UPDATE: Welcome to our readers from Money.AOL.com

Wow, this is something else. Blackberry users across the western hemisphere are rocking back and forth gently this morning. They have been suddenly weened from their addiction.

Customers on the BlackBerry Forums discussion board complained of having no service, while callers to the BlackBerry US technical support line were still greeted with the following message early Wednesday morning in the US: “We are currently experiencing a service interruption that is causing delays in sending or receiving messages. We apologise for the inconvenience and will provide updates as soon as they become available.”

New York television news channel NewsChannel4 reported on Tuesday night that the problem affected “all users in the Western hemisphere.”

I will be very interested as to how this will affect the stock for RIM who faces a very real challenge from Apple’s upcoming iPhone.

Myrcurial should be losing it right about now. Please try to keep your fingers away from the BB users in withdrawal. They may bite.
