If you are a Blackberry user on most continents of planet Earth, you probably were hit by the lack of service today. You were not able to browse the internet, and access your email; right?
The news is that there was a major fault at RIM’s facilities. The outage did not affect enterprise service users; just BIS users only.
So, hang in there and don’t cuss out your network operator. Its not them. In the meantime, you can still make calls and do SMS as well.
