It's the Zombie Invasion - what would still work?

I have a question regarding a story I'm writing. There's a zombie outbreak - on a scale of 1-10 in terms of severity, I'd say it's an 8 - and I have four people trying to get around on unfamiliar territory. They're basically tourists in the US (round LA) so they don't really know anything much.

✗   How likely is it that anything satellite-related would still work, most importantly cell phones and GPS?
✗   Could you still access the Internet, either via computers or by phone?

I tried different search terms, like end of times satellite availability, internet availability etc - nothing useful.
The main problem is that if you google anything with zombie or invasion in it - you get a either links to fun trivia, video games or survival guides (some of which just assume that modern communication would be working flawlessly in such a case).

WOW, so many great responses. Thank you all so much for your input, comments and links!
