    Hello everybody,

    This morning, "near" application says to me "This service is no longer available." (translation from the French message) while I tried to synchronize it.
    I don't think it is releated to the error "E-80558325" because 3 days ago, I was still able to use it.

    Am I the only one in this case?
    Did Sony kill this service? Or is it an issue only for hacked PS Vitas?

    Thank you for your help!

    Wouldn't be surprised if Sony did kill it off.
    I wasn't using it anymore, prevention of data to be sent to Sony.
    Think the cause of the banwave was also due to Near

    Sony began to end support for Near in April 2015. First they deactivated maps and youtube, then the rest.

    That was like Sony's response to Streetpass wasn't it? Never worked for me since it gave me people in Ontario and i live in Québec
