Wow, again? I just saw this on CNN. Yet another reason why I have a Palm Treo Smartphone instead of a Blackberry! Not that I dislike the BlackBerry, I brought one home and gave it a try before I exchanged it for my Treo. Having had a few Treo’s in the past I preferred to opt for what I was comfortable with. (BlackBerry out of service in North America – CNN.com). This is the second time that I can think of in recent months that BlackBerry Service has went down. I did a little digging around and found that this time the service outage was blamed on a server error.
NEW YORK (AP) — An outage has disconnected BlackBerry smart phones across North America. AT&T Inc. says the disruption Monday is affecting all wireless carriers. AT&T first learned about the problem at about 3:30 p.m. ET.
There’s no word on the cause or when the problem might be fixed. BlackBerry maker Research in Motion did not immediately return a phone call.
