We were affected. Not sure about cell service as I didn't get or make any calls, but our BES was down for about 3 hours.
NO- THANK YOU SWEET BABY JEEZUZ!
Outage? There was an Outage? really??
Like most of the Berry addicts out there I heard about the outage and was about to freak out when I realized I was informed of the outage via BB Messenger.
Through out the outage I continued to send and recieve emails, BB messages and make calls. So I don't think it is fair to say that I was not affected. Neither were about a dozen or so people I regularly communicate with who also have Berry's...
SO out of curiousity I just wanted to take quick poll to guage how serious this was....
DID THE BLACKBERRY OUTAGE AFFECT YOU?
"Things that you want to change in the world have to start inside yourself. You have to be thinking. You have to be resisting. You have to be talking."
– George Carlin
Don't know how but I was able to use BB Messenger et al. through the entire outage.

Nope, no problems with TMO in the midwest.
I was only able to send/receive SMS texts, play games, PIN via Compose PIN, browse the web and use the phone.
I could not use email or BB Messenger
The only thing I really noticed was that my email was down for a few hours. It was more than an annoyance than anything though since I was checking my email on my laptop anyway.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The outage did affect me, but I wasn't aware of it until I visited PinStack. Initially, I was receiving messages for the better part of the day, but when they stopped, I didn't think much of it. I noticed that a message sent via BlackBerry Messenger wasn't going through nor any of the emails I sent to myself (as a test), a visit to PinStack confirmed the horror.
I was down for the most part of the afternoon but could use the browser off and on.
I'm true to the game called Blackberry!
Yeah I was affected I was actually in the middle of a conversation with a good friend of mine when everything stopped working. I was able to send SMS but its just not the same. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
yeah kinda, work was kind slow. it was on and off for me
Yes, phone and sms worked, but email was extremely slow and browsing was hit or miss for a couple hours here in the Phoenix valley on Alltel. I had to sit in the car for 25 minutes waiting for my son to get out of track practice. I was stuck playing games.....no Pinstack!!!! It made me sad
My work device (8830 on BES) lost email capabilities for a few hours.
My personal device (8130 on BIS) had no problems.
I didn't even realize there was an outage till I saw the 11 o'clock news last night.
I still have a migraine from it...
I got the T-Mobile Alert (text message alert) about it AFTER my Pearl had already come back up.
I feel your pain @ berry-buster. I was like "WTF happened to my email?" when I didn't get a reply to one I sent out. I finally got that reply 7 hours later.
