    Re: The BlackBerry outage. How were you affected?

    I thought my BB7100i was finally beyond repair as I've had several problems over past few weeks. I was even planning to return my BB to NEXTEL the next day! So I must admit, I was very relieved to find out about the outage because of course that meant neither I nor my BB was to blame. Unfortunately though, I was traveling...lost...and trying to use GPS when the outage started...NEVER want to be in that position again! Made me realize just how much I depend on my BB! Luckily when outage occurred again, I was home...Actually had to break out my laptop for first time in WEEKS. Weird thing is I still had NEXTEL coverage but no browser, GPS, email, messaging...etc. Thank Gods for PinStack! I would be so totally lost without the stacks...I have learned more about my BB here than ANYWHERE else...I AM SO THANKFUL I FOUND PINSTACK! Thanks for keeping is all "in the loop" PinStack is definitely second to my BB as far as what I depend on all day every day!

    Re: The BlackBerry outage. How were you affected?

    Work was fun, my boss (CIO) was out of the office for a meeting and he called to say he was having problems. He has also emailed us telling he was going to be out of thre office. Well, that email came in about the time he had gotten in. Oh well, it was not that bad except for another person complained all day that they were having problems and kept asking me if I knew when it would be back up.

    I was without email and internet access, but I don't have to use my blackberry for work so it was not too big of an issue.

    There are 3 events in my adult life that caused me to cry. This was one of them. If I don't have my phone in hand I'm lost and boy was I lost.

    Re: The BlackBerry outage. How were you affected?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I work for a cell provider doing PDA support and was helping a training class. All of a sudden around 20:30 every rep that asked me a question was 'this guy I'm talking to has lower case gprs' there was no pattern like only a specific market. Calls in que started creeping higher and higher. Then I noticed on my Pearl uh oh I can't send email. By 21:00 EST it was confirmed/communicated to us there was a BB outage. Had no idea until last night how large an outage it was.I know if it we're something that would have occurred earlier in the day it would have been far more devastating for some users.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I was at first delighted by the peace and quiet then my associates who suffer from obsessive-compulsive productivity had to return to those thrilling days of yesteryear and call me to tell me our BlackBerries weren't working!! NO peace for the weary!

    it was pandemonium! i will be the first to admit that i was ready to choke one of my kids!

    Re: The BlackBerry outage. How were you affected?

    I didn't get an email from my professor saying that he cancelled class. I woke up early, made moves, went to school, and class was empty . lol i laugh about it now, but i was sooooooo tight that day . It's crazy how much i depend on this bb, but that's a whole other thread.

    I thought this was worth sharing... amusing crackberry tale "the day blackberries died":

    BlackBerry service down across North America.

    I was pretty happy when the outage started, not having to worry about work. Then after my service returned i was flooded with mail. I was not happy.

    Re: The BlackBerry outage. How were you affected?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I entered this contest to hopefully win a battery door. However, my Pearl is giving me fits. If my name happens to be pulled for one of the winners, I am willing to let someone else have my prize. I'm having too much trouble with the Pearl. I may be going back to a 7105t or an 8800 if the problems continue as I'm already on my 2nd Pearl.
