You should put all that book stuff in spoiler tags. Many of the people reading this thread do not want to know those things.

How could the cell phones work when the dome severed all the incoming power lines?

I'm not sure what you are asking.

I don't think we've seen any cell phones being used as actual phones, have we? Just as media capturing devices and music players, both of which would still function so long as the phone had battery life remaining.

They specifically mentioned that they were using the cell phones for music, etc. and not for making calls.

The use of Windows phone and HP Windows tablet devices can't be blocked by a silly dome.

I think tivogurl was responding to the "in the book" information posted by philhu, not about anything that happened in the tv show.

There's so many things that are unrealistic...but this wasn't one of them.
Spreading quickly and spreading like the wall was coated with gasoline are very different things. As this is a tv show, I guarantee that the walls were coated with something flammable so that the fire spreading would be more dramatic than if they had left it to burn naturally.
