There was a second Nationwide Blackberry outage the other day (see past blog entry). This was the second such outage in recent months where Blackberry Users were unable to retrieve or send email from their beloved devices. This outage was immediately announced on CNN and other major networks and the signs of frustration was even evident on the faces of the newscasters bringing the news, the entire business world seems to have a blackberry addiction! Not me, I carry a Palm Treo, my third one as a matter of fact, and even after trying to migrate to the Blackberry in recent months I found myself migrating back to the Treo.
While I was watching the panic of the service outage rollout in the news I gave my partners a call to find out if they were affected by the outage. Not knowing that much about the Blackberry service and how it works I was curious. Needless to say I was relieved to find out that they weren’t affected in any way and they were able to retrieve their email without any problems. The reason for this is because our Premium Email Service uses different settings than the standard Blackberry service that users get when they purchase their phones.
Not only does it make sense to upgrade to our Premium Email Service for the dramatic filtering of spam but also for the reliability that we bring to the table in terms of downtime, etc. I couldn’t resist posting this entry upon discovering this. If you or someone you know was affected by the nationwide Blackberry outage and would like to learn more about Pleth Premium Email Solutions, please don’t hesitate to let us know, we would love the opportunity to work with you and discuss our flagship product…Google+
