Major Blackberry Outage
Yesterday we started to have data issues with their Blackberry that caused us unable to send email, PIN message, or surf the internet which is still continuing this morning. We thought it was an issue of our own BES because we were all on the same server. It actually is much more than that, seems like the outage is due to an internal issue at RIM with their SRP server that affected most of the Blackberry subscribers. I first noticed the problem at 8 PM EST when I tried to get on to http://wap.nba.com to get the latest NBA scores. So I sent an email to myself at 8:35 PM and it is currently 8:35 AM and the email still hasn’t been sent. Various other Blackberry users from around the net are reporting that their service is now backed up after a few hours of downtime but still no luck for myself.
Hopefully RIM gets this resolved because 12 hours of downtime and continuing is a huge amount.
Update: Service has been fully restored at 9:19 AM EST.
