Do you have a link to the official announcement?
well thank god i found this blog. i was pulling my hair out over lack of BB email and browser.
I’ve got 8:17am and the BIS service still appears to be down. Anyone else up and running?
Down and out. At least this time it’s over the weekend.
Install the Gmail app for BB at http://www.google.com/mobile/mail/index.html
Most of the time this still works when RIM has an outage and you can set Gmail up to “fetch” mail from other accounts. Mine’s been working throughout this outage.
