Right now across Europe, Africa, and Asia, Blackberry customers have been left with no service for much of the business day, with carriers around the world all pointing the finger at RIM and their failing servers in Canada.

Reports indicate that some can still send e-mails, yet phone, BBM, and web access are still down. The timing couldn’t be any worse for RIM, with the iPhone 4S set to drop this Friday (October 14) and T-Mobile releasing their own onslaught of phones over the next few weeks.
