BlackBerry Confirms Yesterday’s Sensor Issues Caused By Their Servers… WTF?

We told you yesterday that BlackBerry 10 devices were having issues with sensors that was resolved by BlackBerry and required a restart. Now BlackBerry manager, Michael Clewley, has put out a statement on the resolution. Here is what he had to say:

A server that provides sensor calibration information to the phone was sending corrupt data that would affect the sensors to the phone. The issue was resolved at the server. Customers that are affected can simply restart their phone to resolve the problem.

This really just raises more questions for me. How is an issue with my devices sensors caused by BlackBerry’s severs. What exactly is my device doing during a reboot that is reaching out to BlackBerry servers to correct? BlackBerry really should be more transparent on this issue…

  1. That’s what I was afraid of, how much control do they have over BlackBerry 10?
    I thought BIS was out and we are not bound by any BlackBerry services if we wanted to…

  2. Agreed, especially since there are so many backdoors in system apps…

  3. Pretty scary. Ah well, B(ig)B(rother) fixed everything.

    Seems like they’re hoping to ignore this one away and it might be working.
