Putting a fine mesh around the cells is all well and good, but what about when the cell door is open? Unless they keep it shut all the time the prisoner is inside, the signal will have a way out. They also might be able to get creative in finding a way to get a signal out, by snaking an antenna down the toilet into the plumbing vent. Or cutting a small hole in the wall through the mesh and covering it with a picture of Rita Hayworth.

Plus what about prisoners using phones in the laundry, shower, exercise yard, etc.? Are you going to put a fine mesh screen over those areas, including the yard? I guess that would stop the problem of tossing drugs over the wall or dropping them in via drone...
