BlackBerry service still sluggish in UK

LONDON (AP) ? BlackBerry users in Britain have experienced problems with their smartphones for a second day after an unexplained glitch cut off Internet and messaging services for large numbers of users across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Research in Motion Ltd., which makes BlackBerry devices, said Tuesday morning that services are operating normally and the issue responsible for delays in subscriber services a day earlier had been resolved.

But BlackBerry’s popular messaging service was not fully operational in London, with multiple users reporting issues sending and receiving messages.

A spokeswoman for BlackBerry said she was not immediately able to comment.
