Grocery store - By the doors, movie theater - outside by the ticket booths, high school - inside by the front gate (but students aren't supposed to use them during school), don't go to church, the mall - various entrances.
There is the other method mentioned in the NYTimes article. It involves having the phone automatically go into silent mode when people go into certain areas.
It mostly boils down to the person. Yeah, they have silent mode on, but then they go and have a conversation during the movie. I've yelled at a few people to turn off their damn phones. Usually they do the "How rude" thing and hang up.
