For the past three days Blackberry users around the world have experienced difficulty with BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), data and other functions. This morning they announced outages in North America too. Guess, you could say, it’s really bad timing for RIM. Poor RIM and their users.
Gladly for me, I switched to iPhone in early May. It was a tough decision to give up my BBM, but I did with the hopes that Apple Inc. will soon launch their own messenger app and with the new iOS, my wish will soon come true. 🙂
Good luck to all the BlackBerry users. Hope they restore their services before people start jumping to iPhone and Samsung.
