Any way to enforce it ?
Usually the free charging is enough of a incentive.

Probably not. Some of it will probably involve the Rov hounding repeat offenders.

Just want to point out that blocking signals doesn't mean they won't be able to use their phones at all. It'll eliminate the noise perhaps, and some people don't do much on their phones that doesn't involve internet connectivity - but it's not a full solution. The only full solution is not to have it in shul at all.

There's a guy I see in shul every so often that davens shmona esrai in a minute or two, and then sits down and plays some sort of candy crush type of game. And this wasn't a one time occurrence.

I'm pretty sure Reb Levi Yitzchok would have something to say about that...

I'm not saying he shouldn't be there at all. He even learns with the daf yomi shiur before daveneing, something I'm incapable of getting up early enough for. The point is that a jammer doesn't solve that kind of thing.

I don't know where you plan on using it, but whatever you do don't ship it to the US. It's illegal and they actually do hunt people down for this

I would actually like to see this happen, and a case go for a legal challenge. I think shuls (and lehavdil theaters etc.) should get an exemption and allow blocking of cell phone signals.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

What happens if  C"V there's an emergency and you lose 20 seconds of being able to call Hatzolah or 911 while waiting to find a landline or to get out of the blocked zone?

or if someone can't get in touch with you during an emergency like a missile alert from Hawaii

thats why hatzola reccomends every shul have a highly visible " red phone" direct line..... those are probably faster than a cell phone if its in the right place because its direct dial & dispatch can immediately see where you are calling from
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

There is ways to program a raspberry P1 to jam signals for Wi-Fi maybe cell signals as well(I don't know how)

Either way I hope that was a joke about putting it in shul, it would not solve "the issue" but just the symptom.

Let alone potentially setting yourself up for disaster if/when people find out about it.

Whatever, just sayin...

I agree that it doesn't "solve" the "issue" but does address the symptom. That being said, most people do see value in addressing symptoms, or else sales of ibuprofen and acetaminophen would plunge.

No need to keep it secret. On the contrary, have it well publicized.

An emergency phone is coming, a panic button exists.
We are talking about a big room, that's it.

The only difference is that this "pill" helps ones headach but gives a headach to others..

Also, I believe people that are "so obsessed" with it to the extent of putting a jammer also have an underlying issue just like the ones actually on the phone.

But yes, it will solve your "headach" and it is a open market.

Tachless, anyone knows where I could buy one?
Only found some shady Hong Kong site selling them.
