Default Orange UK problems today?

Please Login to Remove!

OK so I figured more Orange UK users would be looking at this forum than the outages forum so posted here instead - apologies mods!

Since about 7am today I haven't been able to receive any messages at all on my handset, either via BES or BIS. Anyone else having probs? Just about to upgrade my firmware to see if it's a handset problem. BES messages I send from my handset do go through okay though.

Cheers,

Chris

I am on Orange and have not experienced any problems today. In fact, I upgraded the firmware yesterday and this seems to have improved the "dropping coverage" problem although probably too early to say this for certain.

It's not just Bolds... I was trying to send emails to my testing Pearl and was getting this back:

-----------------
This is the mail system at host mail017.bisx.prod.on.blackberry.

I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster>

If you do so, please include this problem report. You can delete your own text from the attached returned message.

The mail system

<xxxxxx@bell.blackberry.net>: host 172.20.128.32[172.20.128.32] said: 550 5.2.1
<xxxxxx@bell.blackberry.net>... Mailbox disabled for this recipient (in reply
to RCPT TO command)

-----------------

Which, is not right. I can send to that email again now -- but some are getting through and some aren't. I'm guessing it's something inside RIM's network that's got problems since about last night.

Thanks for the feedback M. This turned out to be a handset issue - have just upgraded the firmware and as soon as it came back up it reactivated itself and everything that was queued up both via BES and BIS came through. Strange, but hope that's the end of the problems and hope you get yours sorted too.

Cheers

It's the sticky "latest OS" thread at the top of this forum.
