Ran into this same situation in Jamaica.
The Cellular companies paid lots of money for their 850, 1800, 1900 MHz assignments, and they argued that the government was trespassing on their channel assignments with their jammers.
How wonderrfully quaint having the lawyers defending those already incarcerated.

>There is quite a bru-ha-ha stirred up down here in Charleston from time to time about jamming cell phones at prisons. It seems like a good idea at first, since the prisoners seem to have no trouble at all in getting cell phones and conducting gang business from their cells. (HA! another meaning of "cell phone"!). But, the prison authority seems to have a rather difficult (impossible) time getting permission to run the jammers from the FCC, or other federal agencies, and are unwilling to move forward without that permission.
>So, this is one case where the current administration is helping private enterprises conduct their growing businesses.
