Hayden, who runs the superb Pinstack BlackBerry forum, offers a post with some practical advice the next time it appears that your BlackBerry service has gone down.The first thing you should do is run a test to determine whether it is just your BlackBerry, your network- or as we saw yesterday- issues that are totally more widespread.
The BlackBerry Beat
Russell Shaw's blog keeps fiercely loyal BlackBerry users up to speed on new models, technologies, carrier promotions, tips and tricks, and relevant corporate news.
Last week, I made a post uncovering the a just-published BlackBerry Patent application for technology that would enable a touchscreen BlackBerry.Well, today at the Mobile World Congress, Jim Balsillie, the co-CEO of BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion strongly implied that this could very well happen.
A representative of BlackBerry traffic analysis solutions provider Zenprise softwarei just got back to me with the scoop of some diagnostics that are pointing to at least one problem likely at the root of today's bad BlackBerry North American services outage:Basically there are two paths (IP addresses) in North America to connect to the RIM network.
BB Geeks has managed to obtain access to either a forthcoming CDMA-capable BlackBerry 8330, or to photos of same.We don't know where or when this Curve device will be released, nor the price.
This from BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion:BlackBerry subscribers may be unable to send or receive messages. Subscribers may also be unable to register their device, roam in another location, or use other services such as Internet browsing.
Sounds serious, and it is.As an AT&T Mobility BlackBerry subscribver, I first started to pick up something wrong when I sent some photos of me swimming in a spa pool yesterday to some of my other email addys.
Tipsters to Boy Genius Report, well, report that T-Mobile will start sellng the BlackBerry 8820 on March 5.The model, which has form and functional identical to the AT&T BlackBerry 8820, is said to be supporting T-Mobile Hotspot@Home Service.
A new BlackBerry Patent application published this morning strongly points to a touchscreen BlackBerry- similar to the touchscreen iPhone.It's also important to note that although most BlackBerry Patent applications are only published 18 months after they are filed, this one has only a four-month gap.
Reports have been pouring in for the last several hours.AT&T BlackBerry service, which run on AT&T's not so edgy EDGE network, are really having a rough patch with connectivity today.
A new BlackBerry Patent app just published today would make it easier than it currently is to generate emails containing invites for future meetings from the BlackBerry Calendar.Then, the technology would also provide recipients with an email interface they can reply to the recipient with.
