    oh and why is it that nothing works on my phone except Pandora??? why does Pandora work? wtf? :/ so confused.
    Once installed, Pandora only uses "Direct TCP" to talk to its servers and stream audio, either through the carrier or via Wi-Fi. This completely bypasses RIM infrastructure and therefore is unaffected by the RIM outage. RIM actually wanted it this way - you could imagine the extra load on their systems if every streaming audio and video app streamed through their servers!

    Since I just started a contract with T-Mobile, I can't do that. But I might go with their MyTouch if it's not bad. I just don't have the money to buy one right now. And I just got my Blackberry!

    Just curious... is anyone going to attempt to get some sort of refund on on this outage? I have verizon, which they force you to pay 30 bucks a month for bb service... and further confuses me to why i am paying my wireless carrier for the bb service and its not verizons fault?!?!?

    I turned off the carrier network and flipped on WiFi - I'm connected, but when I did an IP check, I'm connected locally, aka my IP shows up as my home internet IP, normally when BIS is running it even re-directs all WiFi traffic via BIS, so my IP still shows up as RIM. So WiFi works, for basic data, no BlackBerry services. WiFi icon isn't fully illuminated. No BBM, no PIN, no life!

    I know what you mean. I just got mine and I love everything about them. Except these problems. I just got it about a month ago and now all of this. Not a good first impression. I hope it gets better or I will jump off the Blackberry bandwagon.

    Hey one good thing (at least for me) about no service is that I graduated from a crackberry mewbie to a crackberry user. Way to go for me. HaHaHa!

    No, thankfully. But I'm not fond of paying all that extra money for BIS that keeps going out.

    And people always ask: "can you get a BB without a data plan?

    Well, this is what they want... ugh
    LOL!

    Luckily i don't depend on my BlackBerry for business. This is no good for those that do.

    i do use my BlackBerry in place of a PC so kinda lost contact there for a while at 1xev!

    Bolt is working now, good. SMS, phone, good. Having just phone and SMS is giving me flashbacks to 1999, Nokia 6160.

    No BlackBerry internet, BBM, Apps, Email etc on VZW 9630/4.7.1.61.

    Makes me wonder what kinda losses RIM will suffer because of this. It isn't the first time this has happened, and I doubt it'll be the last. haven't quite committed myself to sayin I'm ditchin my BB for a Pre or other smartphone.. yet. But twice in one weeks time is pushin it..
