These days, it is almost impossible to catch a movie, or eat in the restaurant, and will not let the phone sounded interrupted.
"Sometimes I went to a restaurant where I wanted to enjoy a meal or coffee, read quietly, and someone started talking loudly on their cell phone, which was annoying," said Charles Crowder, a resident of Oakland, California.
The world's more than 100 million mobile phone growth, the problem may be getting worse. In the United States alone, it is estimated that within five years, 84% of US citizens will have mobile phones.
However, the rebound for cell nuisance has already begun. Restaurants in the United States, requiring visitors to turn off the phone logo is more and more common. In Baxter State Park, Maine, in addition to emergency situations, the phone is illegal. Resistance even reached the White House: President Bush reportedly banned mobile phone staff meetings.
In fact, several governments around the world are considering the legalization of cell signal technology, in the public space on the phone to add rituals.
Mobile Phone Jammers have been in existence since 1998. Interference to send low power coded radio signals or modulated radio waves.
The jammers work in one of two ways. Some devices set their signals to the same frequency as pagers and mobile phones, thereby disconnecting traffic between the handset and the base station. Other people as an electronic filter, fool the phone, that no frequency can be used to make or receive calls. Interference only affects the specified area (most of the radius is tens to hundreds of feet) and can only work on cellular transmissions.
Sounds like a perfect solution for the phone? The problem is that in addition to Israel and Japan, most developed countries, including the United States, Britain, Canada, Switzerland and Australia, mobile phone jammers are still illegal.
However, the tide may be changing. In the past spring, both Hong Kong and Canada have announced that they will consider legalizing the means of interference to curb public telephone behavior. At about the same time, the leaders of the Indian parliament revealed that they had installed the WiFi jammers to avoid interruption during the meeting.
However, this major change in the legal outlook is not so far-fetched as the public's dissatisfaction with chirping continues to grow. Last year, Letstalk.com found that 57 percent of Americans favored phone calls from restaurants, theaters and other public places.
