opportunity I hit on ebay coming from Middle East. That one was Amazon USA level pricing but it only showed up again at 450$. Thankfully it survived the customs with only mm away from the instrument box inspect knife cut and no tax.

Do you think the 87 and 87 III have this issue too?

Its not mentioned for earlier models, probably not being tested for that by users as far as I have seen. This is a truly minor issue for practical use even if with inflicted serial numbers mind you. Brand new 87V of late production are revised. Board Rev 011.

I finally got a mint Fluke 87V meter and it has Board Rev 10 on the box says 08/2010 and it does not have any problems with GSM.

P.S. Maybe there are different frequencies in USA GSM? Certainly that issue was reported in foreign countries that FLUKE has no design facilities.

Maybe you are right! I try with a few cell and nothing. I know the 87v have Rev 09, 10, 11. mine is rev 10. Well for the price that I paid $160 mint condition (see pictures in my other thread) I would not mind if it had that minor issue.
This is the best meter I ever had!!!
