The cyberweb suggests that BlackBerry users across the globe continue to have problems with internet, email and data. The issue started on Monday, and though RIM reckoned it was resolved yesterday morning, Tuesday saw a second day of frowning BlackBerry users.
RIM has been typically vague about what has caused the problem, but the Canadian manufacturer has now issued a full statement to the guys at Pocket-lint.
"The messaging and browsing delays being experienced by BlackBerry users in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India, Brazil, Chile and Argentina were caused by a core switch failure within RIM’s infrastructure. Although the system is designed to failover to a back-up switch, the failover did not function as previously tested.
"As a result, a large backlog of data was generated and we are now working to clear that backlog and restore normal service as quickly as possible.
"We apologize for any inconvenience and we will continue to keep you informed."
Damn you, core switch failure and failover malfunction.
We’ll have more on this as it develops, peeps. If you have a BlackBerry, let us know how you’re getting on.
