Get your backup handsets ready people, unless everything goes perfectly there’s a good chance that BlackBerry service is going to be down when you wake up tomorrow morning. The outage is scheduled for 2:00am – 6:00am tomorrow morning but these things rarely go as planned. Highlights from the note:

Description: Database upgrade for all North American subscribers in the following locations: The Americas
