Service outage lasted 3 hours

It's not a good time to be a Blackberry user today. The service was down for an extended period not long ago leaving users days without access to messaging and email. Reports are coming in that the network was down again for a short period last night.

RIM reported that some users were saying they were having issues connecting. The official response was "We're getting reports that some users are experiencing delays. We're investigating and will update you ASAP." There was no explanation for the service outage.

The Inquirer reports that three hours after the outage started the service was back up in the EMEIA region. It remains unclear what caused the recent four-day outage as well as this most recent outage. The fact that RIM has no idea what keeps happening is worse for some than knowing what the problem is.
