As much as I love my BlackBerry, RIM’s implementation of BIS is a joke. We are now amidst the third BlackBerry outage in less than a week. I am beginning to wonder if I weren’t a BES user if I would still be BlackBerry user at all.
To be honest, I am actually kind of amazed that all the BIS outages that RIM has had over the passed three years or so haven’t been more detrimental to the company. Can you imagine if one of the wireless carriers had 3 major outages in a week and regularly had a major out or two every few months?
