    Question Total RIM Network Failure or Just AT&T?

    Advertisement



    The BlackBerry network just went down about 20 minutes ago... I'm curious if it's specific to AT&T or another system-wide outage / failure like the one that happened on February 13th?

    Exactly the same thing is happening to our devices as happened then... no connectivity through either the internet or BlackBerry browser, but the carrier browser's still working. No connectivity beyond our BES. I'm hoping this isn't going to become commonplace with the BlackBerry network... twice in a few months!

    Anybody on other carries experiencing trouble?

    it's doing it to me too. I'm a newbie to these phones, so I thought it was just a setting I might have changed

    Ugh... It looks like the entire system is down once again... I could barely believe it the first time it happened (I misquoted in my first post... it was April that the network crashed)

    As far as maintenance, we always get critical priority emails about those, so I'm pretty sure that's not what's happening, though I may be wrong.

    Yeah I noticed blackberryforums is down too... Jeez, our whole BlackBerry world is crumbling

    same thing in Vancouver, Canada. BES says it lost contact to SRP about 1.5 hours ago...

    Luckily it happened in the middle of the night... I'm sure there's a frenzy of activity going on at RIM right about now though.

    Can only get edge on AT&T in NYC. Last email received at 1:00 am exactly. Later emails have not arrived.

    Could you imagine if something like this would hit at say 8AM Eastern? There'd be panic in the streets. I can't get through to our advanced network support. I hope it's up by morning, or I'm sure all of our users will be calling me. (not to mention the fact that it'll be hard to get through the day without my BB).

    Maybe I'll just stay in bed

    Just called AT&T. They said this was scheduled outage from 11p to 6a (EST). I usually get an email from RIM about scheduled outages, but I didn't on this one. Nice work, RIM. I'm going back to sleep.

    Did you read that email I sent? Am I crazy or did the email say nothing about "All your f**king servers will be down"? Thanks RIM!!

    Okay well that is officially crappy..... Is everyone completely back up? Mine is still being hokey a little. And what about the little guy who doesn't manage a BES. What kind of notice did we get.. I understand most normal people will not even relized their service was down, but to us night people it was kinda crappy to pull.
