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.




Not a BB user myself, but I am happy that giffgaff has put the services in.

@sophielambert - good spot! We'll get that tweaked. It will be available with Hokey Cokey in future as plans go, but isn't right now.




i just brought a goodybag and the bb add on and i dont have services. how long do i have to wait for ma services to come on as im used to themn cuming on within 2 minutes of me activating them. 

Craig, is it instant access to bb services after topping up?
What are the settings, manual or 2020? Just so I can start promotion and helping Smiley Wink
Ummm I have already bought my goodybag for feb and Is lined up to start so does that mean I can't buy the blackberry thing or can I add it on when the new one starts?
Kao good point and can you queue blackberry services with goodybag? Smiley Tongue

@asus - access should be as quick as the actual bag and addon being bought and applied.


So - no 24 hour wait, I've been informed Smiley Happy

Are bb services instantly on? Or do we gotta configure,

I want to add one now is that possible?
