Blackberry Storm IM Issues

I am having constant issues sending and receiving messages through the Blackberry messenger.  It shows they are delivered but the recipent is not receiving and vice versa.  Once in a while when I turn off my phone or take the battery out that will reset and it will work but not all the time.  Any recomendations?  Do I maybe need to download a newer IM version since this one is the 1st version?  I still have a few months left on my contract.

RIM is currently having issue with some data services. It is affecting customer's nationwide but it's limited to only a few customer's in some areas. So not everybody is affected, but it is specifically an issue with web browsing and Blackberry Messenger.


There's a few simple steps you can do as troubleshooting. Pull the battery for 30 seconds and reinsert, dial *228 and select option 1 to reprogram your phone and register your data services by clicking on your Options icon then going to > Advanced Options > Host Routing Table > hit your menu button then select "Register Now".


Beyond that thought we need to wait for RIM to fix it.


EDIT: Also, it is a good idea to always have the latest version of Blackberry messenger. You can download this by pointing your phone's browser to and following the instructions to download the latest version.
