Spammer Dead... but a decent subject... Phone Jammers

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

there was one app that was suggested for this use that uses the accelerometer to stop them from working while they are moving over a certain speed. problem is it would impact passengers as well.
I think you're getting confused with that awful Keanu Reeves movie.

The place where I often long for a cell phone jammer is the airport. Whenever I'm sitting in the departure lounge, invariably someone will sit down near me and start carrying on a loud cell phone conversation.

Jealous because you have no one to call?

I do use the business lounges pretty often, and I am often subjected to annoying cell phone calls there, but I didn't want to say "business lounge" because it would have sounded pretentious.

Thats sucks. I've never really noticed loud people in there, but it could easily be the time of day I tend to travel as well I guess. I generally shoot for overnight flights. Cheaper, more empty seats, and I can just sleep on the plane.
