BlackBerry services down for all.


As you may have noticed, BlackBerry services have not been available for many in the region for the past few hours. We have no idea when the service will be restored but RIM has acknowledged the problem. Here is the official statement from them:

We are working to resolve an issue currently impacting some BlackBerry subscribers in Europe, Middle East and Africa. We’re investigating, and we apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused whilst this is resolved.

From the statement, the issue looks like it is not only effecting the Middle East but Africa and Europe as well. Let us now if  you are affected. We will update this article when we hear anything.
