Blackberry Services (Still) Down

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 :)

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....

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.
....and not being able to look at porn in the bogs at work.

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.

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.

We use BB Enterprise Server and currently email is working fine.

Mine is working fine in the UK. Once again troubled RIM shoot themselves in the foot by turning a drama into a PR train crash. The UK CEO this morning, asked if he would apologise went into geek-speak about problems with switches and routers. This follows BBC's technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones interview with co-CEO Mike Lazaridis when Lazaridis threw his toys out the pram and stormed off following legit questions about Middle Eastern governments wanting access to Blackberry messaging. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/click_online/9456798.stm

aybe Steve Jobs is running RIM PR from beyond the grave? From Twitter this morning - "What did the iPhone say to the Blackberry? iWork"

Any chance of a refund from service providers do you think?
I think its unlikely. Its not the service providers fault and I'd imagine the T&Cs will say in the small print that they're not responsible for third party faults (even though they are charging you for the service.)

Similar (but different) - some pikeys tried to nick the copper wire out of an O2 tower near me, and ended up blowing the tower out of action for about 36hours (and themselves permanently). No local O2 coverage - but no refunds.

Still a result though. Worth 36 hours of no coverage.
