They apparently interfere with emergency vehicle signals too/Radio's (the Israeli one especially - the ones you can buy over the interwebz) and therefore would interfer with comms. Heard a story that they can have decent range so can inadvertently jam signals outside of the premises.

From memory when I asked the same question to one of the Prison Officers on my Sqn, jamming was trialled in some prisons and found that: they interfere with official comms, can be avoided, don't cover all the available bands, annoy the neighbours, give people headaches (?) and are really fcuking expensive.

They're using detector chairs and wands now.

I suggested that they just watch the post and pull up any prisoner who gets a bill from Vodaphone...

Unfortunately...

Note for UK customers: jamming equipment is illegal to use in the UK as it violates section 8 of the 2006 Wireless Telegraphy Act, we are therefore unable to supply jammers to any UK customer with the exception of certain military and government departments who have the necessary authorisation from the UK Office of Communications (Ofcom). Please note that no exceptions can be made on this policy.

That one would be no good, UTMS (3G to you and I) works between 1800MHz to 2.2GHz. It would only be effective in areas that aren't 3G yet or to phones that have switched it off.

Expensive. for 30 mins quiet just smash the fkers phone up.
But it doesn't jut work once, I travel on the train twice a day in a lovely quiet compartment with no nobbers saing " Oh Yah I am on the train, or playing games, it even stops PCs working so no noisey clicking either. It is truly a joy to watch the annoyance of some who cannot text for 10 minutes!!

Yeah, I saw that about 8-10 years ago when I first thought of getting one. Obviously I use my phone a lot, but I do not scream, shout, swear or grunt unintelligibly into it like many of the cretins I seem to see on public transport daily. As I am unable to do anything to them personally (oh how I would like to sometimes), I am starting to think about this again. Discreetly of course.

I would have thought that permanently fixed mobile phone signal detectors where place around the joint, thus creating a location and alarm if one was switched on, with subsequent jamming signal too.

Thus, no call can be made in that vicinity when the naughty phone is turned on, the guards will react promptly on it being turned on and the phone will be grabbed after search in the location of the device.

Job jobbed, or is that too simple?
