Cell Phone & Video Jammers - Who Can Use Them?

What is a cell phone jammer?

A cell phone jammer is an instrument used to prevent cellular phones from receiving and transmitting the mobile signals to a base station. When used, the jammer effectively disables cellular phones in the area. These devices can be used in practically any location, but are found primarily in locales where a phone call would be particularly disruptive. These include churches, mosques, libraries, movie theaters, meeting rooms, and other places where silence is expected.

Pros and Cons of Using Cell Phone Jammers

There are a few reasons why the use and sale of jammers are illegal in the US and the UK. For example, if someone needed to make a 911 one, the use of a cell phone jammer could lead to a loss of someone's life. Jammers could also be used by burglars or thieves to prevent a person from calling 911.

There are also pros to having a cell phone jammer. Cell phone jammers can stop the detonation of bombs controlled by cell phones. Having a jammer in this situation could save hundreds of lives.
