What is happening RIM? Where’s my Blackberry service?

What is up RIM?
Last week your Blackberry device had an outage on Verizon and T-Mobile and now tonight you have an outage for most of the Americas?

PC Magazine – RIM Confirms (Another) Blackberry Outage

Why can’t you get it right?

Many individuals and businesses depend on your service and one of your key points in going with your service is your up-time. Right now things are not going so well.

Hopefully you get this fixed quickly, but right now it doesn’t look like it will.

BlackBerry service falters in North America

The Denver Post – BlackBerry service falters in N. America
This was quite inconvenient today. It is amazing how dependent I have become to my Blackberry, especially today.

It was down for me from about 1:15 PM to about 6 PM and drove me crazy because I was dealing with several media issues that I needed to be communicating with my office in Washington, D.C., Denver, and our office in Loveland and I was on the road going to an media interview.

To make matters worse, Verizon was quite slow in coming back online following when RIM got their part back online. More inconvenience. Thanks Verizon.

I just wish that RIM wouldn’t have these outages and they should work on a backup system so they have some redundancy built in. People are becoming more dependent on their Blackberry for communication, especially in emergency situations.
