BlackBerry Outage Affecting North America

BlackBerry users throughout North America experienced an outage that started last night and still may be affecting some users. Starting Tuesday evening, BlackBerry users started to complain of email delays. RIM confirmed “delays” Tuesday night, but couldn’t pinpoint a timeline for correcting the issues.

“Some BlackBerry customers in the Americas are experiencing delays in message delivery. Technical teams are actively working to resolve the issue for those impacted,” spokesperson Jamie Ernst said. “RIM apologizes for any inconvenience experienced by customers.”

In addition to email, BlackBerry Internet service was also down. Telephone service works, but data connectivity services were down.

This latest outage comes less than a week after a previous outage. How is it affecting you? Are you back online? Let us know in the comments.
