Fire at RIM shuts down Philippine BlackBerry service

Comments

FireBlackBerry users in the Philipines have reported a service outage due to a small fire at RIM. Smart Communications was the affected carrier, so we presume it was a fairly localized incident that won’t be hurting other services any time soon, but it still makes us a bit jumpy to think about what would happen if a more widespread physical danger were to come to RIM’s servers.

Smart said the problem was detected Wednesday morning. The company added that RIM’s technical personnel are currently working to re-route traffic and expects normal services soon. Another advisory said that Smart and RIM are testing a solution to bring the push e-mail service back online.
