Cell phone jammer - Page 2

This is like Spy vs Spy. They should install jammers in movie theaters. I can't count how many times I'm watching a movie, somebody's cell phone rings, and instead of turning it off, they answer it, and continue talking. Really pisses me off.

the main suggested use for jammers is theatres.

Well, I certainly hope that he has money in his wallet to pay his doc's bill. Apparently one can set the radius on this gizmo. And believe it or not, there was life (and death) before the cell phone, and so it shall be afterward.
Well, in the case that he doesn't have money to pay, I suppose you're doing us all a public service so that he doesn't make it to the emergency room where he will be treated and not pay his bill, increasing the cost of emergency room visits to the rest of us. Dislaimer: If anybody can't tell that this is a joke...I don't know, but I'd be impressed that you can breath on your own.

Well -- when I find one small enough, that doesn't take up a lot of room -- something smaller than a packet of cigs., I'll get it. As far as I know, they don't block emergency signals like doctors' beepers, and whatnot. Once purchased, I think I'll just keep the bugger on 24/7. what I object to is some a$$hole talking loudly in a coffee shop or restaurant. There's a no talking loudly or on the phone rule at my club, so that's fine, but out in public it's another story. Anyway, Imagewis fear not my presence in Florida. I'd avoid that area like the plague. But should we ever have to duel, rest assured I'm ready. Pip pip, H.
Well, I do travel... Jon.

One thing to remember....they are illegal. Also, no one makes a small enough one to carry, the smallest I've seen are notebook PC size.

So carry it in a laptop case. If it weren't for the emergency calls issue, I would go for it. I hate cell phones, it would be nice to just disable them in a radius around me.

The funniest is when people use those little ear piece and microphone sets. One time I was having, like, a 3 minute conversation w/this black dude in Borders when I realized he was on a cell phone and wasn't talking to me at all. Other times it's hard to tell if they're on cell phones or just crazy, or really religious and concerned that God can't hear them if they talk to themselves.

Maybe they're just afraid of the radiation, like Maury Ballstein.

People who walk around talking on their hands-free devices do look crazy. I only use mine while driving, or occasionally when I need to be able to use the keyboard or something. I think that movie theaters, libraries, places of worship, etc. should able to install jammers.

Also, classes. There is a girl who sits next to me in one of my classes and talks on her cell phone during lectures almost every day. I swear, if I was a professor, I would say before class every time "Please turn off your cells now," and if I caught a phone ringing or a person talking they would be dropped from the class. Honestly, you have a person who spent eight+ years training and learning sharing their wisdom with you, and you have the audacity to talk on your cell to your boyfriend during a lecture? This is exactly why I hate cellphones. You shouldn't be calling someone to tell them you'll be there in five minutes - just show up. Also, if you use your phone in the car, drive in the slow lane and only use it on the freeway. Intracity streets are too dangerous to be talking on the phone with, yet I see it all the time.

I'm almost certain that I read years ago about theatres in Hong Kong jamming cell phone/pager signals.

But I wouldn't tolerate the way she disrupts class and imposes ignorance on others. I'd just give my lecture from right behind her (or, barring that, from as close as possible). If your professor can't move from the front of the room how about some social pressure? A little staring by people around her or a few comments should do the trick. Polite confrontation can be a great tactic. Shame can work wonders. Of course, for those who don't respond to polite confrontation, the jammer does sound appealing.

ok, ok, but on the other side, some of us work on their cell phones. I hate to inconvenience you all, but I can't just drop my life so that you can have a pleasant and quiet gossip in the coffee shop/train/plane/ etc (although I do turn my phone to silent and stick to SMS's and emails when I am in a theatre and I really try not to talk in resteraunts). I spend hours every day on the phone, starting at about 5:30 am and usually with my last set of calls at about midnight. sorry, but I am not going to spend my time waiting for calls outside or at home (its bad enough I can't smoke cigars in cafes anymore)- I deal with the calls while doing what I need to do - driving, picking my son up/dropping him off/waiting for him to finish gym/music/spanish classes, in the super market, our with friends, etc.

Whilst I don't necessarily disagree with your POV regarding cell phone use, I will admit that there is a huge difference between smoking indoors and talking on a cell phone indoors. One is hazardous to ones health; the other is not. If you wish to smoke cigars, by all means do so, but not at the expense of the health of others. Jon.
