Saudi Blackberry Blackout Only Lasted Four Hours?

Saudi Blackberries did indeed cease functioning today — for four hours. Then the handsets started working again. Some reports suggested the ban would start at midnight. There have also been reports that the Saudis and Research in Motion (RIM) were near some sort of deal.

I'm signing off for the weekend; may all your Blackberries continue to work.
