The Blackberry blackout is over, but many people are still catching up on delayed emails as users from the White House to Wall Street lost service on their handheld devices this week.
Research In Motion Ltd., the Canadian maker of the device, said they are looking into what caused the disruption that began Tuesday night and affected users in North America.
According to RIM execs, e-mail service for Blackberry users was "delayed or intermittent," but phone calls were not disrupted.
Blackberry currently has over 8 million users in the US, and they number is growing as more and more people become dependant on the mobile gadgets.
"I felt like my left arm had been amputated," said Joe Shoemaker, communications director for Assistant Senate Democratic Leader Dick Durbin of Illinois.
