just heard something on radio news about this on my way home from work - think it's a BIG blackberry problem.

It's on the BBC news website.

I've had to turn my laptop on to get an MN fix today blush.

Mine does this. I take the battery out of the back and let it reboot, this sometimes sorts the problem out. When it doesn't I test the connection, this works also. It's a PITA. This may not work if they are all down today though. confused

How strange! I have been to meadowhall today so not checked fb on my phone most of the day, when I got in it wouldn't connect, then an email came through saying it needed upgrading so i did so, Still cant get on now, Twitter is on but not refreshing Arghhhhh so annoying!

PastGrace Mon 10-Oct-11 18:11:45

My emails and facebook/twitter notifications are starting to filter through slowly, so hopefully it's nearly fixed. I'm with o2.

Is everyone back to normal now? I still can't get newsfeed /updates from facebook on my BlackBerry and emails don't seem to be coming through very regularly either...

Still can't get on the Internet angry

Meglet Wed 12-Oct-11 16:22:24

Still not working. The e-mails are pinging through every few hours in one go. Internet, BBM, Twitter & FB apps won't work either. Orange here too.

Have turned it on and off and taken the battery off but still won't work properly angry.
