There's still simply no reason to do this on a holiday week. And I would rather have those problems on a day which isn't a holiday, than on a day which is. I don't think that "You would have that problem with that many BBS no matter what day of the week or holiday week it was" really means anything. I could say, conversely, if your website is going to hacked/DDoSs you would be just as happy if it happened any day of the week, or on your wedding day, as it creates the same amount of work either way.
You can argue about how hard it is or isn't, the relative safety or lack thereof.
But look at the change list. What was so important that Verizon could not wait a week?
To think that Verizon could test and foresee any possible problems, or lack thereof, when rolling out an update to hundreds of thousands of phones is ludicrous.
It's just a bad idea, and poorly conceived on Verizon's part.
