Thread: Blackberry servers down?
12-23-2009, 04:28 AM #1Blackberry servers down?
I've been wondering what's happening and I from what I've gathered, after trying to get a hold of tech support for Rogers Wireless, there was an automated message saying that email services were down for a lot of customers.
I waited on hold for about 5 more mintues or so then hung up. I then hit up google and found a few articles and threads of other forums of people saying there are nation-wide outages across multiple carriers in different countries.
Is any one else experiencing these issues? Nothing on my data side works, but phone/sms is okay.
I'm a new Blackberry user, so this was kind of a shocker to me after everything was working so well.
I'm going to wait a bit longer, then maybe call tech support tomorrow and see what's up.

Look at this thread:
**ALERT: BBM/PIN/BIS Service Down / 12/22/2009 / All Carriers ** - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com
The 8th post down is a user from Rogers stating they are having problems too.
Bad thing about Blackberries is they rely on a central server. When it goes down then it affects the phone. Probably best idea is to wait it out. No point in calling tech support when you know BIS is down and your not the only oneMember Of The Month for December '08.
It's only the internet!

Yeah I ended up holding out from calling again... just tried all of my services and they seem to be working fine now after I did a battery pull.. This is all so new to me so it's quite the learning curve.
It was odd because on my old iPhone, with wifi enabled, I could surf the net and use apps and all that jazz, but with the blackberry's wifi, I can't, even if their servers are down? It just seems odd that it wouldn't work on wifi..
I donno, I've got more research to do lol.
EDIT: MSN is up now, my rogers/yahoo mail seems to be working.. not sure about BBM, facebook is still a no go with connection errors.. browsing is partial, some pages work, others don't.
