News story a few days back that in parts of Afghanistan wireless which has 99% vs 1% wired phones would go out every nite, on orders of the Taleban, to prevent civilians from reporting activity to Coalition forces. Think the wireless networks would last a little longer than a few hours without timing info but you never know , does your cell phone still work?
