RIM Says BlackBerry Fully Restored

Updated from 6:50 a.m. EDT

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Research In Motion ( RIMM) said Thursday that BlackBerry service has been fully restored.

Earlier Thursday the company said it was seeing a "significant increase in service levels" for BlackBerry in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and said service levels were "progressing well" in the U.S., Canada and Latin America.

BlackBerry outages began Monday after a failure of a core switch in Europe and the subsequent malfunction of a back-up system.

Mike Lazaridis, RIM's co-CEO, said the backlog of messages that had clogged systems since Monday had been cleared up.

RIM said compensation for affected customers "have not been our priority" as the investigates the global disruptions, but it would soon address the issue.
