Verizon Wireless today posted a confirmation via its official Twitter account about a nationwide BlackBerry BIS service outage. Phone Scoop was also able to independently confirm that BIS services are down. The outage affects all BIS users across all networks (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, et al.), which means BlackBerry users will be unable to send/receive email. According to Verizon, the problem should be fixed by Noon eastern time, though it persisted to be offline at the time of this posting.
