Hi folks! So today isn’t a good day for RIM! It’s also not a good day for customers, especially if you use BIS instead of BES.

RIM is experiencing some network issues today that is affecting customers across North America. The issues are causing delays in emails for any customers on the BIS platform. If you’re using BES for your mail synchronization then this doesn’t affect you.

RIM doesn’t need outages at times like this when people are buying Christmas gifts for their family and friends. It just might encourage the normal everyday user to buy an iPhone instead of a BlackBerry. Come on RIM, get your act together! This isn’t the first time this has happened and I’m sure Apple is loving every second of this.
