You know how annoying those cellphone's are in grocery stores, restaurants,etc. Is there a device made to block or disrupt cellphones that is portable? Something you could turn on in a restaurant,etc. to stop phone transmissions,etc.

And if such a device was available I think you would find Ajit Pai and his Merry Men at the FCC coming down on you like a ton of bricks. I am reasonably sure that the use of such equipment by a private citizen in the USA is illegal.

 

Various organs of the US Government might find a legal reason for doing this, but I am certain you would have problems if you tried it !

As Chris has pointed out. It is illegal in the US for private citizens to do. Since this is a US based website and we do follow US laws that is the basis for the information.

Along with the illegalities of such a device, I would ask: would you willingly let a personal aggravation supersede a medical crisis, commission of a crime or a disaster from being reported?
