Take for example 9 11 when the Towers fell the Land Lines in the area stopped working and all telecommunications where handled by the Cell network for the Public at least.
When you insist on relying on any 1 technology it's going to fail and leave you in a position that is at best extremely uncomfortable.
Why not make it mandatory to have this available it's called a Fail Safe or Fall back Position. Also exactly how are you paying for it this is supposed to work with a Pay as you Go and no credit so you can make Emergency Phone calls with nothing more than an old Cell Phone with some sort of charge and a valid SIM Card, Even the last bit is highly debatable too. You just need something recognized by the network.
Freedom is actually the ability to do as you like and still have your A$$ Covered by the Organization that is in place to protect you.
If your argument held any water you should be able to chose not to pay taxes to support a Large Unwieldy Military who you do not want to be there to protect you. Doesn't matter that everyone else would want to do the same thing and save their money to waste on themselves till the incident that attacked them came and they then demanded that they be protected from that Incoming ICBM.
Sorry but you can not have it both ways you either settle for the Regulations set out by the Authority in a Country who is there for the benefit of the citizens of you move to a different country where there are no protections. If you insist on not paying for a Military may I suggest the West Bank? You'll just need to learn to dodge incoming missiles. Currently not may have learned how to do this though.
