Another BIS outage

12 Comments

RIMRobb‘s reporting on another BlackBerry Internet Service outage, and aptly noting that we’ve had one just about every month for the last while. Everything’s all stabilized now, but users worldwide had been out of service from about 6 – 11 PM last night. I would hazard a guess that the hefty snowfall in our neighbourhood had a little something to do with the blackout, but who knows what’s going on behind RIM’s closed server room doors? Regardless of the reasons, BIS subscribers are quickly losing patience with the repeated service interruptions.

    I think this was only T-Mobile They are having massive issues due to not being prepared for losing their main site….

    I noticed my Pearl doing some massive data transfer last night. I checked and service seemed to work fine, but my send/receive arrows were going apenuts. It stopped doing so after removing the battery and hard-resetting, so I doubt it’s related to any outage. However, I have to wonder if an outage instigated this behavior (failing login attempts?)

    So this would be why my berry received 88 messages all at once, twice today from my Gmail account?

    Blackberry keeps filling my inbox with my ENTIRE inbox every 3 minutes. Called t-mobile but due to a flood everything is down. Anyone else having weird mail problems?

    I use Verizon and received email all night with no interuptions last night. And what outages are being spoke of here. I know here when RIM had an outage back in May it hit the news because it was the first time they had reported an outage
