Which would be easy if the BB AppWorld wasn't such a piece of crap. My Bold 9000 always requires multiple attempts and battery pulls when I try to upgrade software using AppWorld.

RIM needs to take some serious lessons from Apple when it comes to handheld software.

Yea those 2 outages in a week sucked.
I still find things slow, might be the holidays but just takes for ever to send a message.
I am doing a battery pull and cache clear daily :(

the first outage only affected bis users. im a bes user, so i didnt evne know there was a first outage this week untill i read this post. just because it afects bis only doesnt mean its a full fledged outage. the second one affected all blackberry functions, so yeah i only experienced one outage.
