    I just spoke with the CDMA RIM desk at Sprint. They advised that the RIM Servers are down nationwide for all carriers. She also advised that RIM has not been able to post any news of this to their sites. Sprint advised that it will be sometime tomorrow (10-19-2009) before the problem is corrected. just thought I would pass this on. I suspected a problem because none of my BBM would get past Sprint (check mark only with no D or R since noontime EDT)

    As of 8:30 pm Eastern, I'm having a BBM convo with my sister. I'm on VZW; she's on AT&T.

    BBM, BIS, and BES email working fine for me on AT&T. I saw earlier posts that this was a Sprint problem.

    Rogers has been working fine all day. I think you were speaking with someone just wanting to get you off their line.

    BIS went down for me about 7 PM CT yesterday and just got it back up about 15 minutes ago.

    I believe my girlfriend has sprint, and while she doesn't have a blackberry, maybe this explains why I've been receiving odd messages from her phone server.

    I'm on Verizon and while my BBM and email are working, neither of my BB phones are showing status of anyone on my contact list. I noticed it last night on a friend's 8330 as well. Wierd.

    This was not just a Sprint problem. I have Cellsouth and I couldn't use bbm or email anyone all day until about 4pm today. And it wasn't a carrier problem as a friend of mine who also uses CS was able to use all of her data. I guess it just hit only part of the bb owners as most of my bbm contacts had no problems except for trying to get in touch with me.

    So it sounds like Cellsouth & Sprint only. I haven't seen issues with other carriers. Fine the whole time on AT&T.

    Maybe it's location specific. It's been fine for me just east of NYC.

    Rec'd pushed email for 4 of my accounts throughout today and tonight, and two messages through BBM5. No complaints here.

    The Sprint rep was talking BS, not BIS.
