Reminder: RIM Scheduled Maintenance BIS 3.0 For North American BlackBerry Users

Since our support email inbox is filling up with folks letting us know, we figured we better post this up as a reminder for anyone out there that might have missed it the first time around.

  • There will be scheduled network maintenance by Research In Motion (RIM) affecting BIS customers between 0100 CT / 0200 EDT on March 28th and 0500 CT / 0600 EDT on March 28th.
  • Blackberry will be performing a BlackBerry Internet Service v2.8 upgrade to BlackBerry Internet Service v3.0
  • BlackBerry Internet Service subscribers may be unable to send or receive messages using their BlackBerry hosted email account or integrated third-party email accounts, view email attachments, activate email service, or request to see ""more"" text during the maintenance.
  • Wireless service providers and device resellers may be unable to create subscriber accounts or provision services for subscribers.
  • The estimated duration of impact is 4 hours and affects 100% of BIS customers.

Keep this in mind if you happen to be awake and find your BlackBerry not working as it should be. Hopefully things will go as planned and when everyone wakes up the issues will have been cleared up.
