I think jammers should be allowed in concert halls, theatres, churches and most of all cinemas. All the places where people are expected to turn their phones off anyway.

If everyone is supposed to have their phone off in the cinema, and there is an emergency.. how is that different to if everyone's phone is jammed in the cinema and there is an emergency.. or just being in a reception blackspot. They'll still get the message when they leave, like they would normally.

I'm not sure places like restaurants should have jammers, but people should set their phones on silent.

If the industry is worried, why can't they make a "switch to silent" standard that allows the "jammer" to just toggle all the phones into silent mode?

Its illegal to use your phone when driving in the uk.. if you are caught you get a big fine, and points on your license.
