RIM Customers Suffer Another BlackBerry Outage
Link to the AP wire story, snippet:
A software glitch shut down e-mail service for some BlackBerry users Friday, and delays were still being felt hours after the problem was fixed.
Research in Motion Ltd., the Waterloo, Ontario-based company that makes the ubiquitous mobile device, said no e-mails were lost in the shutdown that affected an unspecified number of customers in North America who subscribe to the BlackBerry Internet Service. Phone service and text messaging were unaffected.
However, even after e-mail service was restored, slowdowns persisted into Friday night as message backlogs were being cleared out. The company did not provide an estimate of when service would return to normal and did not specify the software problem.
Poor BlackBerry users, I feel sorry for you guys every time I see another RIM outage. Why do you suffer these, is it because ‘The Man’ is forcing you to use these devices and RIM service as opposed to something like a Windows Mobile device using Exchange ActiveSync for Direct Push so you have total control over your E2E solution?
Please educate me.
