This "Operation Chokehold" will do nothing also. It may just be a small connection issue here or there in big cities but most people and places will not even notice. Like I said before it takes a disaster to bring communications to it's knees in an area. Heavy use by several users will not have a great impact on them. Remember T-Mobile going down completely? People just brushed that off also and that lasted 5+ hours.
Att will probably just say whatever to this and move on with the everyday business. Because they will know if the system is bogged down it was because of an "attack" and not the normal use of the customers.

It's very confusing.
Like Winston Churchill said - 'Two nations separated by a common language'.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Whether an "idiot" like yourself knows it or not, you are part of the problem - on all sorts of levels. But, you are just to DUMB to know it!

By the way did "Operation Chokehold" do anything to anyone today? I work late nights so I didn't notice a thing because I was asleep and none of my friends or family mentioned any issues.

That was the same thing I had been saying. Several hundred people doing heavy use all aross the US will not do much. Several thousand people using the networks during a disaster will take it down just in that area. Even then it is not a full take down but just a rough time getting through but it will happen with retries. T-Mobile going down nationwide for 5+ hours caused mild headaches but the next day everyone didn't care and forgot.

Yup, The T-Mobile outage was awful but was quickly forgotten in a few days. But I knew this chokehold would do nothing..

Haha...Yea well, this didn't really accomplish anything other than to show how childish and silly the iPhone community is.
I made sure to turn on WiFi for 12/18 on my 3GS.
