Blackberry Messenger problem in the UK

In the last 3-4 days Blackberry Messeenger has been acting very weird for everyone I know !?

 

Messages not getting sent and then later being received 3-5 times days later. I am with Vodafone and I know 3 other people experiencing this problem as well as others on other networks.

 

Its a recent thing and very annoying!

 

Is there something going on ?

Absolutly the same here. Me and my contacts are annoyed of this problem.

 

Maybe it's because the BIS Update?

Hmm I only heard about the US date (28th). 

 

Is 25th the date for Europe?

 

Btw in the US they'll shut down the whole system for about 4 hours.

I didn't notice that this will happen in Europe... maybe they updated already at running systems Smiley Very Happy

Re: Blackberry Messenger problem in the UK

Yes I'm having the same issues which I started noticing in the past couple of days. As far as I remember I didn't have the issue immediately after the latest OS upgrade. Besides, my wife, who is on O2 is having the same issues. I think it's a BB server issue, rather than a network or handset issue.

 

It is very annoying, particularly if you have grown to rely on the messenger as frequent form of communication. You may ask a contact a quick question, but the message gets stuck and doesn't get delivered until much later, by which time it is useless and actually causes confusion! Also, I noticed a disruption to the sequential messaging. So for example you'll write 3 lines of messages back to back. It won't deliver the 1st one, but deliver 2nd and 3rd and maybe deliver the 3rd one an hour later!

 

This is a major nuisance RIM, fix it quick!

Re: Blackberry Messenger problem in the UK

Yes thats it... I have messaged about 20 of my contacts and it happening to everyone!? I also have the sequential messaging problem you pointed out!

 

Must be resolved by RIM soon. BBM is somethign I use regularly and its basically useless now!

It's the same problem here in Middle East and also in France. It's came after the BIS upgrade to 3.0

Re: Blackberry Messenger problem in the UK

Hey guys,

 

I am also having this problem and so is the rest of my Contacts on BBM.  It certainly does appear to be a problem with BIS 3.0; as soon as this was deployed there's been issues with BBM.

 

Hope RIM are looking at these topics and get a fix in place as soon as possible.
