One I can think of almost immediately is the NYC power blackout of 2003.  Cell networks (those that were still operating on batteries or generators) rapidly overloaded to the point where no one got through.  In a disaster involving widespread power outages coupled with damaged power distribution networks (like a nuclear attack), cell systems would be essentially non-existent.
