I am only showing edge (lowercase, no data) for the past 45 minutes. This does not constitute an email outage but a data outage (if it is truly an outage at all) from the carrier from my understanding. Email outages are related to the email service only and usually other data services work and phones are connecting at EDGE (uppercase with data still). Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
My mail starting coming through about 45 minutes ago. All seems well in the world. It's one of the great things about the blackberry service. I have yet to see them down very long, and it's pretty rare, so when it does happen, I typically just shrug it off.
