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.

Hello, can someone please clarify what this means for BB owners who have been waiting for this but have in the meantime 'giffgaffed' their BB so they can use Opera etc  instead?  I changed my BB phone settings when I joined giffgaff according to the 'giffgaff your BB' article on this website.  Today I have bought a goodybag plus BB addon to start later this month but I do not understand if I now have to amend the BB phone settngs again so that I can use the BB services or not.  Thank you.

Yesssssss :heart:

I think I am in the same boat as alikz.  Hacked at the BB to get it working when I joined GG now I have a goodybag and BB addon and no internet and no access to BB Messenger.
what are the new settings?  I am getting kind of frustrated with constant pointers to 'GiffGaff your BB'  These settings DO NOT WORK as they were used to set the phone up for Voice and Text services and a work around for internet access using Opera.  I want to be able to use the services 'Au Natural' using my BB addon.

What do I need to do?

HELP ME!!!!!!
