    Wow, wish I could get my hands on one of those babies. I would fix those inconsiderate swine who constantly take calls in movie theaters.

    Reminds me of the cell phone that rang in church during a sermon.
    The preacher walked down from the pulpit to the section of pews where the
    interruption occurred and announced...."If God is calling you, he isn't going to use a cell phone".

    Not a bad idea. Would work nicely in theaters.

    Simple, you do not have the right to block MY communication in a public arena. I do not know the specific laws but I have a strong suspicion that personal essentially means that you cannot walk down the street with one of these (or place one on the outside of your hose for instance) BUT if you owned a business you could buy one for that purpose. Such a law only would make sense as it should be illegal for you to block out my communication device at any time that I am NOT on your property.

    I fail to see why the business owner of a restaurant or a church shouldn't be allowed to install one on the premises?

    Just put up a 'Cell Phone Jammer in Use' sign making patrons aware of it being used next to the 'No smoking' sign'. .. :cool:
