    BIS 3.0 Upgrade Scheduled for North America: RIM Maintenance


    Get ready! BlackBerry Internet Service v2.8 upgrade to BlackBerry Internet Service v3.0 is around the corner. Bla1ze got the maintenance notifications sent to him informing us when the upgrades will be taking place.
    Dates and estimated downtimes are in.

    • There will be scheduled network maintenance by Research In Motion (RIM) affecting BIS customers between 0100 CT / 0200 EDT on March 28th and 0500 CT / 0600 EDT on March 28th.
    • Blackberry will be performing a BlackBerry Internet Service v2.8 upgrade to BlackBerry Internet Service v3.0
    • BlackBerry Internet Service subscribers may be unable to send or receive messages using their BlackBerry hosted email account or integrated third-party email accounts, view email attachments, activate email service, or request to see ""more"" text during the maintenance.
    • Wireless service providers and device resellers may be unable to create subscriber accounts or provision services for subscribers.
    • The estimated duration of impact is 4 hours and affects 100% of BIS customers.

    Overview
    The BlackBerry Internet Service is designed to provide subscribers with access to email messaging, instant messaging, Internet browsing, and more. BlackBerry Internet Service subscribers can receive automatic delivery of email messages for up to ten email accounts on their BlackBerry smartphones.

    BlackBerry Internet Service 3.0 is the latest version of the BlackBerry Internet Service offered by Research In Motion.

    Coming soon: Enhancements to Google Mail integrations

    Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (xHTML) Support for non Thick Clients
    BlackBerry Internet Service 3.0 is designed to support xHTML for non Thick Clients, providing BlackBerry smartphone users with a richer user experience, allowing for buttons, additional fonts, and colour controls when subscribers access and toggle their user settings.

    Device Switch Revalidation
    Changes to optimize the email setup and deactivation experience when the subscriber switches BlackBerry smartphones or Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards.

    Hosted Email Address Passwords
    Allows BlackBerry smartphone users to re-claim the BlackBerry email address if their BlackBerry Internet Service account is ever deleted.

    We were taken off line here in Trinidad for 18 hours last Monday.
    No word was sent out before but when I rang they said it was an "UPGRADE" to the service.

    i wonder if it was assocciated with BIS 3?

    Would be nice to know.

    Is there any way to check with the carriers website?

    It was Madasafish,

    This was the headline....
    EMEA BIS 3.0 Upgrade Scheduled for March 14th
    The folks in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, & Africa) are getting their BIS 3.0 upgrade this weekend. This is the upgrade that will be bringing 2 way Gmail sync along with quite a few other features we have mentioned before. The normal upgrade cycle is EMEA first and North America the weekend after (sometimes 2 weeks) and that seems to be following with the current rumors.
    So that was what happened with you.

    Soo I was really hyped up thinking BIS 3.0 would be any different here are the changes I have noticed:

    Gmail still sucks.
    The internet is as quick as it has been since the 5.0.0.4xx and up.

    Seems like there is little to no difference. Lame.:261:

    I agree with you 1000%. It was way over hyped and when it finally came it was like nothing even happened
