BlackBerry Messenger Outage? Let Us Know…

maninthedark We have been getting quite a few reports from tipsters that there has been some wonkiness with BlackBerry Messenger in North America. Reports also claim that there are some issues with email on Verizon but that may be a separate issue. This means that BBM message delivery and receipts are not working or experiencing issues.

Let us know if you are experiencing any issues!

  8. Ok, so we have also some issues with BIS (Orange, Poland). I run diagnostics and its says PIN-to-PIN, BBM, Email “not full”. Everything works but verry slowly.

  35. We are having similar issues in Washington DC. No email or bbm and internet is very very slow. text messages seem to work ok. we’re on AT&T and on a BES. I called RIM and their tech support line said “no outages”, this was about an hour ago

  42. VANCOUVER- I have just confirmed from the tech department at our glorious data provider here in vancouver “rogers” that it is indeed a RIM issue. it is a north american outtage and even our friends in Central and south america are experiencing the same issues as we are. this is the 3rd outtage that RIM has experienced this month according to other forums. this is the first time i experience but i must say that i am enjoying the peaceful pre-xmas bliss. How much longer of a wait who knows and who cares!! lol

  43. Portland – AT&T – no internet / BIS / BES / etc.

  44. Detroit – Verizon – no internet / BIS / BES / etc.

  45. Mississauga, Ont…been down since about 2:30pm—-Rogers network…….Hope all is good tomorrow!!!!

  46. Boston has been our since this afternoon. T-Mobile BB Specialist claims this is a global outage! No estimated repair time either.

  47. FYI – Interestingly, UMA still works. Used it to call the T-mobile help line. I always thought UMA used the RIM data network. Guess not. All data is dead – PIN, Email, GTalk, Bolt, Web, etc.

    • UMA is only for the voice network, sms.mms. it’s the wifi icon that indicates a BIS/BES connection. Which oddly enough, shows a connection, but nothing works.

  48. Texas- BB messenger completely out and browser will not pull up Facebook (8:36 p.m.)

  49. Down in KY. No BB messenger, email, internet, Facebook. A friend in TX is also experiencing same problems.

  57. BBM down on ATT in AL

  58. BIS has been down here in WY since 2pm MST

  59. This is getting ridiculous. TWO major outages in a week. RIM owes its users a REAL explanation. If Google or Yahoo or Apple or Facebook or wjatever were down this much we would get a real explanation, why do we only get smoke and mirrors bullshit out of RIM. Come on guys, be HONEST and explicit for once.

    From my BlackBerry Storm…

  60. everything is finally working this morning.

  61. Could have been out while I was asleep. Luckily, I was asleep.
