While that T-Mobile advisory referred users to the RIM site, nothing appeared on RIM's Web site explaining the situation.
While the outage has affected BIS customers of Blackberry Internet Service, customers using BlackBerry devices connected to BlackBerry Enterprise Server inside of their companies may not have been affected.
An editor for the IDG News Service in Paris said his BlackBerry functioned fine on Monday. His device connects through a BES server located in the news service's Boston office, he said. However, that same editor said he lost BlackBerry email service after about 2 p.m. Tuesday Paris time (8 a.m. ET).
IDG News Service reporter Mikael Ricknas contributed to this story.
