As I recall, so many people across the country (and especially in NYC) were trying to make cell phone calls on 9/11 that the system was nearly
overloaded. Authorities even requested that people avoid using their cell phones just to free up space for those involved in the rescue and recovery.
So it stands to reason that some, or most, of those in the towers who tried using their cell phones may have been unable to do so. There's also the
possibility that electrical wires and phone lines were severed due to the plane's impact, and prevented some folks from being able to make calls on
land lines. That's just a possibility that I'm considering, so for all I know it probably didn't happen that way.
You also have to consider all of the smoke and heat that was rising above the impact point to where these survivors were. Unless I had exhausted all
efforts searching for an exit, then I doubt I would have tried making any phone calls. I'd only try making phone calls if I needed to be rescued or
if I thought death was absolutely imminent and I wanted to speak to my family and loved ones.
Regardless, the phone calls that may have gone through generally wouldn't have even been recorded unless they were messages left on someone's
voicemail or if they were made to a person working for a company that records all of its phone calls as a general business practice. Even if calls
were recorded, they're private. It's none of my business, or your's, or anyone else's to listen to unless the family chooses to make it public.
I doubt that I'd want a deceased relative's last phone call, that includes them pleading for their lives, to be all over the internet.
Sorry, but I doubt the smoking gun you're looking for even exists. The chances that someone heard or saw explosions unrelated to the plane crashes,
and made a phone call discussing it that happened to be recorded even exists. And if it did exist then the government probably would have gotten a
hold of it or pressured the family to keep it quiet long ago anyways.
Just my humble opinion. But you brought up some good ideas. Something like this could very well be solved by thinking outside the box.
