Anyone visiting the country will also be blocked from using Blackberry's e-mail, messaging, and Web browsing services when the ban is scheduled to take effect October 11th. That would affect business travelers and others flying through the Mideast's busiest airport in Dubai. Since the UAE announced its ban yesterday, Saudi Arabia announced it would also block the use of Blackberry's messaging service.
