This is for all BlackBerry users in the Emirates; service provider du has informed its customers that RIM will be conducting BlackBerry service maintenance tomorrow (November 14) and next week on Sunday (November 21) between 6 and 10am. The maintenance will be done for routine purposes, so be prepared for interruptions in e-mail service and possibly other BlackBerry services as well.

Below is the complete statement from du:

"We would like to inform our customers that RIM (BlackBerry) will be conducting a maintenance exercise between 6-10am on November 14 and November 21, 2010. This will interrupt BlackBerry email services - (send or receive messages using BlackBerry email account, view email attachments, activate email service, or request to see "more" text)."

These kinds of updates typically go quite smooth, so things should up and running before you realize it's down.
