Cell phone use in classrooms is now so rampant that the students now think they have a right to use them during class. They are not listening to instruction and directions need to be repeated many times because they were texting, listening to music on their phone playing a game or watching a video or movie. Some students have even taken or made a voice call during class. Blocking the phone in a classroom is for the good of the students.
To many people on their phones not paying any attention to what's going on around them. Especially drivers, distracted driving is way too dangerous. Or how about Workplace conversations... You are not being paid to be on your phone, playing candy crush or what other video games. Not to mention facebook . Its really too much.
Just because someone thinks that people always will have the need to communicate is also a glorified way of supporting cell phone usage. Jammers should be legalized, in public libraries, in schools, colleges etc. (At least in classrooms) Vehicles should be equipped with cell phone jammers when the vehicle is in motion (Kill switches automatically activated when an accident is detected, when the vehicle is not in gear etc...)
It's nonsense to believe that people are so busy in there every day lives that they need to be on their cell phones during specific events. (Church, School, Libraries, in moving motor vehicles)
Secondly on private institutions a particular business owner should also have the right to decide if his/her establishment allowed cell phone usage include up to installing jammers (As long as the signal jamming device does no extend beyond the walls of that establishment)
Im sorry but there is just no good enough reason to need your cell phone in service during school hours. If there were ever to be a real need of emergency, there's always a phone available to any student who needs it on school campus. Coming from a recent graduated high school student, i can honestly say that all cell phones are used for in school 99% of the time is just for texting your friend in another class, taking pictures, surfing internet, and 'passing time' through the social networks during a teachers lecture. Im not saying jammers should be legal everywhere, but just within school grounds where students are encouraged to focus more in education during school hours and as soon as school is over and they leave the affected grounds, they can turn their phones on again and they'll have their service for whatever they need it as soon as they're off school grounds. Or as a more convenient way, these jammers DO come with an On and Off switch, the school principal can just activate and deactivate this device for the appropriate school hours.
If you have a cell [phone jammer criminals could use that to jam people calling the cops on them i i i i i i ii i i i i ii i i i ii i ii i i i ii i i i i ii i i ii i hate the yesses
No. People will always have the need to communicate, even in the most inconvenient of places. The legalization of cell phone jammers will simply open up the ability for privately owned establishments to decide whether or not they want people to be able to use their phones while visiting their facility. This would create a multitude of problems.
Cell phone jammers should only be available to law enforcement agencies and other entities who might need to block cell phones for safety, such as airports. Civilians could use cell phone jammers to isolate crime victims, preventing them from calling 911. Commercial interests could use cell phone jammers to force people to use pay phones.
