I’m really pleased to announce that from today you’ll be able to get Blackberry services on giffgaff.  You can now get a Blackberry add on to your goodybag for an additional £3, which will give you access to full Blackberry services, such as BBM. 


We’ve had lots of giffgaff members asking for us to provide Blackberry services both here on the Forum and in our Social networks, especially on our Facebook page. 


Unfortunately we had to delay the launch of Blackberry due to some service issues which impacted our core infrastructure however with fixes made (and being made), I’m happy to say that we are now in a position to push Blackberry live. For those giffgaffers who buy the Hokey Cokey goodybag, you’ll have a little longer to wait (sorry) as we are still working on adding the functionality to buy it with Hokey Cokey.


We had some handy giffgaffers helping with the testing of Blackberry so thank you to all of those who helped out.


So, that’s it, giffgaff meet Blackberry, Blackberry meet giffgaff.  Why not pass on the good news and let your friends who are on Blackberry know that giffgaff is up and running with BB.

I wouldnt recommend GG for Blackberry  1 they dont move to quick and you cant just add this to your plan.. Tarriffs should change at midnight and be active the next day. but never happens. Customer service is email based takes too long to deal with your problem. No call centre to help you with anything and people like to talk to someone. 


To add BB on any other network you just call them. 3 mins later with a battery pull out your all running with GG it could be 2 days or 3 days later before you get anywhere. So 3 days of your BB service as expired before you have got to use it. I might just knock this in the head and go back to Orange it was less trouble and if there was a problem a quick call sorted it out. 

Regards all

how long does it usually take?

good luck im sure within a few months you will be as Pi..ed off as me. no auto top up worked till now. when i dont need it to work cus i have £27 to come back to me. can only have one goody bag active at a time and cant add one in wait. They then turn you off and cancel all your service like clock work because you cant add your goodybag. And when you try and add one it says you need to top up .. I have balance dont want to add credit just need my goodybag and add another for next month they still havent replied to me and ive been without service all day... no customer care number to ring no one to yell at and no one to address the problem head on and have to wait upto 24hrs for a reply by email you cant get till you get home from work so another day without network services and a dead phone. !  Ive had enough ive been into carphone warehouse bought a new blackberry on 3 and now got no more getting cut off and stupid goodybags being cancelled or unable to add them   Giffgaff sucks !!
