RIM fixes network outage
Research in Motion has fixed the network outage that left users unable to use their BlackBerrys.
The outage happened earlier today, affecting Vodafone customers in the UK. The system failure also affected consumers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.The manufacturer did not say what caused it or how many customers were affected. A spokesperson said in a statement: 'Our apologies to any customers impacted by the BlackBerry service issue today. We can confirm that services have been restored and are now operating normally.'
The outage was not as bad as the system failure last October, that left more than 10m customers unable to use their BlackBerry devices for several days.
