To revolt is a natural tendency of life. Even a worm turns against the foot that crushes it. In general, the vitality and relative dignity of an animal can be measured by the intensity of its instinct to revolt.

Mobile Phone Signal Jamming Around the House of Our Lord Chief Justice

"Human Rights Watch says Chaudhry has managed to communicate with the outside world intermittently by mobile telephones smuggled into his home, but the government has repeatedly used signal jamming equipment and other means to disable them. The group also says Chaudhry has not had access to television or newspapers since November 3." The Guardian has reported.

Read this report by Human Rights Watch for the whole picture.

Here is the description of the day when Musharraf tried to remove the Chief Justice on March 9, 2007. This was the situation before the Emergency. Let us not think they were benign then. A dictator is a dictator is a dictator.

I experienced a similar problem. When I bought my iPhone, I first checked with “Got Reception?” (Gotreception.com) It’s a great resource for finding out where reception problems are most likely to occur BEFORE you lock yourself with a specific carrier.
