BlackBerry email down / delayed in North America (update)

Nilay Patel

Gonna be a long day for BlackBerry users: RIM's confirmed to multiple outlets that its BIS servers are acting up and that email services are being delayed -- and we're actually hearing that they're just down, period. BlackBerry Messenger still works, though, so you can still BBM your BFF or whatever the kids do nowadays. No word on service restoration, but we'll update you when we find out.

P.S.- That's two months in a row with significant BIS problems -- what's up with that, RIM?

Update: ... and we're back!
