As if RIM hasn't had enough problems on its hands, BlackBerry users across the world are reporting complete BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) outages. The issues seems to be isolated to Europe, including the UK and Ireland, and Africa, with hundreds of users reporting no email, BBM, and web connectivity. (The US saw a similar outage in September, but it was confined to just BBM service.) RIM 's UK team has confirmed the outage with a tweet stating that they are investigating the issue. We'll be keeping an ear to the ground on service restoration, but feel free to share your experiences in the comments below.
