** The writers still messed up when describing an alien planet as being "several billion miles" away from Earth. The closest star to Earth (other than the Sun, obviously) is Alpha Centauri, which is several dozen ''trillion'' miles away. The planet they're describing is far more likely to be hundreds of trillions or even quadrillions of miles distant.
*** It should be noted that the quote comes from Teal'c, who seems to be wildly inaccurate about scale, likely due to Goa'uld propaganda. The same guy who thought a Hatak could travel "ten times the speed of light".

** Justified. It's very likely that the complex has cell repeaters to enable phones (and other radio equipment) to work in there. In fact, the real Cheyenne Mountain Complex (the SGC is on a fictional sublevel 28 but the complex itself is 100% real) has over 700 repeaters in it to enable cell phones to work.

In-universe, the SGC is located on a fictional sublevel 28 of that complex, but the complex itself is real and cell phones do work there.

** Probably justified. It's very likely that the complex has a cell repeater to enable phones (and other radio equipment) to work in there. Most large complexes like this would have such a setup in real life.

** In "A Matter of Time", when a black hole forms from a pre-existing star, its gravity suddenly and inexplicably increases. An actual black hole's formation occurs when a star's mass collapses into a singularity, but its gravity doesn't suddenly increase as depicted in the episode: it has the same mass and gravity, just in a much smaller volume.
*** It's indicated that the planet is falling towards the black hole at the time, which would at least partly explain the increasing effects. Carter actaully [[LampshadeHanging acknowledges]] that she has no idea what's going on with it.
