    Rolling Blackberry Email Blackouts (6/24/2006)

    Advertisement



    Some of you (myself included) may be experiencing "rolling email blackouts" on your email accounts on your Blackberry devices.

    Apparently this started happening within the last 12 hours.

    Apparently ALL carriers are effected and the email blackouts aren't situated to just one location (NY to PA to IL to TX to CA).

    Just letting you know that RIM is aware of the problem and hopes to have it solved by 5pm EDT today, June 24th.

    Is this only for blackberry email, or emails that are pushed?

    Considering the fact that now there are reports of people's inboxes being flooded by hundreds of emails at once , I think its pretty safe to say that the situation has now been resolved...

    May be a few more spotty times, but overall looks like we are all back up and running.

    I just lost GPRS. It went to GSM. Is this part of the rolling blackout?

    EDIT: I just pulled the battery and the SIM card for 30 seconds, reinserted both and got GPRS back.
