Not a problem. Your cell phone is on your hip, buried in the seat with another body next to it. Great shielding. You are in a giant metal tube, which also has great shielding properties. It is most likely a small one, and incapable of great power output.
You would have to get it and bring it up closer to the window level to really get a signal out line of sight to a tower.
It would be instructive to see FCD alarm stats plotted by time and location...
