Signals from smart phones are routed through base transceiver stations when they communicate, regardless of their proximity to their destinations. Signals from phones belonging to friends calling or texting in the same room must find distant base stations before they connect, just as signals from friends’ phones located in opposite corners of the city must find base stations.
