    According to Verizon...There is no official word from RIM but it does seem to be down. At first they were blaming Gmail but when I told them my desktop Gmail and my buddy's Iphone were working they stuck me on hold and came back with the answer above.
    Yeah my gmail was the first to give me the problem

    I have nothing against Blackberry, i love my Bold. But were paying a premium for a premium business push email service and I for one want my moneys worth, not to be down constantly. A great phone is nothing more than a brick without working service after all.
    I agree with you. It seems like every other week or two BIS is down.

    Interesting......I've been intermittently receiving email throughout the day. I didnt realize there was an outage until I opened the forums and then got a twitter tweet.

    Maybe I committed a cardinal sin and didn't pay enough attention to my BB......... I'm so ashamed........

    it has been my phone and people on crackberry dont lie no mater what anyone tries to refute. I got my Bold 7 or 8 weeks ago and its been at least every 2 weeks if not every week since. Im impressed with my Bold, just not the level of service RIM has been offering lately. Hoping it gets better or else Ill have to find a more reliable solution for my mobile needs and email thats not down weekly

    I just got back up. I was down since 11am est. I just received some of my emails that I saw on my laptop this afternoon.

    This is truly unacceptable but what can we do?

    I agree with you. I love my bold, but dislike the data going out so often. Has anyone called AT&T to get a refund for this? I'm just wondering.

    well personally a $5 credit wont solve anything. Missing email is missing it, its done with now. i just want service that works and disappointed older 3rd party free solutions have better uptime. I got BB because it was supposed to be the king of the hill reliable email solution.

    And ive kept up with mobile news for a few years now, and this isnt anything new. There were major RIM outages in 2007 and 2008, and RIM VOWED it wouldnt happen again- and now twice in about 8 weeks. I dont know what theyre spending their record profits on, but obviously not improving their servers or putting backups in place for these types of situations.

    I'm in the same boat here. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    Yea! Just got my first email. Sent a test email to a different account and it still hasn't been received yet but it shows as sent on the BB. But at least I'm half way home.
