Millions of BlackBerry users may experience service delays this morning as Research in Motion’s network is experiencing problems.

The complications that have already affected other parts of the world are now causing problems in the U.S. Research in Motion, which makes the BlackBerry, released a statement on its web site stating the company is working to “resolve the situation as quickly as possible.”

The problems stem from a core switch failure within RIM’s infrastructure, the company said. The backup that is designed to kick-in also failed.

RIM said they are working to fix the problem as quickly as possible. The service issues began on Monday in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
