    I would do that if there wasn't a risk I'd make the news.

    I don't mind conversations on the bus but I hate it when people play music through their phone speakers and don't use earphones. If the jammer can disable that, it would be great.

    I really think every owner of a restaurant should receive a one along with their license.

    AND passed out at every movie theater or live theater!!!!


    I recently went to see a film and the lady (aged 40+) kept checking her iPhone.

    You know how bright those screens are!! icon_mad.gif

    So, every time she checked it, I kicked her seat back! She soon stopped.

    omg awesome! That would entertain me the whole ride.

    Headphones are annoying too, when the music is louder than comfortable for the person wearing them. Sometimes I think they want people to hear their music, like the douches who drive around with the windows down blaring their pimped speakers.

    The worst worst worst though, is when you make the mistake of boarding the bus when high school just got out, and a quiet ride turns to a cacophony of uninteresting and ignorant teenagers releasing their pent-up chatter. NEVER catch the bus at 3-3:30pm!

    I like to meet this man..I would do it any where in a tight closed in confined area..Why do people think i need to listen to their conversation,is beyound me..
    At work,in the airports,subways,planes..I just want peace and quite..
    Instead of having a smoking area in the airports and in front of pubilc buildings,i think that ALL CELL PHONE USERS,MUST GO OUTSIDE AND CHAT,IN THE RAIN,SNOW,SUZ ZERO WEATHER IF YOU MUST CHAT AT A HIGH VOCAL LEVEL..

    This is illogical to me. Reason being is he's stopping people from talking on a phone, but not from two people from talking to each other in person. Therefore, I find his actions to be selfish and unfair.

    I've found the following technique helpful in restaurants where somebody at the next table is having a too-loud cell conversation. You start making audible comments responding to their remarks. In most cases they'll immediately speak softly or even hang up.
    Of course you need to use some discretion about when and where to do this.

    Someone is a bus cellphone talker!

    No one talks to each other on the bus. No one even makes eye contact on the bus.

    People on phones generally talk louder than people talking face to face.

    I think the jammer is a great idea. People on phones in public are almost as annoying as crying babies in a restaurant.

    Schools need these! This guy in my class got a call in the middle of the lecture, took him 5 rings and then he answered it, "Oh hey! Oh no I'm in the middle of class right now I can't, hahaha. Okay, I'll give that a try. What did she say about it?" I want to kill him every time I see him.

    In the situation you described, we get to hear both sides of the conversation. More interesting. Less annoying. Why do I crave popcorn right now at 8AM?

    Yeah just because he doesn't like it he decides to jam all cell phones. I just listen to my music and it drowns out all the unwanted noises.

    What if somebody was trying to reach someone on the bus for an emergency?

    In the US jamming cell signals is a federal felony. Only the federal government, specifically the FCC, has the power to jam any radio signal.

    Several years ago at a restaurant with picnic tables, two separate groups could be seated at the same table. A friend and I were seated at a table where four were already seated. They appeared annoyed and started talking loudly, making it difficult for my friend and me to have a conversation. So we started talking about things like nuclear destruction, people killed, collateral damage, how we thought that was all good, etc. The other four got real quiet, had horrified expressions on their faces, hurriedly finished their meals and left. Had a good laugh.
