Prime Time Investigation Into Cellphone Coverage

This Prime Time investigation with Sam Donaldson looks at cellphone coverage issues. Many cellphone companies in the 1990s used scare tactics to get consumers to purchase their phones. They would advertise peace of mind and safety as you would be able to call 911 from anywhere on their coverage map.

Unfortunately, these coverage maps were not always accurate. This can lead to serious injuries for those individuals who rely on their cellphone coverage if they are attacked or in an accident.

Attorney Mark Hiepler represented Marcia Spielholz, who was pursued by carjackers while driving home from Christmas shopping. When she tried to dial 911 for help, the phone did not work. Eventually she was forced to stop driving and the carjackers shot her twice.
