Why the hell not? Suppose someone doesn't want to hear everybody's inane ramblings about boyfriends/MTV/today's crappy culture? I sure as hell don't, and that's one way to deal with it.

Doesn't that also stop the signal from going to the person using cell phone jammer, if they have a cell phone?

Sure it does. If you have a cell phone on you and you want to use it, you definitely don't want a jammer doing its thing. But if you want some privacy, and don't want to hear other people's utterly stupid conversations in surround sound...just whip a jammer out.

but these spell doom for us customer service reps, because we have to sit and listen to customers yell at us for our crappy coverage when they can't get a signal due to jammers. Bah.

Just wait until you are trying to use your phone and someone is blocking your signal.

Well then I'll just have to walk away from the jammer and *presto chango* instant signal. That was hard.

What about the guy in the article that said he followed someone for 20 minutes until the guy threw down his cell phone. Also, if more and more people are buying them it could become a huge problem. But you don't have a problem with not being able to make calls so it's ok.

So some guy follows me around for 20 minutes and gets me aggravated...big deal. And if it becomes a big problem? Who cares? I lived without a cell phone until the summer of '02.

Yes, i totally agree with the above person. Whether you use the cell phone jammer or not depends on your privacy. I also bought one from http://www.jammerall.com, and i only use it when i want to.

if someone is running jammer to block sprint because he just hate sprint to death
then sprint users can't use the phone in the affected area (sprint uses CDMA1900), also T-Mobile, Cingular (in 1900 area) are getting affected too
this device MUST be prohibited for unauthorized use, because this causes mass chaos here and there

This is not good at all....

I perfectly understand people being annoyed at having to listen to the mundane details of others' lives, but REALLY? Do we have to stoop to this level? You still have to deal with this any time two people are conversing with one another face to face in a restaurant, an elevator, a hallway, etc.

What about the PUBLIC SAFETY end of things? I wouldn't want someone I care about to not receive the help they need because some pig-headed, selfish, "I'm better than everybody else" lowlife was more concerned with not having to listen to any cellphones within a 200 ft range of himself. 911 calls could be blocked!

People who complain about others using cellphones need to be a little more thick-skinned about it...

I can halfway understand that, BUT, unfortunately, 911 calls are not the only type of emergency calls I still don't like it. I myself am a churchgoing person, & I know to put my phone on silent/vibrate when entering a house of worship as well as a cinema. People should do this regardless.

There is another problem with using the jammer in those buildings though: I used to work for ServiceMaster (a disaster restoration company) where I had to be on call 24/7 to take care of peoples houses that flooded. What about service professionals who are on call 24/7 & may need to be re...

I understand that end of it too, Jessie. I work for one of Cingular's premier agent companies so we don't have to put up the "authorized agent of" signs & we look just like a corporate store. People wrongly assume that we do repairs on the phones & come to me all the time complaining about their phones expecting that I can work miracles for them. Although this would be an unfortunate result of the jammers, its secondary to the public safety end of things. Wink
