We've had various reports in that BBM for BlackBerry 10 users is suffering a service interruption over in the Asia Pacific area. It now turns out that legacy BlackBerry smartphones are suffering too. In the CrackBerry forums one user has stated that there is maintenance happening which will be resolved in a few hours - however we are not currently able to confirm this.

For us BlackBerry users this sucks as we are so reliant on BBM for communication. It would appear that the countries facing the issue are Indonesia, Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, India, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia.

Is there more we don't yet know about? Are you affected?

Please let us know in the comments and also when things are back up and running.
