  • Maybe...I think volcanic ash would disrupt breathing.

  • Azlotto beat me to it. I think the ash would be more of a problem for our breathing and speaking ability than interference of cell reception, but that could be a problem as well. "Large quantities of electrically charged ash can be generated in an eruption column. This charged ash can cause interference to radio waves and render radio and telephone systems inoperative. However, this has been very rarely observed. There are many examples of radio and telephone communications continuing to function around an erupting volcano and in areas receiving ashfalls." But ashfalls can also cause overheating of critical systems as well, so you never know.
