    Hi,
    After yesterday outage i wake up this morning with email and bbm back.

    I have msn live, google talk and internet browser working just fine.

    However, some apps can't connect. Including bbweather, google maps and bbtran.
    tried deleting the bbwather and bbtran and reinstalling with no luck.
    (i don't want to mess with google maps cause it has all these favorites i don't want to lose)
    They just keep giving me errors that they can't connect.

    Any suggestions ?


    I'm on 8900 curve 4.6.1.206 (platform 4.2.0.102) running on t-mobile.

    Everything is out again. It made the 6:00 news here. They said RIM had no explination about yesterday or today. I seemed to be OK anytime I got on the BB today. All is OK for me now. I dunno, must be spuratic.

    I'm guessing that your media didn't do their research? The outage, apparently, was tied to errors in BBM 5.0.0.55 and 5.0.0.56.

    I have kept BBM updated but have not used it on my BB so that makes some sense.

    Yes, several times actually.

    Does anybody know how to check the permissions ?

    I'm suspecting that these programs doesn't try to connect at all. They immediately give me the connection error after starting them.

    No, all the permissions are set to allow.

    Something very strange is happening here...

    I downloaded some more apps trying to figure out what is happening.

    Live search (microsoft maps), Yelp and twitter OpenBeak can connect

    Opera mini and google mobile app along with the old apps can't connect!!!

    What's happening here ?!
    It's driving me crazy

    problem solved

    T-Mobile - Has TCP/IP
    Go to Options->TCP (or Tools->TCP)
    APN: wap.voicestream.com
    Username: (blank)
    Password: (blank)
    The part in red was missing...

    Somehow it got deleted but now i put it back and everything just works fine
