Internet not working on Blackberry Curve 8520

Hi all.

 

My phone is all set up and working fine with my goodbag at sending texts and making calls etc but the internet isnt working on the phone. Are there some settings I need to change to make it work? as my son mentioned that on his iPhone he had to change some settings for the net to work on his so I thought it might be the same with my Blackberry Curve 8520 as well.

 

Thanks,

 

Alan.

Re: Internet not working on Blackberry Curve 8520

**BLACKBERRY USERS PLEASE NOTE**
(BlackBerry standard browser and BlackBerry Appworld DO WORK on giffgaff)

*BLACKBERRY GOODYBAGS ARE SET TO START EARLY DECEMBER*

= FOR NOW:
Until early December, ONLY BBM wont work with giffgaff
Please use the following step-by-step guides to set up your BlackBerry services:
(to download some parts you'll need to use WIFI or another network sim WITH an internet connection)

= BLACKBERRY INTERNET & BLACKBERRY APP WORLD DOWNLOAD
http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/BLACKBERRY-BROWSER-amp-APP-WORLD-DOWNLOAD-L...

= BLACKBERRY MESSENGER
BBM will NOT work on giffgaff
BUT..
Its good to note, BBM costs on every network, but LIMITS YOU to ONLY being able to message people WITH a BlackBerry
There ARE alternatives that are clearly BETTER than BBM as they are cross network, so you can message your friends that are on iPhone, Android AND BlackBerry.. and of course, they're FREE!!!

Please see below:

Whatsapp
(a lot of smartphone users use this already)

Kik Messenger (NEW)
download for free here: http://m.kik.com
LiveProfile
(which has the same PIN type application as BBM)
PingChat
(some giffgaff staff use this one)

= BASIC APN SETTINGS
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password

SMS MESSAGE CENTRE:
options / SMS / service centre / +447802002606 / save

So, just follow the above to get your services up and running

BB isn't supported yet, so get Opera Mini over the wifi and you'll be good to go. BB support is coming early next month. Good luck!

No they won't
the gaffers blog said there will be an update after the 1st of Dec

 

http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Blog/News-about-our-launch-of-Blackberry/ba-p/2158369

 

We feel it would not be right to commit to an exact launch date yet as we want to make sure that the changes will do what they’re intended to, and so we’ll announce the exact date in a further update after 1st December.
