BlackBerrys Work Through Quake in Boon to RIM- Bloomberg
To quote Argon, BlackBerrys are just glorified pagers. Well, yeah, and good at it, too.
I had to communicate with someone today on business at the time of the quake. Couldn't make a successful call after several tries, but luckily he had a BlackBerry and we used BBM. Ditto the wife who wanted to make sure I was ok.
