Is it natural for me not to be able to place phone calls through my cell phone right now? A friend called me right after midnight to wish me a happy New Year's, but I've been trying to get through to other friends and have, thus far, been unsuccessful. I don't hear a ringing sound when I'm trying to get through to them, and my texts won't go through. My uncle said something about so many people calling others right now, something with the company or satellites, or something...well, he's pretty drunk, so it's natural he wouldn't make much sense, but still. Is this normal?
