Because there's not enough cell capacity.
Hence why landline phones are still more reliable (assuming the infrastructure hasn't been destroyed).

Texting often still works, since it uses a diagnostic channel (hence the character limit), plus it keeps trying until it sends.

Basically, no one wants to pay for enough capacity to handle 100% of people talking. So they figure 5% (or whatever number they use).
