    This is like the worse time for this ****. I am away for Christmas vacation and if I hadn't happen to bring my other phone "happens to be an iphone" I wouldn't be able to get any of my important emails. Posting this threw Opera browser on the Bold at least that's working

    Now I feel somewhat bad for yelling at the technical support woman at AT&T, although she was kinda rude.

    I am a new Blackberry user. I don't understand why if the BB servers are down, why I am not able to go on my WiFi? Can someone please explain this to me?

    Browser, BBM, Google Maps, Windows Live Messenger, Facebook, The Weather Channel, Pandora are all not working.

    In NYC, the time is 9:45 PM

    Nothing other than the phone is working right now here in NYC. Even the WiFi is kaput.
    Exact same here in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. What really sucks is that I am here on vacation, so BBM and push email are my primary means for communicating with those back home. Thankfully I am in for the evening now though, so I'm using my laptop. Here's to hoping the servers will be back up by morning.

    I also do not quite get this. I am guessing it has to do with RIM's authentication process though.

    Even on WiFi you must have a BlackBerry data plan to use proprietary RIM services (eg. BBM and push email). I know this because I canceled my data plan before going abroad once as I did not want to pay for an international data plan on top of my domestic data plan and just figured I'd use WiFi. No such luck as RIM effectually deactivated my PIN. So now with the servers down and no way to authenticate I guess the system just shuts out everyone.

    how do you get this so called opera browser?
    m.opera.com/next
    So much better than the standard BlackBerry browser even when the servers are up

    okay phew. I JUST switched tonight from my old 8310 to a sparkling new 9700 and can't get email or ubertwitter and can only use my browser when I am on Wifi. So that would fall under a BIS outage? I think I've sent my service books six times! I was coming here to post for help when I saw the outage news.

    you have all the right to yell at them. especially AT&T Customer Service Dept. AT&T hires pigs and monkeys to deal with its customers

    You and me both! So they made $3.92 BILLION in revenue this last quarter, let's hope they have some spare change to stabilize BIS!

    If BIS goes down why doesnt it just fall back on our carrier data?

    well as i learned on a different thread, the 'internet browser' still runs thru BIS. if u switch to 'hotspot browser' it will use wifi if available, and if u switch to 'media net' (at&t only) it will use just carrier data and bypass BIS.
