Reminder: Scheduled BlackBerry Outage Tonight


RIM really needs to start informing the end user (me :)) of these outages in advance via email.

Is there any means of learning about these outages, or confirming the existence of unintended outages, other than stumbling across them here? I'm aware of and will give it a try. :)


I haven't been receiving my emails as fast as I have since the 0utage, hope it is temporary.
