    Blackberry data is more compressed then the iPhone. Basically this fake steve guy wants all at&t users to do this so his blog can get bigger once people ask about it and people are passing the story. Does anyone think this DDoS attack can lead to people with no service/ degraded service and in emergency's where people need 911, they cannot access it because of a stupid attack to prove something to at&t they already know.

    This is the same thing all these people complain about with gas prices. "ooh, let's all not buy gas for a day, that'll sock it to 'em"

    Yeah, like anyone cares, because tomorrow you'll still need gas. This is the same. It's a worthless point. You want to improve service? Turn your iPhone off when you're not using it. It already does you a favor by not being able to multitask, but do the whole network a favor by shutting it off and quit idly wasting bandwidth.

    That's lame. Talk about making a big problem even worse. People complain that AT&T is screwing all of its customers to target a select few, and they turn around and do the same thing. They're effectively impacting the network for everybody. Way to go hypocracy!

    If people really want to stick it to AT&T, then they can change providers. Planning a DDoS attack is probably the dumbest idea I've ever heard. It also hurts everyone else, if it actually works. I hope it failed, and didn't impact any emergency calls...
