Beejive: BIS Networking Issues
We are currently experiencing some slowness in the BIS transport with all of the North American Carriers. We are investigating this issue along with RIM and will keep you all posted.
If you see any unusual latency in sending/receiving messages or you are unable to connect through BIS transport option, try changing it to tcp.
Note: TCP transport option works only if you have the appropriate apn settings for your carrier under your BlackBerry Options->Advanced Options->TCP
You can find the apn settings for most of the north american carriers here BeeJive :: JiveTalk mobile messenger - instant messaging to go
Thank You for your patience!
