VNC might be really slow over dialup though, you'd need to use Tight encoding with JPEG quality cranked all the way down to make it usable at all.

I will admit to trying such stupidity and confirm that this is true. Watching a screen refresh, even when using -compresslevel 9 and -bgr233 is very painful over dialup. Try to avoid it if at all possible.

SSH, OTOH, is fairly usable by dialup.

And I'll make it a point to start worrying about inconveniencing others when they start doing the same for me. After all, if folks would actually think about everyone around them that they're pissing off when they fire up that phone in ( insert any number of inappropriate places here ) then the rest of us wouldn't NEED a jammer now would we ?

I am sure that rationale will be a great consolation when one of your neighbours dies of a heart attack because his family couldn't call for an ambulance.

I agree with Garble Snarky. Further, if there is coax involved, finding one antenna will enable you to follow the cable back to the device.

In all seriousness, though, FCC fines or not, and regardless what you think of the FCC, don't fuck with this stuff. If you prevent an emergency call from going through, someone could die. Just don't mess with comms.

Easy. With the exception of Verizon*, they can charge extra for things like tethering your phone. I'm sure there are other examples as well, but there's a starting point.

(* VZ got their hands slapped for charging extra for tethering. They got slapped because VZ is using some spectrum which, thanks to Google's playing in the auction, has a net neutrality string attached to it. The other three carriers are not bound by this provision)
