Experiencing BIS Problems in Canada and North America?



There are reports that BIS users across Canada and the US are experiencing problems across all carriers with email, web browsing, Facebook, Twitter etc. So far there are no reports from the Michigan area, but Ohio and parts of Canada are reporting problems. RIM is attempting to fix the problem.

Are you having issues? Let us know where, what and on which carrier.

    Oshawa here (just east of Toronto) on Virgin Mobile. Been experiencing a couple of problems…starting yesterday, I havent been able to get any of my push content like CBC news alerts….and I havent been able to surf…….but what's odd is that I couldn't surf using the Blackberry Browser….if I used Opera or Bolt…..i could surf to my hearts content…today…i can use bb browser….but all my push content icons are wonkey (got a push symbol rather than the actual icon)…..started yesterday at about 8am…so…over 26hrs now……fun….what's next?….lol

    Haven't been able to surf the internet for a few days. BBM was working up until this morning when I made a small change to my plan. Now I still can't surf the net but also email and BBM don't work. Talked to Rogers they say it is the network that is congested and to do a battery pull every couple of hours until it gets back on. Don't know if this is the best idea.

    There were issues across different countries as well. Apparently Blackberry had some connectivity issues with different carriers. For example, here in Panama we are connected to BB through Jamaica, and Jamaica was having connectivity issues with BB.
