Several cities ticket drivers for using a phone while a vehicle is in motion - the in-car installation of Phone Jammers would take this action a step further, and prove this current ticketing practice is not just a means of acquiring additional revenue.

It is quite easy to see cell phone jammers installed in the majority of theaters, concert halls, sporting events, and religious venues within the next decade. Personal use of handheld jammers is likely to remain in a grey area, as the use of such equipment infringes on the rights of others and could be used to block communications prior to criminal activity, much like the physical act of cutting a telephone line.

The wide-scale implementation of mobile phone jamming technology has its benefits, but these benefits come along with direct infringement on your personal rights by denying a service you pay to maintain twenty-four hours a day. The denials would definitely cause alarm and a feeling of helplessness in many situations - the anxiety felt after cutting the umbilical cord between you and your smart phone.

Blocking cell phone data transfer is an all or nothing situation – as of now, one cannot create a device that blocks personal calls but allows emergency calls to be made. The denial of access to emergency services is a sticking point in several attempts to place the Portable Jammer in schools in the United States and Canada.
