I Don't seem to be having any problems.

Hm. I wondered why I suddenly just got like seven e-mails in the last three minutes.

Thanks, Internet!

My BB on T-Mobile works fine.
My fiancee's BB on T-Mobile is busted.
My colleague's Verizon BB is busted.

What gives?

But then how am I supposed to write emails in the car? Having my laptop out just wouldn't be safe.

FTFA: The outage came the same day RIM, which is based in Waterloo, Ontario, was to release quarterly earnings.

Someone's getting shiatcanned

I'm assuming it's just now been corrected. Mine won't shut the fark up.

I felt a great disturbance in the 3G network, as if millions of voices suddenly tweeted in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

I didn't even notice. I guess I'm not as attached to my phone as some people.

I think they should all use their Blackberries at once in protest!

I wondered why I just got a bunch all in at once, too. And now I know.

I don't think the issue is "resolved" as stated in the article, though, since I'm getting email to my PC that still isn't getting to my BB.

Oh noes! How can I warn somebody that we're about to do a drive-by shooting at their house?
 
2009-12-17 06:03:02 PM
I kinda wondered why I had messages on my computer, but not on my BB. No worries - the PetFood Direct coupon wasn't time sensitive!

Blackberry users aren't real people anyway

HA!
It's only 3:00 here.

I hate and love my Storm. I love watching youtube clips on it while I'm at the gym (in 26 minutes), but I hate pretty much everything else. Why the fark with all that memory do I have application restrictions and an issue with downloading complex web pages? Did it really require a 3rd party app like quickpull to make it usable? Seriously, it takes so little to make the phone useless for receiving or dialing calls due to memory problems. Maybe I'm too lazy to research the answers, I just miss using my dinosaur phone.

Anyway, this outage is unlikely to impact me since my phone is useless most of the time anyway. And this is the replacement phone. Grrrrrr.

This shiat has been driving me nuts all day. Now I'm getting emails that I read on my computer hours ago trickling in with new emails. Great fun! Thanks Blackberry!

2009-12-17 06:08:46 PM
Yeah... I went to send an email with an attachment on my computer right before I was getting ready to leave work... Only to find out I had missed three important emails in the last two hours and that I had 45 more minutes of shiat to do before I could drive home, meaning I was going to have to sit in traffic instead of just jetting home easily.

Mine worked fine today.
But it must have Microsoftedtm itself last nite and rebooted.
I lost my 3 month ongoing game of brick breaker which I had gone around 70 times and had a score over 1 million.
I was very angsty this morning.

Dammit.
 
2009-12-17 06:19:47 PM
make me some tea: Yeah, I haven't gotten any gmail on my phone all day. The BES emails are still coming in, though.

Damn. I was hoping for a reprieve.

Mine was down in the morning, but has been up for, oh, five hours now?

Yeah, we didn't know there was an outage until we started reading the news.

BES is damn expensive, though.
