Cell Phone Snafus: Why You Lost That Call

By D Magazine |

IT’S AN ALL-TOO-FAMILIAR FRUSTRATION: SUDDENLY YOU HEAR that ominous static, followed by a crackle, and then a click. Another cellular phone call lost. Here arc the major trouble spots that plague Southwestern Bell or MetroCel customers, or both. (For token credit, call your cellular carrier.)

Trouble Spots:

Skillman/Audelia: police substation crowding the airwaves

Tollway: too many people using their phones

Downtown Dallas: crowded airwaves, tall buildings

LBJ/Tollway: concrete overpasses

Marsh and Northwest Highway: interference from Love Field

Area bordered by Royal, Midway, Forest, and Inwood: power lines

Stemmons and Northwest Highway: power lines

Central Expressway from Lovers to Haskell: underpasses

Stemmons just north of Regal Row: power lines, Love Field
