As we've been advised by Audit over at Dataoutages, Rogers and RIM have planned some downtime for their BlackBerry users on BIS and BES systems on January 17th. The window of downtime is not really that bad, depending on what type of hours you sleep. Start Time: 02:00 AM (EDT) End Time: 06:00 AM (EDT) with the outage being that of a National one for Rogers Wireless customers.
"Work Summary: Rogers customer with Blackberry devices may be unable to send or receive messages during the maintenance. They may also be unable to register their device, roam in another location, or use other services such as Internet browsing. At the same time, BlackBerry Enterprise Servers may be unable to connect to the BlackBerry Infrastructure during this maintenance."
All in all, not that bad of an outage. Oddly enough, planned outages seem to be more tolerated or accepted then a flat out blindsided one. That's how I feel anyways, what about you all..tolerated, accepted or still a major bummer?
