31. A question...
Where were the planes relative to the ground when the calls were made? At what altitude?

If they were anywhere within a 100 miles of NYC it's likely the planes were at a low altitude and there were dozens of cell towers within just a few miles of the planes. As you approach NYC, the density of cells becomes unreal.

At 30,000+ feet I can see locking onto a cell could be a bit dicey but if the planes were under 10,000 feet when the calls were made then it doesn't seem like such a stretch to me.

Unless you have the location and altitude at the time the calls were made I just don't see you getting a satisfactory answer to this question.
