UAE Banning BlackBerry Services for Everyone
Even foreign visitors will be barred from certain BlackBerry services.

The Telecommunication Regulatory Authority said in an e-mailed response to questions from The Associated Press Monday that the ban on those BlackBerry services planned to take effect in October will be suspended for all users in the country, including visitors using roaming services on foreign smart phones.
That would put BlackBerry service out of reach for business travelers and others passing through the Mideast's busiest airport in the international business hub of Dubai, which averages about 100,000 passengers a day.
