Woke up this morning with no e-mails on my Verizon BlackBerry 8830. When I checked my Outlook I had tons of inter-office mail and alerts from www.dataoutages.com.
Dataoutages sent through lots of alerts from RIM like this one:
Valued Customer, This e-mail is to inform you of a network problem that MAY affect your Mobile Service.Trouble Ticket Number: TT000006270606 Severity: 2-Medium
Description of Issue: Degradation of RIM Blackberry Provisioning. Location of Issue: All Regions ;All Markets and surrounding areas Start Time: Feb 20 2008 03:00 AM PST
Looks like another BlackBerry slow down. One of two in this week. So is Palm right? Its newest ad touts, in so many words, NO DOWNTIME! I love my BlackBerry, but I recently reviewed the Palm Centro for AT&T and really took a liking to it. Sure my fingers would cramp from the keyboard, but is it a price I am willing to pay for constant push e-mail and no service interruptions? I think so. I, like many I know, wake up in the morning to my BlackBerry’s alarm and grab it not only to snooze but to check my e-mails. Probably not the most healthy habit, but I don’t like starting my day without e-mail! RIM, get it together.
