A cell tower is a structure that provides coverage for a particular area.
A cell tower also transmits signals for that area, which in turn gives a person or device in that area a signal.
Cell phone towers are generally located in residential areas, such as in schools, parks, and public buildings, and may be located anywhere.
Some of the biggest cell towers are located in the Midwest and South, which is where many of the cell phone towers were built.
A cell phone can be damaged or lost when a tower goes down or the tower is disconnected.
