  • Cell Phones and SHTF Scenarios

    The question you've all been dying to know the answer to: Samsung or Apple phone in the case of an EMP attack?

    https://pjmedia.com/homeland-security/2017/09/06/galaxy-8-or-iphone-8-which-is-better-prepared-for-a-north-korean-emp-attack/

    But is it even worth trying to save your smartphone? In the end, probably not. North Korea and EMPs are not really targeting cell phones. The broader targets are our electric grid and cell towers — in other words, our complete electronic infrastructure. The goal is not really to cause you some personal inconvenience with your beloved smartphone. If an EMP attack were to happen there would be no working cell service, no Wi-Fi, and, in fact, the entire Internet backbone would likely be down. Not to mention the fact that there wouldn't be any electricity to even power a phone. The goal is literally to destroy the U.S. economy, transportation, water supply, etc., and to put the U.S. back into the Dark Ages.



    TL;DR: It really won't matter one way or the other.

    Yeah, useless discussion. Batteries last half a day, no power means no charge, or at least not for long. Poor use of scarce resources.
    Hi! My name's Terrie, and I used to be a smoker.

    I like it small...

      Learn semaphore (for line of sight) and smoke signals (for over-the-horizon communication).

      I have to bend over too far

        On the flip side, if you're ever worried that a predator drone strike will be called in based on your cell phone location, I believe one of these bags will solve the problem without having to ditch your phone.

        If they don't work and you get taken out by a hellfire missile, I can't be held liable for this advice.
