imessage down again
When imessage goes down, it is:
"Nothing to see here. Move along."
When the Blackberry network goes down, it makes tech news headlines.

If no one noticed when the RIM servers go down, it would mean no one cares anymore and that would be a bad thing.
That being said, when BlackBerry services go down it's a lot more noticeable as all your phone's smart features (email, IM, Internet) are out of commission...it essentially becomes a "dumb" phone.

To get your internet connection to work you just have to navigate to the carrier's bookmark in the browser, that always disconnects the BIS connection.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure more than 50% of the emails sent daily around the world still travel through BlackBerry networks I believe. No one cares if iMessage goes down because people don't rely on it.

Went down at a very inconvenient time for me, got a replacement 4s yesterday and thought my AppleID had been messed up when iMessage wouldn't activate and kept telling me my password was incorrect. I guess the difference between an iMessage outage and a BBM outage is that i could still send/receive messages as it merely defaulted back to SMS whereas BBM doesn't do that.
