9-9-09 4:30 PM, Verizon/ATT BIS Down
Confirmed via phone call to tech support. Supposedly (1) widespread and (2) a RIM issue.

Thanks-I just hung up with a Verizon tech and he had no clue how to fix it! I might as well have called Brittany Spears!

Seems to be OK now, unless someone forgot to tell Long Island that there was supposed to be an outage. :)

Phyll826 09-09-2009 06:15 PM

Still AWOL in Central PA

PapiPabs 09-09-2009 06:18 PM

As JSanders mentioned, BBM seems to be going strong. I've been receiving an email here and there, but nowhere close to the amount that were in the actual inboxes when I checked.

On the plus side, the device is able to connect to BIS through email settings now. It wasn't able to when I checked a few hours ago. Baby steps in the right direction are better than no movement at all I suppose.

Zolutar 09-09-2009 06:26 PM

Add Bell Mobility to the list. I am getting some email, but inconsistant and out of receiving order ugh

omrjln 09-09-2009 06:27 PM
