BlackBerry Messenger Down – What Problems Are You Experiencing?

bbm_outage

BlackBerry Messenger has been down for some time now. Apparently there are outages across North American carriers that affect BBM, Internet browsing and apps that use data. There have been several outages in recent months and this one is particularly bad. These outages don’t normally last long so it will surely be fixed by Christmas when many will unbox their new BlackBerry.

Let us know what you’re experiencing!

    I manage about 150 users worldwide on my BES5.0. We have been down in North America for almost three hours. Various networks include ATT and VZW. I see VZW down at 530pm PST and ATT about the same in most US regions. PCCW in Asia is still working. Vodaphone UK/NL looks like it went down about 2pm PST

    From what I see, only Asia is connecting.

    Basically, I can’t use any app that requires my data plan. I’m with Fido, and called them in, but the representative told me to call back within a few days. I can’t believe this. Does anyone know how long this will be a problem? Thx.

    Nothing data related is working for me on Rogers in toronto and hasn’t for a few hours.

    It sucks! But also proves I’m too reliant on my blackberry! But I use it a lot because I’m on the road for my job and use email, twitter, and messenger as primary forms of communication. Hopefully it comes back up tomorrow.

    This outage is really an inconvenience. I called up Verizon Wireless to verify the outage before it had been reported on the internet. I hope it’s restored by tomorrow. I’ve become too reliant on my BlackBerry apps. Heh.

    All that’s working on my Curve is the phone (calling in and out). No data in or out whatsoever.
    This is getting very OLD
