BlackBerry Services Down In North America Once Again


Reports are coming in of a possible BIS (BlackBerry Internet Services) Outage. We’ve already seen enough outages this year, and yet, here we have another one. According to Engadget, it looks like BIS is down in all of North America. As of yet, there is no word on when the outage will be fixed, but these outages usually don’t last very long. The majority of BlackBerry users are having trouble with Messenger, web browsing, and apps that consume data (although email seems to be unaffected). Is BIS down for you? Let us know in the comments!

    Wow is this a common problem. I just got the new bold a little more than a week ago and here we are with problems already. If this is a regular thing let me know so I can take this pos back within my 30 days. Hit me at

    I’m sorry why is there a direct screenshot of Streamline?

    hmmm…I had trouble with the first outage earlier in the week but NO outages for me so far yesterday or today. Emails came in all last night. I’ve tried my internet and could hit websites.

    Can also use messenger fine.

    It is getting very odd though. I had a bb 8900 for almost a year before going to the 9700 and never remember any outages last year (or any that effected me).

    I’m showing the issue resolved as of 10am EST. Anyone who is still having issue may want to powercycle.

    I have worked for T-Mobile for about 2 yrs now and this is the first time i have expirienced something like this, from the sidekicks to the android market and now blackberry’s???? T-Mobile kind of got on track pushing out new phones in the last 2 yrs, but none of that matters when you can used them half the time! I get at least 3 people a day with sidekick issues in my store. SO T-MOBILE, STEP IT UP!!! you guys are not looking so good right now!

    • Crux

      I have friends not on T-Mobile also having the same issue so it isn’t only T-Mobile

    • Devin

      no it is not just t-mobile…it all us carriers with blackberry services….

    @Rosely Ovalles
    the sk was a danger/microsoft problem, not tmo..same thing with this one, bb servers were down, again not tmo..i do understand that tmo does sell the devices and fully supports them but you can only do so much when your business partner systems go down..all tmo can do is apoligize and make sure this wont happen again..which is fine for me, i can live without my cell for a couple of moves on

    I have VZW so its not just T-MO.I have hiccups here and there but I didn’t have access at all lastnight. My cousin has local NTELOS and hers came back on at 1 am EST.
