Blackberry Outage - 2/11/08

RIM is experiencing an interruption in service throughout the United States; this is affecting all U.S. BlackBerry users regardless of carrier. No root cause has yet been identified.

Currently, BlackBerry users are unable to send or receive e-mail. PIN-to-PIN messaging also appears to be affected.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Talk about tech support calls. We've got 20 people that need to be called back and told there is an Outage

Sorry, but the keyboard on the iPhone blows big chunks.
You must've been really slow on the treo to start with

if my company wants me to get email on the road, they can buy me a blackberry or pay for my dataplan.
