I know that the Yamanote now has announcements to ask people to turn their
phones off, not just not answer them. The reason given is to avoid trouble
Also, I've read that British Rail uses a fine mesh over train windows to
shield cars completely.
In Shanghai, at the Hilton, I placed a call from a celphone and the screen
said "EMERGENCIES ONLY!" before I started dialing.

Included in the instruction manual for new phones is a page telling
customers to put their phone on vibrate/message mode while on the train.
Also, many upscale restaurants and bars have signs asking patrons to turn
off their phones.
In Osaka, there have been commercials featuring a pig who takes and throws
out the phone of young girl talking loudly on her phone. (sponsored by the
Ad Council, I think)
