Blackberry...the wait is over.

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.




Well it would be fantastic but it won't let me buy a goodybag Smiley Sad


Got the blackberry add on but my internet and Facebook still don't work help?

great - but if my goodybag expiries on 10th of feb is thats means that still gotta waint 10 days?


nice 1 giffgaff, just got my daughter on giffgaff  for her blackberry   activated her sim   toped up with a £10 goody bag  and   sorted it, but i forgot to add  her blackberry  addon   there for she has to wait 1 month  so she is not best pleased with me at  the moment lol, as there   any chance  an agent  could add  this to her account ?


insane that, after such a long delay (6 motnh?), giffgaff wouldn't offer the bberry addon to those who are in the middle of a goodybag and therefore have to wait even longer....  


so happy! but how do we get it up and running? do i just buy and wait 24 hours?


Just one problem. It wont let me add this to my account now so still without it for another 28 days. Takes the micky and not auto apply every month like it should be. Auto top up but wont keep the service running till you decide you dont need it no more. IT will be on and off like a yo yo and if you miss a top up date and it auto tops up it wont add bb automatically so your stuffed till the following month like i am now.  Great.. Should go back to Three..I cant afford to be without the service. its either gonna go on and stay on or its not. ???

I was born right here

Well , the news of  BB going live is good for the BB owners , but  is that one of or " the " reason  / reasons  for the site crawling along at  " snail speed "  ? .


this news is great as i have recently bought a blackberry pearl but even with this giffgaff add on, i still can't access the basic internet or send & recieve mms messages.... any ideas as to why?


Well done GG. Will transfer the missus over now that BBM is available 👍
