When the power goes out, the cellphone works for me.
Unfortunately, we are rarely able to get a cell signal here at home. I'm
not sure why as I can see the cell tower on the hill above us. Must be the
topography or something. We've tried different phones and guests can't get
reception with their phones either.
Thankfully, phone service is the least of my concerns during a power
outage. I don't call anyone anyway.
