    Since mid day I've not received any emails on my 9900, although they are coming in on my PC. Phoned Vodafone and they say its a major problem with BB at the moment affecting hundreds of thousands of BB users (her words) UK wide. Just for my reassurance (that its not just my phone!), are others having this problem today?

    yeah I've had the exact same problem, pc is getting emails but my 9900 has still to receive any of them. Hope they fix it soon, as I will be out of office!

    Millions of others are having the same problem.

    There's a massive BIS outage across Europe, Africa, Middle East and India at the moment... http://m.crackberry.com/blackberry-s...k-server-blame

    Sorry to hear that but also relieved too that its just not my new phone! According to Vodafone its a BB problem which the BB people are trying to sort - let's hope it happens soon!

    ...I hope so too, it messes up loads more stuff than just the mail, things like BeWeather and others that require BIS seem to be affected too (yeh, I know I can change the BeWeather transport setting but still...). Wish I'd known all this before I restored from back up and did all kinds of other fiddling about earlier!!

    I had a strange thing with my texts today too in that some, just some, and not necessarily today's, are together at the top of the list under Sun 5 Jul 2043! This seemed to happen after I had a "give texts a trusted status" (or similar wording) caption earier today - I assume this is linked to the other issues.

    Many friends from Switzerland, which I think is also part of Europe, haven't noticed any sort of problem

    LOL

    1) Switzerland is IN Europe, but is not part of the European Union. Anyway, some Swiss users are also reporting BIS outages so that's irrelevant now.

    2) Can you prove that BIS4.1 was ever rolled out in the UK? There were rumours that it was going to happen then, but I haven't seen any proof that it actually happened.

    I have it from someone who works for RIM... 4.1 was rolled out last month... There are no updates happening now, its just a server gone down.. Simples.. ;-)

    I am located in Oxford which is also in Europe and we have experienced no problems with Vodafone BIS today. Maybe we are just lucky.
