BlackBerry Messenger Faces Large-Scale Outage in Canada and Latin American

Posted by at 8:40 pm on September 16, 2011

BlackBerry owners on Friday were dealt a hugh blow after many reported losing access to Internet services. Both BlackBerry Messenger and e-mail faced outages, primarily in Canada and Latin American countries. RIM is still investigating as of Late Friday afternoon but didn’t have a cause or an estimated time for a fix.

The issue is one unique to RIM. As it centers all its BlackBerry Internet Service features through its own servers, any failures in those servers can affect many users no matter where they live or what e-mail accounts they’re using. Outages are rare, but they have in some cases affected every user.
