Massive North American Blackberry Outage

Blackberry smartphones are screwed up! There’s a massive outage going on in “the Americas” says RIM.

“This is an emergency notification regarding the current BlackBerry Infrastructure outage,” RIM support account manager Bryan Simpson said in an e-mail. The message said the outage affected enterprise clients and “users of the Americas network.”

RIM was not immediately available for comment and its e-mail gave no estimate on when service may be restored or how many individuals could be affected.

Rut-roh, Shaggy!
