I have to say - it always makes me chuckle here. The nature of the beast with email and the net is that sometimes there are delays - and those delays can happen anywhere along a fairly complex chain. They happen with sometimes with getting email into my regular PC mailboxes, although *usually* that's quite reliable. They also happen on occasion with my BB, although *usually* that's quite reliable also.
To be honest, the last couple hours I've noticed about a 10 minute delay with the normal instantaneous delivery to my BB on the auto-forwarded business email - but I guess I tend to just take that all in stride and not immediately think the sky is falling - like some seem to do when all of a sudden it takes 10-15 minutes to get an email via BB once in a while. I do a LOT of business via email, and use BB email to help me there a lot. But there's very little that will ever fall apart disastrously if an email arrives 10-15 minutes late - on the computer OR on the BB!
(Not saying that's what was happening with YOUR thread here, just a convenient spot to vent! While I'm venting though, what does this have to do with the 8700 in particular to go in THIS forum, instead of in the BlackBerry general or RIM software forum???)
WHoopdedeoo for you
I'm so glad you're email is working and that you found the time to "vent".
It is shocking that people would want their email on the 300 dollar piece of equipment they have that's less that a year old on the supposedly new bis that they pay (or at least i do) 50 bucks a month to keep running.
No, my email is not 10 minutes late
It's non-existant and has been since 10am (yes that would be 6 hours now) and yes it is seriously affecting my workday and my ability to do my job
and no it's not just me it's all over the RIM network as was told to me by a cingular customer service representative earlier.
You're right though, maybe this thread shouldn't be in the 8700 area but then again if your service is working then you shouldn't be posting in this thread.
Sorry just also had to "vent" about something that "made me chuckle"
Seriously though sometimes people just want to know they aren't alone or the only one having a problem. That's why they come here. If it sounds like people are over-emoting they might actually be employing irony. Anytime someone posts something along the lines of "Well sucks for you but mine works", it just doesn't seem helpful or amusing.
