Blackberry users in Egypt and in other parts of the world are facing problems with their services, but service providers say it's the manufacturers' fault.

Twitter accounts of the three major Egyptian mobile carriers have been flooded with complaints from disaffected users about the service outage.

"There is Blackberry outage, it's from RIM side (Blackberry Manufacturer), stay tuned with us till further updates," said the official Twitter account of operator Vodafone Egypt.

BB services seem to be down across several networks in Middle East as well as the rest of the world.

Mobile carriers in Bahrain, UAE, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have also announced the outage. T-mobile and Orange carriers in the United Kingdom are announcing disruptions in services too.

Users in Italy, Spain, South Africa, India have also reported outages.

Below the surface?
Hey guys! Wondering about whats REALLY going on with blackberry... http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2010/aug/06/blackberry-saudi-arabia Quite interesting that governments cant play "big brother" on BBM... its a secure line without prying eyes... whats up? Wonder if this BB 'collapse' was orchestrated by the UAE gov? .... ponder... surely a company as big as Blackberry with as many investors and money flying around would make sure things like this wont happen or will be restored quickly... maybe take a look below the surface...
