We just received an email from BlackBerry Network administration asking to upgrade our BlackBerry Messengers if we are running 188.8.131.52 or .56, so make sure everyone is doing this so we dont have a relapse of yesterday.
I was tossing and turning in my sleep last night wondering if when I woke up this BlackBerry outage nightmare would be over and to my amazement it was. Many people are wondering why did it happen? RIM has released a statement on the Dec 22nd outage and blames in on BlackBerry messenger 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11. There is currently a Messenger upgrade on App World, which will bring you up to 18.104.22.168. How were you effected by the outage? make sure to post in the comments.
Reserch In Motion BlackBerry outage statement.
A service interruption occurred Tuesday that affected BlackBerry customers in the Americas. Message delivery was delayed or intermittent during the service interruption. Phone service and SMS services on BlackBerry smartphones were unaffected. Root cause is currently under review, but based on preliminary analysis, it currently appears that the issue stemmed from a flaw in two recently released versions of BlackBerry Messenger (versions 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199) that caused an unanticipated database issue within the BlackBerry infrastructure. RIM has taken corrective action to restore service.
*UPDATE Service has been restored
*UPDATE still no sign of any improvement 12:56am

I really can’t believe another week has gone by, it just went too fast. This week was, what I would call a milestone week for many reasons, this week we had many 5.0 OS leaks which mean we are closer than ever to a wide spread OS 5.0 launch and we had the video of the sprint branded Essex make an appearance on our web site. But just in case you missed something here is a little recap of the week.
