Infrared reflective windshield/Cell Phone Reception

I have a 2019 E450 Wagon on the way with the subject windshield option and have a couple of questions:
1. Will it impact cell phone reception?
2. The manual appears to indicate that the built-in wireless charger also connect the cell phone to an "external" antenna. Does that overcome any problems with the windshield signal blockage?

Thanks for any inputs.

I have not had any issues with reception. IMO enough signal come in via the sun roof when the phone remains in my pocket. I rarely store the phone in the console.

Thanks. Does an external antenna connect to the cell phone while charging?

According to MB literature it connects to the vehicle antenna when connected. Charging has nothing to do with it.
That said I don't know if that feature is restricted to certain markets as some other phone features are.

Thanks. Does that mean that the cell phone uses an external vehicle antenna for calls via Bluetooth?
