Still not working on UK Voda either.
I'd be really interested what the problem was from a techy perspective. The BIS servers are resolvable by DNS and pingable.
Really REALLY need it working again!

I guess it depends on which server you have been allocated ?? I'm assuming the servers are clustered or something ? I should hope they are anyway.
Mine's still off this morning anyway

I'm not a BB architect, but I'm not sure it has to do with the BIS servers themselves, but the authentication within them. I say this because as lainchir says, the BIS servers are pingable via wifi. So they're seen. Further, some are working and some aren't, within the same country.
Oh well, another day of a slow BB (or a fast BB without email). I think I'll just put it down and get frustrated with my iPhone now
BTW, I'll report I had BIS/WIfi for about 10minutes last night. No wifi on BT at home and no Wifi at work (non-BT) I'm TMobile UK located in the Greater London area.
