    Default Blackberry outage 12/22/09

    I'm on T-mobile and just bought an 8520 about a week and a half ago. I'm aware of the BBM/BIS outage today. I can't access the internet browser, bbm or even the facebook or ubertwitter clients. I have however seen a few blackberry users updating their status from facebook for bb and they were on verizon. I thought this was across all carriers? If so who else is still having problems? I even did a battery pull and it didn't fix anything. While attempting to download the new BBM (5.0.0.57), the installation failed. I was on BBM 5.0.0.33.

    Well I'm on Tmo too and I can't get anything to work either! the ONLY thing that does work is tmo tzones which isn't great by any stretch of the imagination but its the only internet I've had for the LAST 3 HOURS! :-/ oh yeah I'm in Dallas, Tx. incase anyone was wondering. Also just wanted to say that my phone has been REALLY CRAPPY with no interent, bb messenger, email, etc. since the 9700 came out. Its like just all at once my phone has completely gone down hill and it seems like as of lately over the last month I haven't even been able to use it most of the time! WHICH REALLY HAS IRRITATED ME LATELY SEEING AS HOW I PAY TMO FOR THEIR SERVICE!!!! > I'm out of contract and I think I'm going to start looking elsewhere. Even when its rims fault that there's an outage going on and not tmo's my little brother that lives down the street who has verizon doesn't ever have problems that I've been having lately. I hate that verizon is so much more expensive though :-/ but I am tired of paying 34.99 a month for unlimited internet and messaging and NEVER getting to USE it. I think Tmo has dropped the ball BIG TIME.

    OK, well I am with Verizon and I am able to access the internet but my BBM will not send/receive messages. I am so irritated, because this is all I ever use to communicate with most of my friends. Does anyone know anything more about this outage or what is being done to fix the problem? This is so F*@!& irritating!!!

    Calls and text messages are working ok for me also. A friend of mine a 9700 tonight, and has been using it in a limited way due to the outage. I also read on another thread that people in Mexico are also experiencing it. Yikes!

    Same for me. Last night, despite being in an area that T-Mobiles data map shows to have the strongest 3G signal, I was getting 3G for maybe 2 minutes after a battery pull then it would drop to 'EDGE'. Now, all I'm getting is 'edge'. Incredibly annoying. I have no idea if this is due to T-Mobile or the BIS services.

    "Some BlackBerry customers in the Americas are experiencing delays in message delivery," said company spokeswoman Rachel Colley last night. "Technical teams are actively working to resolve the issue for those impacted. RIM apologizes for any inconvenience experienced by customers."
