RIM’s BlackBerry woes continue today as it scrambles to recover from a service disruption that has gone on since Monday. The company says that “all services across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, as well as India, have been operating with significant improvement.”
The Wall Street Journal says that in Japan, where BlackBerry is carried by Docomo, domestic services are uninterrupted although users may have issues communicating with those in affected areas. The report cites a Docomo spokesperson as saying “RIM has told us that Japan isn’t among the regions where the outage has occurred.”
We reached out to RIM representatives this afternoon who referred us to the company’s service update page. So if you find yourself still having issues with BlackBerry services, stay tuned there or follow @BlackBerryHelp on Twitter.
We need our active users to re-send this message to everyone on your contact list in order to confirm our active users that use BlackBerry Messenger, if you do not send this message to all your BlackBerry Messenger contacts then your account will remain inactive with the consequence of losing all your contacts.
Yeah, that sounds pretty legit… Of course BlackBerry has confirmed that it did not originate from them.
And to top it all off, RIM has now been enshrined in as an NMA animation. An angelic Steve Jobs makes a guest appearance at the end, capitalizing on BlackBerry woes to switch customers to Apple’s new iPhone 4S.
