I was able to send & receive text messages and phone calls... But was unable to receive email or run any apps that involved the web...
Some blogs are blaming the outage on air travel delays... ??? Not sure if I buy that.
Other blogs report that the company doesn't know what is causing the problems...
Various blog coverage:
"This afternoon our tip box was overloaded with users who wanted to know why their BlackBerry Messenger wasn’t working. Then we received more tips that BlackBerry e-mail was down and this outage was also affecting web browsing so we knew something was wrong."
"RIM has explained they're aware of the outage and are working to fix it, but did not give a timetable. The front page of the Blackberry website has no message about the problem."
"[S]o far no word has come from RIM as to when the issue will be resolved. However the company confirmed on Tuesday night that some delays are occurring throughout the North and South America. ... It is said that the estimated time for a fix to come through could be anywhere from 3 hours to a day."
