Lots of family members reporting no cell service, and twitter blowing up with reports as well.

Why do you say it's a DDoS attack as opposed to a misconfiguration or other system failures?

Multiple systems are down.

I believe only tmobile is down. Other carriers claim to be running ok and blaming any problems on callers trying to get reach people in tmobile

Teams continue to work as quickly as possible to fix the voice & messaging problems some are seeing.
Data services are now available & some calls are completing.  Alternate services like WhatsApp, Signal, iMessage, Facetime etc. are available. Thanks for your patience.

Exactly. More accurate than "multiple systems down".

What is it about this forum that everyone always has to be right?? 

(I am probably included in that, as well,  :-\ , although there is a difference between wanting to be accurate without referencing the other person's inadequacies vs. having to prove that the other person is wrong.)

I don't think it's unique to this forum. I will also mention that when someone says something in a tone of "voice" that comes across as "I know everything and I'm always right", it gets much more enticing to prove them wrong.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
