Sounds cool, but totally sounds like hogwash. The story belongs on The Onion. (how did they get everyone in the cinemas cell number.)

The wonders of the commerical are the first ten seconds where a device is shown along with a display. As each patron entered the movie, the active cell phone signals were collected and back linked to their number. What's even more interesting is that in an EMI prepared space, any incoming signals would be blocked. There are both active and passive ways to block incoming/outgoing signals. That cell phone is transmitting a signal back to the closest tower whenever or whereever it is when turned on. The impact was very scary for those who saw it first hand. Now imagine being there and not having a phone. . . Your attention might have been diverted momentaraly but you'd be looking at the screen and those looking at the phone would hear the sound but are slow to look up and ask "What happened?".

Doesn't seem legal.

There was also talk about big shopping centers in Australia doing it some time ago, To help customers by sending TXT messages about various bargains in the center. EG. Hello sir while you are near Johns suits, we would like to point out that Versachi suits are on special type of thing, Westfields I think. Or while you were in a theater a TXT saying buy popcorn.
How stores use your phone’s WiFi to track your shopping habits
@ TsVk it was on A current affair and 60 minutes if I remember right.
This is funny.

My normally skeptical personality has failed me for once.
