I do apologize for not posting updates any faster then available to me.  As many users have stated this is a RIM issue and has nothing to do with Verizon Wireless, except the disruption it has caused Verizon Wireless customers.  There are several stories on the net discussing the outage, here are a few links:

 

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2009-12-23/rim-says-some-blackberry-users-suffering-delays-update1-...

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2357516,00.asp

 

While it is being reported on the net that this issue is resolved Twitter users are still reporting outage in messageing:

Please let me know if you are back up and running.

Could this also be the cause of why I lost all my BB messgae contacts?

Hi Michele,

 

Any ETA on this yet? Considering the length of the outage so far and the apparently large area affected (based on some BB message boards), I assume we're talking something pretty "serious" here.

Any update yet?  This is ridiculous.

is this just a verizon issue or are all carriers experiencing?

This couldn't have come at a worse time. This is very ridiculous! Any ETA would be nice.

Thanks for the update but after spending some $$ to get my wife and I BlackBerry Curves yesterday, you can sense the frustration I, as well as many others have.

 

And of course this is the second time in a week this has happened!  :smileysad:

PatrickTX: Based on the conversation going on in the Crackberry Forums, I'd say it's all carriers. Sounds like it's an issue with RIM's servers, not VZW.
