It turns out that it was the lines coming into my home from Verizon. I
plugged a analog phone directly into the terminating jack and can hear
the humming noise quite clearly.
I never heard it until I setup the Polycom. My guess is that the
GrandStream is either too great of a phone or too poor quality of a
phone (i'll let you determine that one) to have picked up the noise like
the Polycom did. This is why I never checked the line directly, I
assumed it was the new phone since nothing else had changed.
On the plus side, playing with the rx/txgain settings, Asterisk did
minimize the noise pretty well. ;)
