BlackBerry jam hits thousands
TENS of thousands of BlackBerry owners here were among millions of customers in Europe cut off from the internet yesterday after a computer failure.
Customers were still able to make calls but were unable to get access to the internet or send emails, the main selling point of the BlackBerry. "Some users in EMEA are experiencing issues. We're investigating, and we apologise for any inconvenience," BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (RIM) tweeted.
The breakdown was caused by the failure of servers in the UK
Last night RIM said the service had been restored.
