BlackBerry users in North and South America experienced an interruption in their services on December 22, making it impossible to communicate via BlackBerry Messenger and delaying email delivery. Phone calls and SMS features weren't disabled. RIM said in a statement today, "Root cause is currently under review, but based on preliminary analysis, it currently appears that the issue stemmed from a flaw in two recently released versions of BlackBerry Messenger (versions and that caused an unanticipated database issue within the BlackBerry infrastructure. RIM has taken corrective action to restore service. RIM continues to monitor its systems to maintain normal service levels and apologizes for any inconvenience to customer." This is the second time in five days that BlackBerry users have experienced service problems.
