This already happens in a lot of venues via the use of conductive paint
that shields the room.
They must have this kind of paint effective on only the A band 800 Mhz at
WalMart in the Oakbrook Shopping District of Summerville, SC. When you
walk into Walmart with a Verizon phone, about 8 ft inside the front door,
the phone searches briefly for Verizon then says NO SERVICE for the whole
rest of the time you're in WalMart! Other carriers are unaffected. Sprint
on PCS has 4 bars, Alltel on 800 B system is full scale! Only VZW has NO
I like to hang out there on Saturdays to pay my Alltel bill if I have
nothing better to do. I carry Alltel referral cards from the guys in the
office all filled out with my Alltel info on the back as referrer, then
when I see someone angry at their NO SERVICE phone, I simply offer to let
them make their call to anyone on Alltel over my Z6m. After they've handed
my phone back, they usually ask what service it's on and I tell them it's
Alltel's 700 minutes for $39/mo. Of course, they pay LOTS more for half as
many nationwide minutes they can't use in WalMart and that's my opportunity
to press my finder's card into their sweaty hands. "Here. Take this card
to the Alltel office by the Coliseum where you turn to go to the other
SuperWalmart and they'll make you a good deal on a new phone on Alltel that
works around here."
If I weren't so lazy, I would be in sales.....(c;
I've even met some of my referrees who've offered to let me make a call on
THEIR phones to pay me back....(c;
Thank you, Verizon!
