Re: how do i set up my bbm

To use BBM you need to wait until later this year because giffgaff don't support it yet. They are working on it.

 

Meanwhile:

Re: how do i set up my bbm

AS A BLACKBERRY USER YOU SHOULD NOTE:
 
The BB browser, App World and your BBM will NOT automatically work with giffgaff, you will need to download an alternative browser to work your internet (Opera Mini has been the best mobile browser for quite some time), the best way to do this is either via wifi or by putting another network sim in your handset that has a current network connection.
 
Also while you wait for BBM to work you should use one of the alternatives;
PingChat,
Whatsapp,
LiveProfile (which has the same PIN type application)
..and there’s more that i’m not too sure on
These alternative messengers are cross network, so you can message people on iPhone, Android AND BlackBerry, plus they're FREE, while BBM costs, and limits you to only BlackBerry .
 
Giffgaff do plan to implement full BlackBerry services in the Autumn but no exact date as yet
..updates on the BB situation posted here: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Blog/bg-p/giffgaff
 
Anyway, welcome to giffgaff, great network, cheap prices and helpful people :smileywink: haha
 
BASIC SETTINGS:

Re: how do i set up my bbm

giffgaff does not fully support bbm and bbi yet you will need to use a different wap browser like opera mini for the internet and an app like whatapp instead of bbm see here
