My blackberry isn’t working, is yours?  According to concerned calls to our support center, a slew of gibing tweets, and Yahoo news, blackberry users are experiencing service outages all over the world today. BlackBerry’s transmission problems are now pandemic. Having already hit subscribers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and parts of Asia early this week, it’s now hitting home: the US.

Friends, co-workers, and clients have all confirmed the breadth of problems with Blackberry services today. The reported issues range from delays or inability to receive emails to difficulties with web browsing.

Even without a functioning BlackBerry, I was able to get this message: if you rely heavily on your device to complete your day-to-day tasks and activities, make sure you have a backup plan or access to a computer until Research In Motion gets back in motion.
