    Default BIS outage? 1/8/10

    What is going on with BIS in Tennessee with Verizon. Is it just me and my wife or is anyone else having issues this morning?

    I'm on Rogers but in Vegas for CES. Only getting '3G' with no BB symbol for the last hour or so. Here we go again?

    Gonna do a battery pull now. Maybe they did something at the Blackberry booth. I'll go check it out.

    I'm in Kansas City on T-Mobile. I had been getting messages & then I tried to search something on UberTwitter & it couldn't connect. Then I tried to do some other stuff, & it was the same. Then I noticed my network connection had switched to GSM. I don't have the BB data icon. It's 7:45pm now, & this just happened w/in the last 20 minutes or so.

    Started seeing strange activity around midnight NYC time:
    - Emails were coming in sporadically. Unlike prior outages, I would get messages at random times and on a delay, but all the messages I got between them would not come though. In prior outages, the messages were clearly just getting backed up as I would get several messages at a time and wouldn't be missing any in between.
    - Sending email works
    - Internet access works

    Very strange. Already registered the HRT and resent service books multiple times.

    Same with me, I just posted another thread about this in the rogers section of the forums. I was wondering if this was just a rogers problem but I guess its a blackberry problem seeing how its affecting more then just people on rogers in Canada.

    this question has probably been asked before - so if it has - my apologies;- given the recent lengthy outage for BB in the US - can subscribers expect a refund for the outage time?

    Or is it a T&C's thing where RIM don't guarantee service 100% so just gotta lump it?

    And of course it is in the ToS. What company have you heard of guarantee 100% uptime.

    Yeah I'm getting pretty feed up to.
    I love my blackberry and all but recently with all the outages not on the cell providers side but the blackberry sides is getting very discouraging. I'm glad I don't need my blackberry soley just for business, if not I would be angry as can be. Why? because I would be losing money by not having service. Especially from a company who's main backing is to support business and help increase business productivity. How can you achieve that with out reliability.

    Hopefully this problem will not become a common recurrence.
