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.

Hey Smiley Wink 

 

You will need to select a goodybag here - 

https://giffgaff.com/buy 

 

then scroll down and you will see 

  Get the BlackBerry Add-on

 

and under that you will see add to basket. 

 

Then if you want it out of your credit balance you tick the box -

where it say tick here to pay from your airtime balance

 

and then click continue Smiley Happy and then confirm and wala you have purchased the blackberry addon and a goodybag. You will have to purchase a goodybag and addon together Smiley Happy 

 

and if you have a current goodybag you carn't add the addon on to the goodybag that is currently active Smiley Sad but can queue it with goodybag for when your current one expires. e.g. 

 

you current one expires 04/02/2012. Your blackberry addon and goodybag should be active on 05/02/2012 Smiley Happy

and a blackberry addon lasts for only a month Smiley Wink 

 

Hope this helps Smiley Wink
