BlackBerry Messenger is back in Saudi Arabia

It seems that RIM and Saudi Arabia have reached an agreement in their BlackBerry ban dispute. RIM will place a server in Saudi Arabia, which will solve SA’s security issues.

The ban was supposed to start yesterday (Friday) midnight. The BB service was cutoff from ome people, but not all. My friend in Al-Dammam had her service cut, while my other friend in Jeddah had it on. I didn’t have the heart to tell the Damami friend that her luck sucked.

Anyways, alf mabrook for Saudis and elfal to UAE too.
