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 bought a goodybag the other day so i thought i will buy another today and the blackberry add on with it does this mean i wont get the bb services until my next goodybag is active?

I contacted an agent as you suggested, they cancelled the GB I had already bought (which hadn't started...) and refunded the money to my balance. Now bought GB and BB. Nice ring to it.

The respone was very fast, so I suspect these queries are being prioritised.

Hey, 

 

For the people asking if its going to take 24 hour, craig has said in further back in this blog. That it should very similar to goodybag on a normal day. That means it should be almost instant Smiley Happy 

 

Thanks Smiley Wink
