not only issues with BBM but internet seems to be out also. Looks like full outage. Wow 2 glitches in a weeks time. I am currently looking at the Nokia N900 very serious phone. Dunno guess as the network grows with more and more users RIM is trying to handle all the commercial users who have joined there business network.
I can confirm that BBM/BIS/Browsing on VZW are all down in Fairfield County CT about 40 mins NE of NYC. This is bullshit. I cant wait till my NET discount comes up to jump to Android. Im actually considering biting the bullet and buying one un-subsidized. RIM is just creating one fuck up after another (outages, a new bbm version 3 times in one week, the Bing lock in). Sorry for the language but I cant help when my friend next to me with MetroPCS paying $50 a month hasn't had a data outage in the 6 months he has been with them. I am paying VZW $86 a month on a deeply discounted plan for what? This headache?
BBM is down here in London, Ontario... no data at all!!
Remember when you are thinking about leaving the blackberry world that outages are something like 1.2 times as many. You are then completely network dependent as well its not exactly easy or cheap to get email the way you do now. I looked at the droids but my company email will not even work, at all, none what so ever on the droid so that shot that in the ass
if someone hates bb's that much, they probably shouldn't be on this forum....
It's funny how no one has mentioned how the new telus hspa network has had innumerable issues with the new devices...
Probably because we all realize it's not a bb problem, but a telus problem...
in any event.....
RIM has the best product out there for anyone who actually uses their phone for business...
If they aren't willing to stick through the bad times, to reap the benefits in the good times....then I say..go buy a droid or an iphone.......delete your bbos account and best of luck to you..
we are all here to try to figure out how to work through the issues, not just complain about them....
i am guessing that most of you guys own PC's....are you this verbal in the PC forums?? we all know there "are no issues with PC's" LMFAO
come on now...if you can't be a positive contributor, don't type in the first place...spend your time looking at other phones on the market, and troll those forums instead..this place is already completely overrun with threads regarding the droid and iphone. take your desires/complaints/wishes/thoughts/opinions elsewhere. As far as i am concerned they are not welcome here. I purchased a VIP LIFETIME membership with BBOS because i am a BB fan.
Please respect the forum and its' intentions....
just my $.02

no data at all in NY
I am in Paris, in France, and on my Bold 9700 I have make the update of BBM and the messages sending very slowly! , I am in 3G and even in wifi, that functions moreless although before, but curiously I had to create a group which can be recovered any more neither by recovery by e-mail nor locally on the bold and I have to even try under dekstop to manage and nothing! , I think an update asserts myself!,BIS is crazy!!!,any ideas??. :17:
These couple of recent issues with RIM's BIS service is troubling. Fortunately I'm not currently traveling, altho I just returned from two weeks away on business. I totally understand that s#*@ happens, but two major problems in the past few weeks is not good.
And, of course, as RIM tries to attract more of the consumer / non-BES market, this is most unhelpful to that effort.
Does the UPS App need data to just open? I get "Application Error [03:07] This is ever since the outage
Just saw this update on Twitter:
From Dataoutage.com: UPDATE: From our sources, RIM says the problem wll be fixed within a couple hours to a day max.
i posted this on another place but i think this was the actual place to put this, read carefully, many tests done here:
hi, I'm in Panama, i use Movistar (Telefonica Brand for Panama and some other countries) i have a BOLD 9000 with latest official OS (installed like a month ago or more), i have not had BIS for the past 2 months...however i use WIFI for Live Messenger, BBM (5.0.056), BBBrowser...and it all stopped working today as well. I just installed BBM .57 and still nothing works.
Also, i have a couple of friends with BES and same problem, nothing works.
I think this is not related only to BIS or BES but actually to the whole Blackberry system...
So i made a couple of tests with apps i know were working yesterday:
GoogleMaps not working
facebook not working
bloomberg mobile not working
Blackberry Browser not working (hotspot or internet browser)
I can not connect to the Email configuration wizard through my carrier WAP either
My Wireless connection, Internet service and IP address is fine and working, my notebook works fine on same connection, plus, the blackberry shows a valid IP from WLAN and i can use Appworld, downloaded BBM .57 and installed...also, viigo works fine.
Hope they fix what they did soon and at least emit some information stating they are having issues but well....I also Hope Google buys them so who knows
It must be down!!!! None of my im's are getting thru
