Re: Blackberry List

I sent this off list to Justin, but realized that it might be of use to the rest of the list, as well.

We went on the same hunt today when we noticed something was amiss and stumbled upon an unofficial notification list for Blackberry outages.

The subscribe page is here:

It's moderated, seems to be fairly low on the noise level, and has definitely helped us figure out what was going on.

Hello everyone...

I realize this isn't the right forum for this, so, does anyone have a
Blackberry list that has discussions much like what we do here? Even
better, that might have information or alerts for when there are
issues? I'm seeing an issue right now where phones from two
independant providers have not recieved updates from two independant
BES servers since 2:30 PM CST (that's now about 2 1/2 hours). Justin

From the Wall Street Journal:

	A widespread service outage hit BlackBerry users Monday
	afternoon. AT&T said it has been told by Research In Motion
	that the problem is with RIM's infrastructure, and is
	affecting all wireless carriers in North America. The
	disruption follows an outage last April that left millions
	of customers without email access.
