This is contradictory to what many users reported, but all inquiries on the subject were deflected from T-Mobile to RIM, who have not commented on the outage.

Rogers and RIM Planned BlackBerry Outage on January 17th at 2AM



Dataoutages.com are reporting that Rogers and RIM have a planned outage on January 17th between 2AM and 6AM EDT.

I don’t think users will mind this outage so much as it’s planned, but at the same time it’s frustrating for them to be planning outages so soon after their consecutive unplanned outages. At least most of us will sleep through it.
