Re: my internet wont work on my o2 blackberry curve 8520

Unfortunately, Blackberrys are not fully supported by the giffgaff network as yet. Calls and texts will work fine, but the internet won't. This is because giffgaff have not yet implemented their own Blackberry internet Services (BIS) server. Therefore, applications which require BIS such as Blackberry Messenger, Blackberry Browser and Blackberry Mail will not work on giffgaff.

However, there are a few work-arounds to this issue so you can still use a Blackberry on giffgaff. To learn them, see http://bit.ly/giffgaffingablackberry or http://bit.ly/giffgaffingablackberry2
Giffgaff have said “it is in the pipeline for later this year/early next year. The much anticipated backberry serice is one service all you BB lovers cannot wait to have!!” More info here http://bit.ly/NewestProductUpdate .

Re: my internet wont work on my o2 blackberry curve 8520

*BLACKBERRY USERS PLEASE NOTE*

The BB Browser, App World and BBM will NOT automatically work on 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.

While you wait for the BBM to work, you should use one of the alternatives:
PingChat
Whatsapp
LiveProfile (which uses the same PIN type application as BBM)
..and there's more that i'm not too sure on

Its also good to note, BBM COSTS, and LIMITS YOU to only messaging people WITH a BlackBerry..
While the alternatives are CROSS network, so you can message people on iPhone, Android AND BlackBerry.. AND OF COURSE, THEY'RE FREE!!!

Giffgaff do plan to implement full BlackBerry services in the Autumn but no exact date as yet
..updates on the BB situation found here: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Blog/bg-p/giffgaff

Anyway, welcome to giffgaff, great network, cheap prices and helpful people :smileywink: haha
