Oh, not that kind of cell signaling? My bad.
Cell phone jammers are illegal in the US and many other countries because they willfully interfere with a legitimately licensed radio device. In the case of phones, they could disrupt an emergency call, and anyone who works for a phone company can tell you that opens up a really big can of liability.
If someone's being a nuisance, you're better off publicly humiliating them for being a lunkhead than merely ending their call. They're more likely to learn a lesson that way anyways.
Cell phone boosters...now that's interesting. I'm kind of curious how they work, since interference and timing can be major issues TDMA-type networks.
