Re: OS version

Did you find a solution ?  The same thing is happening to me after I updated to OS All worked fine for 24 hours, but since this morning I am not able to access my email, calendar or contacts because of this "Unable to open a PIM session" that lists a series of line code errors and a "service Error 4". I have tried a hard reboot, deleted and recreated all accounts. I was able to re-access my emails but not send after deleting and re-adding the accounts, but then the same error appeared. What is up---I am a developer and now I am wasting my time with PIM issues that I thought were resolved... I was able to see the landscape PIM services and it all worked fine for a day. I am/was a PB fan, but this is ridiculous even for beta release....  this is for all my mail and calendar and contact accounts--all PIM --aol, hotmail, gmail...what is goin on RIM?
