    For those affected by the outage, how are you surviving?

    I think it's very weird to wake up in the morning and not have my BB's red light flashing or have at least 3 BBM messages.

    My BlackBerry feels quiet.

    Funny thing is, I'm not sure how to communicate with my family other than BBM so I had to resort for Facebook Walls to tell them "I'm safe!" lol

    I thought it would be really bad not to have the service, but truth be told, it's a nice mini-break from all the madness that BBM has to offer.

    Even though I cannot wait for the services to get back, I think we should enjoy our times while our BlackBerries semi-offline before we go back to the crazy world of BBMing!

    I can't take the break. I get some 500 emails a day. Now if I don't respond to them immediately when I get home I have some 500 emails to respond to. I'm a little too tired now of doing this......

    I'm getting by alright. Believe it or not, I'd be more angry if it was just mine that didn't work, but knowing it's a wider problem and knowing (or at least hoping!) that it will get fixed is slightly more comforting.

    I don't use my BB much since the outage began. My mother is overjoyed with the fact that there's an outage on BIS as I'm on my BB all the time, I always have my phone with me but during the past 2 days I just throw it somewhere and just go back to type random texts to my contacts to check whether it's back up, when she saw me without it the first thing she said to me was "What happened to you Blackberry?". . One time, I went out with her and like always I was BBM'ing and she got so angry she threatened to throw my Blackberry in the sea.

    My BlackBerry still works over WiFi, just not getting email except through the Gmail app. Still working on WiFi though for the most part.

    I'm sitting in front of a computer anyways, so the only real thing I'm missing out on is BBM. It's an inconvenience since I use BBM quite frequently to contact some of the sales reps for our company, but it's really not that bad...

    I can't log in to the Email Set Up App (lost my accounts this morning when I deleted service books and tried to register with the network) and my apps won't work. It's so frustrating.

    I am as good as dead.
    3 days.
    No emails on BB.
    No Gtalk on BB.
    No YM! on BB.
    No MSN on BB.
    And worst..

    No ВВМ.

    Haven't lived without the above for even a day in my life from the last 2 years.

    Call me and addict. But I can't imagine how I will survive ahead.

    I was able to use Opra during the outage, I had not heard of Logicmail before now, so I am assuming that you recommend it?

    It was a long day without service but I'm glad everything is running smoothly. Inspired by everyone's stories. Also, FB has a page "I survived the BlackBerry outage". Funny.

    I was at two 3 hour meetings yesterday, I was still able to use my BB via SMS, though not as fast as BBM but messages were getting through. A spokesman that sat 2 seats from me pulled out his iPhone and started messing with it (I think it had iOS 5) when he wasn't speaking while I left mine in my pocket the whole 6 hours. Having no email is understandable, some people use BB's email domain for their business/work contact, I use mine just for BB App World and carrier contact, little things like that so I didn't miss it.

    OP, you DO realize SMS exists, right?

    **** yeah, I will never delete it off my phone again. Instant email but it did use the battery faster.

    not sure if this is the outage but my Email alerts still function (and the LED with them) but i am no longer getting notified about Facebook notifications and manually loading the mobile app shows no unread even if there actually are. i just use the mobile site in the browser for now, or my desktop computer. it seems to only affect Facebook, have not tried App World yet.

    However, last week i DID experience a week-long internet outage, both at home and even the cell tower (got the little '1xev' but in all lowercase, could phone out and in but not message or use data) were down at the same time. when my internet at home came back up (usually for only five minutes at a time) my cell would go all capital (1XEV) until it went down again. whatever it was, solar spots, etc, it killed my entire home internet AND my phone's data services all simultaneously

    When I had my BB and there was an outage, I actually spoke to people in person. It was an amazing feeling! You all should try it.

    I am pretty sure the outage didn't effect voice or smsing .....
