texting downtown toronto problems (today)

Has anyone had any issues with text messaging today between 4:20pm and 5:30pm? 

I had non stop problems sending messages from my BB9900 during that time. 

-if it helps, I was by the ACC for the most part.

Yes on my torch 9860 i had the same issue as well but i was in Scarborough. IT was telling me the text was not able to be sent with a X red mark on the side.

I am thinking maybe they had a technical problem in which they fixed because now it works.

Ah!  Bastards haha. I kept getting the "x" and some other message about network failure. Hopefully it was a very temporary problem

Hopefully. I was really pissed because i was sending some important text messages to someone & yet he could not receive them. I was stuck emailing what i needed to tell him. BBM & everything else was working just fine. Just texting was down.

Well, whatever it was I hope they fixed it! Was very frustrated myself. My buddy was coming down from Kitchener and we were to meet up at the ACC! Fortunately no problems calling him, as texting did not work.

Well its' not just the texting, but internet also was down till this morning and then the TV or rogers on demand went down.

Was disappointed that they provided no notifcation yet fully aware of the situation or evena  web posting.

There appeared to be a temporary issue with BIS (and apparently texting, too).

 

All appears to be back to normal now.  🙂

Hello BillJ

It was both BIS and Rogers. They both had issues last night.

That is true. Everything seems to be back to normal now:)!
