Blackberry network outage

What an absolute fiasco, I've had no service since yesterday afternoon and according to reports, I'm not alone.

I've never thought about it before, but why is it that all our emails and browsing have to be routed via a RIM server in Slough, UK? this isn't the case with other enterprise handsets e.g. iPhone, Android, Windows etc.. and secondly, has RIM been mortally wounded by this, because their legendary reliability and robust network has been laid bare?

Re: Blackberry network outage

Actually, the hops are far more fun that than - your BES, Swisscom's and then the RIM NOC which is indeed in the UK. I reckon it's to keep tabs on licencing.....

Re: Blackberry network outage

That's good to know that I am not the only one with not properly working Blackberry for already two days (actually couple of weeks ago there was the same sh*t during the weekend)

Re: Blackberry network outage

It only affected the US today....that's why there is more news coverage on the topic. Europe, Middle-East & Asia affected for 3 days.

Come, friendly bombs, and fall on Slough!
They have no need for BBM now...

Via Slough? Maybe you have to ask GCHQ?

Attachment 33742

I called him and asked him - I didn't catch it all, but he did say something about "Flackberry Buckers" and that he "wouldn't be Dean Sucking Fed with Juan"

Re: Blackberry network outage

I noticed that I actually missed that little blinking red light in the evening.
Does that mean I am a workaholic?

They are certainly trying hard and becoming a case study in the process

So that users have to buy a "Blackberry Service" provided by them as opposed to internet access that can be provided by any cellular carrier.

Re: Blackberry network outage

Cannot believe that it has taken until yesterday evening before Orange CH sms'd that there are problems and they will notify again when all services are available... I've had problems since Monday just after 1pm.

I did sms back saying thatthere message was 2 days late and asking what the compensation will be...not holding my breath on that one!

It might be a good time for mothers to take their grown up daughters to the doctor.
