T-Mobile Spokesperson Responds to WiFi BlackBerry Data Outage

Comments

T-Mobile have issued an explanation for the BlackBerry data outage that affected users on Monday and Tuesday, saying it related only to WiFi and not T-Mobile’s network. 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.

In an email to PC World, a T-Mobile spokesperson said the outage affected all North American carriers, and that RIM’s technical support team managed to troubleshoot the problem.

T-Mobile have discontinued the BlackBerry Curve 8900. According to the carrier, the device has “reached the end of its life-cycle.” With pics of the 8910 surfacing, we could see this device head for T-Mobile and replace the 8900. Personally, I really like the 8900 and if it were up to me, I’d keep the device around and offer it for free.

T-Mobile has made a very admirable move by announcing they are waiving international long distance fees for all calls to and from Haiti. “Our company and our employees care deeply for our customers, and we know that many customers have been directly impacted by the disaster in Haiti,” said Robert Dotson, president and CEO, T-Mobile USA. “While our thoughts go out to those in Haiti who are suffering so greatly at this time, our promise is to help people connect with those who matter most. I can think of no better time to demonstrate this commitment.”

Are you experiencing a BIS outage?

45 Comments

There are reports all around that the BIS is down across North America. Personally, I never notice these things when they happen because I’m on a BES, but I feel for everyone affected. The outages are reported with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. Again, there are so many reasons why the BIS might be down that it’s impossible to speculate, but if multiple carriers are affected, it’s probably a node somewhere in RIM’s network.

Are you experiencing an outage? Where are you and who is your network provider?

Comments

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 is on sale from the official T-Mobile site, but you can get a bit of a better deal from Walmart. The official price for the 9700 is $199.99 on the new Even More plan, or at $449.99 on the Even More Plus plan. From Walmart, the device is as low as $129.99.

The device is clearly a hot item as there is a back order already.
