    I wonder if this "Database Update" will fix some of the problems they've been having with outages? I know some were due to power failure, but lately it seems there have been more than the usual problems / outages...
    As always, just my opinion...

    Outages suck, but I'll always prefer the planned and communicated outages over the sudden and unexpected.

    Woo! At least I'll be sleeping for the vast majority of the outage! May get some West Coast peeps, however. Switch from BBM to SMS! hehe

    I just called RIM and they can not confirm this outage. There was one in the UK last weekend but nothing scheduled for The America's for this weekend. The Tech is checking into this and will email me if this is true.

    This is just what I received as a response to my service request at RIM

    [FONT=Courier]Your Service Request has been resolved.
    Details:
    I read on a BlackBerry Forum that RIM is planning maintenance this weekend.
    Resolution:
    I emailed Jason stating that we do not have any additional maintenance scheduled for this weekend.

    It's a major database upgrade:

    Dear All,

    Please note that we have just been advised of a major database upgrade to the North American RIM Network occurring this weekend on Saturday 22nd March.

    To clarify:
    1) If you are on a BES pointed at the North American RIM Network, you WILL be affected by this outage even if you switch to an EMEA or AP SIM.
    2) If you are on a BES pointed at the EMEA or AP RIM Network and are roaming in North America and have switched to a North American SIM, you WILL be affected.
    3) If you are on a BES pointed at the EMEA or AP RIM Network and are roaming in North America with your original (EMEA or AP) SIM you WILL NOT be affected.
    4) If you are on a BES pointed at the EMEA or AP RIM Network and are outside of North America you WILL NOT be affected.
    Full details below:
