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.

@nkinney

 

see my earlier post in here re bb updated guides....you might find the solutin to your problem in there.

I'm not a bb user personally, so if you still have trouble getting your addon to work, then post a question in the help section for more advice.

Just checked the two links which @rong42 pointed out and can confirm they have been updated....

 

This FAQ Can I add the BlackBerry add-on to a gigabag? now shows...

 

The BlackBerry® add-on will not be available for any customers on the gigabag tariff (live or queued).

All other goodybags will work with this add-on as normal (Excludes Hokey Cokey).

 

And this FAQ Can I use my BlackBerry as a tethered modem on giffgaff? now shows....

 

This answer is no longer available
