Subscribers to Research In Motion's wireless paging network who have been experiencing service interruptions since late last week should see the problem cleared up by the end of the day, according to the company. The problem that caused the systemwide interruption has been fixed, but subscribers may still be experiencing trouble, a RIM (rimm
) technical support representative said Wednesday. The representative did not know the source of the problem.
A backlog of messages in the network has continued to cause the congestion. "Some customers may be more affected than others," the representative said. Some may not be receiving messages, while others can't send them.
