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.




took soooo long, now BlackBerry is almost dead anyway!

Can you get bbm when you top £5 plus that £3 bbm add on????
That's brill now I can talk to my friends on bbm thanks ggSmiley Happy

So does this service only provide BBM or does it also provide web browsing using the BB browser, or do we still have to use Opera?


Horaaaaaaaaaaaay #Giffgaff have finally got the BB services up and running. Definately going to top up tomorrow just to use the services !!!!! 


Can you just buy the £3 add on and use it or must you buy it with a goodybag??????? someone answer my question
