Lightbulb Service Provider Browsers May Still Work

Please Login to Remove!

Just as a point of interest, your service provider browser may still work during the outage as it is not dependent upon MDS as the other Blackberry browsers are. So, if you want something to do while you wait for RIM to bring the system back online why not download the latest version (1.4.5) of Google Maps or some of the other great free Blackberry software out there that's installable from the service provider browser?

Google Maps: Google Maps
Beyond 411: http://www.thebogles.com/berry411.jad
Blackberry Maps: BlackBerry - BlackBerry | BlackBerry Maps
Blackberry Messenger: http://www.blackberry.com/messenger
GoogleTalk: http://www.blackberry.com/googletalk

Installing any one of these apps is much more gratifying than posting yet another message that you're 'still down in Omaha', guaranteed.

That would be a fabulous idea if they worked. They use the data connection that routes through RIM's system. I can guarantee that google maps and BB messenger DO NOT work. the only thing that works is the WAP browser.

We have a Tx1. Only 70 users. Thats too bad they coudl really reduce the number of calls if there were a little more proactive with this.

..that is correct you will have to wait for the service to come back up before you can actually use these apps, but you can still install and configure the applications now while the service is down and when it comes back up they will be ready for use.

If you simply must have an app that you can use right now while the RIM data service is unavailable, try http://www.operamini.com which is not dependent on MDS or other RIM services.

I am actively browsing with Opera Mini v 3.1.7196 right now. I even looked up 'bluetrane' on google images and pulled up several pictures of the John Coltrane 'Blue Train' album. Perhaps your service provider or your BES admin isn't allowing you to use the application.

It's been hit and miss in LA since around 9pm PDT. My BES is currently unable to make an SRP connection. Seems to me that RIM found the problem and the issue now is everyone's system playing catch-up.

Unhappy Security perspective on the outage

360 Security makes an excellent point regarding potential timing of an attack, particularly when you consider the widescale deployment of Blackberry devices in government...

Blackberry / RIM Outage? (Sync)

I guess we will just have to wait it out.. though it is strange because I have mostly read about this affecting BES... are you on BIS or BES?
