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!

    Just reloaded my beta OS thinking something must have went wrong with it.

    Can’t login to BIS
    BES won’t activate
    Internet is working
    No Blackberry registration coming through

    Seriously, this is too much. Twice in one week? I have a business to run and my Blackberry was a business tool. The best Blackberry could offer me is a few bucks off of my next bill? I have one word for Blackberry, “IPhone”, and I’m on my way to get one NOW.
    Good ridence to Blackberry.

    My BB e-mail stopped working at about 4:30 PM (PST) today. Web browsing is down as well. The phone seems to be working fine.

    This is not good, I rely on my bb for my business and I need this thing to work while I’m away this week.

    No data services whatsoever since around 11am or so (HST). This is really frustrating since we pay so much money for unlimited data usage and here, RIM isn’t supplying the opportunity to use said data services. Now, it’s 9:33pm HST and still no data services at all.

    Really, I’m ticked

    “These outages don’t normally last long so it will surely be fixed by Christmas”
    That’s a pretty cavalier attitude to take Kyle. You make it sound like it’s acceptable. This is the second MAJOR outage in a week, RIM owes its customers (and investors!) some bona fide explanation of what is going on and WHY.

    This is insane. Blackberry usage has surely increased massively in recent years and in 2009 alone. I wonder if they can carry us all?

    It must be you Melissa. Try pulling your battery out and wait a minute before putting it back in. If its not working after that, call your carrier (from a phone other than your BlackBerry).
