• Users Reporting Server Connectivity Issues When Setting Up BBM For iOS

    We all know of how dismal the first initial launch was of cross-platform BBM. So far this re-launch has been pretty successful, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have it's own hiccups.

    Yesterday, when helping a friend of mine to setup BBM on his iPhone 5, I came across a "temporary server error" after registering his BlackBerry ID and attempting to sign in. After several more attempts over the next several hours, still no luck. And as of this morning, he is still not able to sign in.

    Usually when these things happen, it's not just a single occurrence. So, this morning I tweeted out to see if others had experienced the same thing. Apparently it's a common issue at the moment. Let's hope that this doesn't turn into another major connectivity issue and BlackBerry is able to iron out the kinks soon. BlackBerry needs this launch to be a success.
