Default RIM Servers always down?

Please Login to Remove!

I don't get why it takes more than a week to do maintanence on RIM's servers?

I wonder if the hit they are taking is affecting their ability to provide their service?

I still have not been able to download the latest firmware for my 9860 for the past week as the connection times out or I get a RIM server down for maintanence error.

Really.. I just now downloaded both 7.0.0.296 (Vodafone) and 7.0.0.353 (Chunghwa) for the 9860. Took about 5 minutes each.

I've probably downloaded 7-8 different OS files in the past 10 days, 2 in the past three days... all from RIM servers. No issues.

The OP may have a local carrier issue and nothing to do with RIM. I would call the carrier to see if they have issues....if they admit it.

Can't explain why but I was having huge pains trying to download 474 for my 9860 with IE9. Speeds were 50 KB/s and it would knock out after 100 MB or so. Tried about 10 times.

Switched over to Chrome and it downloaded first try at 1 MB/s.

Maybe it's time to switch permanently.

IE is reserved for the kids who ate paste in school. FF or Chrome

Probably has more to do with the connection than the browser.
