    "A number of Apple services were temporarily offline for some users this morning, including iMessage and a number of iCloud features.

    Apple's support page reported an "Issue" with five of its approximately three dozen services around 12:30 a.m. Eastern.

    Some users were locked out of iCloud Documents, Photo Stream, iPhoto Journals, or Backup & Restore; the iMessage application also experienced problems sending or downloading attachments.

    Less than 1 percent of users were affected by the outage, though, as AppleInsider pointed out, that number could actually be in the millions, since iCloud now has more than 300 million members.

    By noon Eastern, Apple's support page was reporting normal service for all of its products. Cupertino also had to contend with an hour-long iTunes issue that prevented users from making purchases. Additionally, a late-Wednesday glitch meant some people could not create a new Apple ID.

    Apple iOS 7: The Most Exciting Features VIEW ALL PHOTOS IN GALLERY A similar outage hit iCloud users in February, when all services — including mail, contacts, calendar, photo stream, and backup — were rendered unavailable for about 11 percent of users, or 25 million people.

    Trouble struck again in June, knocking one-fifth of the service's users offline for more than an hour.

    Those frustrated with consistent iCloud outages may take reprieve in the new version expected next month as part of the iOS 7 update. For more, see PCMag's Hands On With iCloud 2013 Beta, as well as the Apple iOS 7: The Most Exciting Features slideshow above.

    When iMessage goes down the message goes as a regular text. Additionally, any iCloud documents that I've got I've also got backed up.

    I didn not return my BlackBerry when there was the four day outage in 2011, I stopped using my 9900 after it bricked on me on the train on the way home.

    I am not returning the iPhone based on the outages listed in the article.
