BlackBerry hit by network outage
BlackBerry users across Europe have been hit by a network outage, with some consumers unable to use their services.
The outage appears to be chiefly hitting Vodafone customers in the UK although anecdotal evidence on Twitter suggests BlackBerry users on other networks have also been hit. A spokesperson for BlackBerry told Mobile a technical team was investigating the outage, which is also affecting users in the Middle East and Africa. However, he refused to say what caused the outage, how many customers are affected and when the service will come back online. He said: 'Some users in Europe, Middle East & Africa are experiencing issues with their BlackBerry service. We are investigating and apologise for any inconvenience.'
Last October, BlackBerry customers were left angry after a service outage last October left millions of users unable to use their phones.
