not from a reliable source but I saw somewhere that cell phone service in Boston has been shut down to prevent more detonations

this is just mindless, there is literally no reason why random groups of people need to be targeted like this

WBZ just confirmed that

Cell service NOT shut down, just overloaded

From
Live blog: Explosions in Copley Square
The heavy volume of mobile phone calls around downtown Boston following explosions at the Boston Marathon has clogged cell service, blocking many from getting through to people at the scene.

“We are experiencing call blocking due to what’s happening,” said Mark Elliott, a Sprint spokesman. “The network is blocking calls due because of the number of calls coming in exceeds the capacity.”

He didn’t know what the exact volume of calls has been since the explosions occurred, but said many thousands of calls made at the same time in the same are overwhelm cell towers in the area.

“There’s no way the network can handle that kind of traffic,” he said.

There have been numerous reports of many people not able to get through to their family and friends at the marathon.

Elliott said that mobile phone users should text the people they are trying to reach in the area instead of calling to free up the mobile networks for emergency uses.

Verizon Wireless, meanwhile, issued a statement, saying: “Verizon Wireless has been enhancing network voice capacity to enable additional calling in the Copley Square area of Boston. Customers are advised to use text or email to free up voice capacity for public safety officials at the scene. There was no damage to the Verizon Wireless network, which is seeing elevated calling and data usage throughout the region since the explosions occurred.“

they are probably getting that info from the false report sent out by the NY Post. So far only two deaths have been reported.

NY Post is the most unreliable news source. Even worse than FOX News
