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.




Hi lisabullen,


You can buy any of the goodybags, with the blackberry Add-On, excluding any of the Data-Only Gigabags.

Hope that helps... Smiley Happy


how do you add blackberry add on to your phone?


I have a Blackberry 9800 torch and would like to know step by step how to set the settings for GiffGaff if any one can help me I would be eternaly greatful since this is a 2nd hand phone and I do not have any instructions. I am aware that we cannot get the settings sent to us via text like other companies but I find that GiffGaff is seriously great value for money and would not like to go elsewhere as I have over 20 plus friends on here BUT unfortunately they do not have a Blackberry. So could someone please help me. Thank you very much.
