Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-15243892Millions of Blackberry owners across Europe, the Middle East and Africa have been left without services following a server crash.
Owners of the smartphones were unable to browse the web, send email or instant messages.
The problem appears to have originated in a datacentre in Slough which handles Blackberry services for the affected regions.
Blackberry UK said it knew about the problem and was "investigating".
In a tweet sent around 14:42 BST, the company said: "Some users in EMEA are experiencing issues."
A subsequent statement said Blackberry was: "working to resolve an issue currently impacting some Blackberry subscribers in Europe Middle East and Africa."
It apologised for the inconvenience that the ongoing problem was causing its customers.
Earlier on 10 October mobile operators in the UK, Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar and other nations pointed the finger at Blackberry owner RIM when replying to tweets from customers complaining about the problems.
