BLAST has learned there was a complete outage of the popular Blackberry email-retrieving smart phone service Monday.

An AT&T spokesman told Fox News in Boston that the outage affects all phones and all carriers across the country.

Research in Motion said in a message to large corporate customers that a “critical severity outage” meant they would be unable to send or receive mail.

There is no word on the cause of the problem, which left users across North America without wireless email for about four hours.
