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.




Where is the *old* blackberry guide?

I wish to continue using my blackberry without the add-on.

Not "fully" working for me ... no BIS over internet with mobile network off and Blackberry addon + Goody Bag. No point in taking abroad an connecting to Wifi (even with daily 10mb data) or if I'm in a low coverage area and only have Wifi to connect to BBM etc .. 


Tried reading the GG guides, new phone software etc. Can someone please acknowledge the fact that BIS over Wifi does work on GG?
