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.

I think you will need to purchase a goodybag £10 with £3 to achieve to get youtube...






What's the bb activation times? Is it instant access when inserting the SIM into the phone? Any registration needed?

My phone is registered once i bought the goodybag Smiley Very Happy

@darren - taking a look in to that for you.


There is a general BB email faq below (I know what you're asking for is different, so checking up).

There is this portal which was found last year however we were told it was developement only. So if you can confirm if this is now the live site then that would be great

Can we access bb services straight away after purchasing?
