in the last couple of years, there have been several large scale RIM outages.
The service bulletins are archived on RIM's site so it doesn't require a lot of trolling. The only two that have effected us in an annoying sort of way was the heavily broadcasted October 11, 2011, and the one in the summer that made it impossible to communicate with colleagues overseas.
We resorted to texting during those outages.
