    Default Vodafone UK Blackberry Issues = Rim +OG

    Into work to find no emails on anyones bb including mine, bes server not responding, restarted and still only working for people on wifi, call vodafone to discover 'we are currently aware of blackberry issues' recorded message.

    Another friend in another company had exactly the same issue BES crash and no service via vodafone after reboot, both companies looking forward to getting rid of their blackberry and moving to other platforms.

    Another Own Goal - Rim needs to sort their carrier reliability out we've had too many bb outages in the last year!

    They're blaming the wrong people. It seems to be a Vodafone fault.

    Why the heck does it matter where a company is from? Firstly it's irrelevant and secondly companies are majority owned by international companies, so Vodafone is hardly a British company anyway...

    Default Vodafone UK Blackberry Issues = Rim +OG

    From a customer point of view its seen as an issues with blackberry as other customers were fine.

    Ill ignore the UK company dig, 1 as I'm from the UK and 2 because I like my blackberry but recall last years major outage was a RIM issue (not a UK Company!)

    I hope they sort it all out as businesses want ensured service and I much prefer my BB to the Apple / Android offerings

    Regards

    Looks like Microsoft is having it's own issues but like the outages with other platforms they don't seem to get the same bad press as RIM.

    Were BB users on 3/T-Mobile/Orange having issues? No? Then it's Vodafone's problem.

    At lunchtime in the UK BES users were notified by Vodafone of a 'service interruption' affecting Blackberry users. No resolution timeframe was quoted. However, judging by the muted level of complaints it does not seem to have been a major issue. As far as I can tell BIS users were not affected.

    Fair enough

    What really winds me up most about this is how all the news and tech sites used it as a wonderful opportunity to pile in on BB again, some of them not even bothering to post a retraction when it turned out to be Vodafone's fault. If you're going to publish an article every time RIM has an outage, publish one every time Apple, Google or Microsoft have problems too.

    Oh ok - :-)

    Like I said I like my blackberry so was also disappointed, not in the attitude at work though as when you're there and have 100+ users unable to access their email and the users on other platforms able to work (and its happened several times in the last year) then something has to give.

    As a home BIS user who has previously been effected by other network outages I just hope its not a sign the carriers aren't renewing ageing equipment, I'm sure for those of us left they'll replace / upgrade for bb10 but its unfortunate for rim that they'll have lost customers over these issues, the fix times are also poor for a business service in my opinion.

    Still I do laugh whenever we have a new year, change to / from bst and the innevitable news that apple's alarm / calendar notifications have failed again and people are late for work! Got caught out by that in the past but fortunately my £5.00 alarm clock had no such problem :-)
