BlackBerry needs to resolve Indian security concerns by September

Research in Motion is currently working to resolve the Indian government's concerns about the encryption on BlackBerry devices. The government has said BlackBerry email and instant messaging services will need to be shut down is no acceptable solution is reached by 31st August. It's reported that a concession with BlackBerry Messenger has already been reached between RIM and government officials.

But that's not the only mobile news story we've heard from India today. The Times of India is reporting that residents of Nagpur are hearing rumours about calls from certain telephone numbers that can kill mobile phone users. Perhaps unsurprisingly, there's no evidence to support these rumours.
