Tragically, none of the updates I worked hard to send since this morning went through because I was using my BlackBerry to post updates! You'll notice that my Twitter has been on fire though.
The BlackBerry Internet Service outage entered its 3rd day for users in Europe, the Mid East, and Africa. As of yesterday, South America and parts of North America became affected. As of today, USA, Canada, Japan and Singapore became the latest to experience service interruptions.
Below is the Service Update page from RIM.Com. Keep it there for the latest.
BlackBerry subscribers in the Americas may be experiencing intermittent service delays this morning. We are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and we apologize to our customers for any inconvenience. We will provide a further update as soon as more information is available.

We know that many of you are still experiencing service problems. The resolution of this service issue is our Number One priority right now and we are working night and day to restore all BlackBerry services to normal levels. We will continue to keep this page updated.

The messaging and browsing delays that some of you are still experiencing were caused by a core switch failure within RIM’s infrastructure. Although the system is designed to failover to a back-up switch, the failover did not function as previously tested. As a result, a large backlog of data was generated and we are now working to clear that backlog and restore normal service as quickly as possible. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused to many of you and we will continue to keep you informed.
