    About once a day, I notice that I stop receiving mail (BES, T-Mob, 3.37). The icon at the bottom of the screen is fine, but when I tap it, it says "You are not connected to the Blackberry Service". It will not resume. I have to restart the phone to get it going again.

    On the p910a, I always saw the BB icon with a red circle/slash through it....seems like it just stops working on the p990i.

    It might correlate with sync'ing to the desktop, but I haven't specifically been watching it.

    hmmmm......

    Nothing to do with the sync'ing. Its just a BBC problem.

    Part of the headache when you get to "test" the waters of an overseas phone, along with unreleased software that wasnt designed for consumer use.

    I have the same thing happening to me. Maybe once or twice a week.

    I believe that is partially firmware related. The recent firmware has had tons of hicups including not logging calls correctly. In addition, the BB connect software fails to pause while you're on a voice call at times, therefore, becomes proned to early termination. In case you have not had to restart your phone daily any way, then this shouldn't hurt. The auto-restart for maintenance has plagued a lot of P990i owners. This hopefully should be fixed with the future firmware upgrades. Again, I don't think this has to do with syncing issues on the BB connect software + server side.

    It should also be mentioned that MMS and WiFi are also allowed to run at the same time as as BBC. Another great accomplishment.

    After sending the service book for my crackberry account to my phone, the BIS is running flawlessly with BES.

    I could almost cry.

    I'm late to this party so please excuse the question. I'll be getting my P990 in the coming days and would like to use BIS on T-Mo in the US. Anyone using it on their network yet? If so, how is it working? Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply, BF. Yes, I did read the guide but didn't see any mention of T-Mo in the US or your location hence the quest for clarification,,,

    Now I'm assuming you'd be in the US, correct?

    Thanks.

    I am technically in the US, UK, and Tokyo. I do have multiple sim accounts, but this particular one was done with the US T-MO one and it does work.

    Everything is ok on this Front m8. I just ran it a few times. Maybe it's an isolated issue.

    Now THIS is pure heaven!

    btw, L Bo for your issues maybe you could update your "Routing Tables"? I'm assuming BES should update your BWC software on the P990i, without the BIS interfering. Is this possible on the P990's BWC software?

    I believe my problem is the number of BIS accounts I currently have. I had 5, then cut it to 4, it worked for a minute, but now it still wont reconcile again. Even when I open the blackberry software on the phone, it moves VERY SLOW when I go to the list of accounts and does some very weird graphics like I've never seen on ANY of the P series.

    I'm convinced that there is a limit to how many BIS accounts you can have without sacrificing some parts of the service as a whole.
