Phone Jammers

So tempted to buy one of these and take it with me every time I go to the cinema :)

Cell Phone Jammer



Why cinemas don't install jammers in their screens (or use that special wallpaper that jams the signal) I'll never know.

But still, a group of us could club together, buy one of these things (It's only £130) and whomever is going to the cinema can take it for the day/night!

I'd love one of those. Cinemas, pubs, shops and buses would be free of irritating ring tones.

I thought they were ilegal though for some reason?

No sure, but if they are I imagine it would be because people like Doctors need to be very contactable.

Meanwhile - any news on www.dragonmeet.com ?

I thought they were not allowed jammers on the grounds that doctors, rescue service people and the like might be in there and needed urgently.

The UK may be different, but in the US doctors still rely heavily on pagers: they have fewer blackout zones and are more reliable.

That thing is highly illegal in most of the world, not for any sensible reason but because it does send radio signals in a licensed part of the radio spectrum without a license for it, if say O2 for example wants to sell those, then they can, as they are licensed.

And there is a ruling by a court judge that those are illegal on "moral grounds" as it can prevent a Doctor or another emergency service personnel from receiving a text message whilst the phone is on vibrate, which would not disturb the movie at all.

The anti-signal paint/screen is totally legal thought, cinemas could be pressured into adopting those....

They actually do have some jamming in some theaters in the US.

It doesn't interfere with the speakers at all?
