I have the same problem and those links don't seem to be much help. Can someone post a straight forward answer explaining how to do this? I thought you needed a blackberry plan, as the bb curve that you have and I have is not 3g, so giffgaffs mobile internet will not work. And you had to wait until giffgaff create a blackberry server for its customers

Look above, requires you to use an older version of the bb computer software for 2 mins and then it is done.

Should do, I have done it on my phone successfully, have you followed the instructions word for word? You could follow the other guides and get opera mini working on your blackberrys if you want to try that.
