Service fault hits BlackBerry users on Vodafone

Friday 11 January 2013 | 14:13 CET | News
Vodafone is aware that some of its customers with BlackBerry smartphones have been experiencing connection issues on 11 January, the operator told Bloomberg. It added that it was working closely with RIM to resolve the problems as soon as possible. Vodafone spokesman Simon Gordon would not comment on the service fault's geographic extent, but conceded that some other Europeans countries besides the UK seem to be affected. South African operator Vodacom's BlackBerry users also have experienced service faults, Bloomberg writes. A RIM spokeswoman in the UK would not comment immediately.
