The blame for it seems to be a bug that was found on Research In Motion’s server in Slough, England and has had its effect in impairing all users of those mentioned areas, independent of carrier or device.
RIM has not issued a statement on the matter. Though a T-Mobile UK representative updated Twitter with this comment, “There is an issue with BlackBerry services at present. RIM [is] investigating this at present.”
Though interestingly, Batelco, a wireless carrier in Bahrain, issued a statement that confirmed service was out in the entire country, yet explained that the issue is being “dealt with by BlackBerry providers in Canada.”
Hopefully things get situated soon, since for more than one area to be without service can’t be good, especially with no indication of when it will be back.
