    For any fellow Blackberry Users out there....

    BBC News - Blackberry services down in Europe, Middle East and Africa

    Blackberry services are down across Europe, Middle East and Asia.
    It doesn't seem to be effecting everyone. But I thought I'd share with you all so you don't come home and spend an hour fiddling/reflashing your phone only to find out that its a network issue (like I just did.....)
     
  2. Glad it wasn't just me that did that too then... only spotted it on BBC news while I was waiting for BBM to reinstall as the Mrs was bugging me over not being able to send me drivel about her day. Personally I quite enjoyed the break :)
     
  3. It's been quite nice not to have my phone vibrating every four minutes with spam emails. It was crap not to be able to trawl the BBC Sport site at dinner time though.

    Yea I had an abusive "why aren't you responding to my emails" text from the Mrs. She's off trying Zumba tonight and in all honesty I don't want to hear how it went....

    ....and not being able to look at porn in the bogs at work.
     
  5. Look, if you're our cleaner I've told you that I didn't know you were there, I've apologised and I'd just like to put the whole sorry incident behind us now.

    It seems as though the servers have crashed again....

    BBC News - Blackberry users complain on Twitter of fresh crash

    Mine came back online last night about 2300. Thought it was acting odd when I popped out for a fag earlier this morning (1130) but it seems like the servers have officially crashed. Again.

    Anyone looking for updates, the Blackberry and BlackberryHelp twitter feeds were useful last night, but haven't been updated since.

    Both of mine are working fine in DE, FR and CH since the weekend.

    If they're works phones your firm will likely have its own servers so shouldn't be a problem. Only effecting "Personal" users (in the main).

    My mate in CH says her's is working fine (non-works phone) - it seems to be fairly hit and miss across Europe.

    They are both effectively private - on Vodafone DE contracts.
     
  10. We use BB Enterprise Server and currently email is working fine.
     
  11. All data (Twitter, emails, internet, Faceache etc) appears to be down on mine again - private O2.

  13. If the iPhone follows suite then we will have an Apple and Blackberry crumble.

  15. Any chance of a refund from service providers do you think?
