BlackBerry (RIM) Outage Update: Fixed, but email remains the problem

 

By Posted 18 Dec 2009, 00:50

We have an update to give you now, on the fresh BlackBerry Outage which has been affecting users across not only America, but Canada too over the last few days.

As reported from PC World, RIM has stated that the outage has now been solved, with data services said to be back to normal. However, they also stated that the email service is slowly resuming to full service, as all the servers will still be queued up – which most of you have already been telling us about in our comments section.

It’s also worth pointing out, that some users have reported a temporary fix by removing the battery from their phones and restarting, but this doesnt appear to work for everyone.

We’ll update you on the situation as we get more. Let us know if your email service has resumed or not.

    I didn’t have a problem in SLC. It didn’t stop my email or internet. Suck for everyone else who did have it go out.
