Truthfully, I do not own a Blackberry, and do not want to ever own one. Recently, this has made my feeling stronger on Blackberry. Yesterday I heard of outages in Europe, now it is just about global.
“BlackBerry subscribers in the Americas may be experiencing intermittent service delays this morning,” Research in Motion, maker of BlackBerry smartphones, said in a statement. “We are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and we apologize to our customers for any inconvenience.
