Why? It might just not work!

A powerful stream of energized gas and particles from the sun will reach Earth at around 3PM Eastern time, potentially affecting satellites, cell phones, pagers and electrical grids.

    was i supposed to turn my cell of because it would get fried by the sun’s magnetic storm or because it might not work during the disturbance?

    Second option, the disturbance could have, and it did in some areas seemingly, hinder the functioning of the cell towers. But not fry your phone.
