Cell phone reception at 2000+ feet

Coming into SFO today, my iPhone alerted me to a new voicemail (I'd been listening to music during the flight and had the phone in my pocket when I felt it vibrate). What was odd was we were at least a couple of thousand feet high and well over the bay when this happened! In disbelief, I looked at my iPhone. Not only did I have a new voicemail but the 3G signal was very strong too, so obviously plenty of power coming from the AT&T towers. Figures... I get lousy reception at best in Sebastopol but try calling me when I'm in a jet some 2000+ feet over San Francisco Bay, no problem. 😐
