    In parts of the middle east, government officials are toying with the idea of blocking some features of the Blackberry smartphone, including Blackberry Messenger. They fear that the hard to crack, encrypted data transfer and communication application can be used as a cover for illegal activities. These governments are able to obtain these messages but there is no simple or fast way to do it, files must be decrypted which could take vast amounts of time. If these services are disrupted, users are told to use alternatives such as Gmail.
