Any clue, Mobile Phone calls as the Cell phone, because it drives on the cellular network. It determines every tower system will consider as a Cell.
Tower to Tower movement is nothing but cell to cell movement. This why we name it as Cell Phone. When we meet any natural disasters or any human-made disasters, there will be an immediate effect on communications. And the cellular network will no longer be available because of damage to towers.
