Reports have been coming out all around the country about a data outage on AT&T today. It does not seem to have been a problem on RIM’s side since this is also hurting iPhone users. I have not seen any issues on AT&T in New York but InfoWorld and quite a few others have reported outages elsewhere.
The outage started around 6AM EST and ended around 4PM EST according to most reports. I can’t even begin to imagine how that screwed up many peoples schedule today. Maybe we need to start carrying around redundant BlackBerrys or even worse, a WM device.
So I really have to ask. Any good stories about how you survived the day without your BlackBerry? Was it a religious experience? Withdrawl? Independence?
