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.

Lol cocked up once again.. You can't buy bbm unless u buy a package aswell, what about the people who have only just bought a goodybag? We have to wait a whole month to buy a new goodybag and bbm to get it activated.. This is ball**bleep**, why would you do that seriously

If i already have a live goodybag , can i not buy the blackberry add on now ?

newcomer
Nope.. It's stupid you'd think a bunch of nerdy geniuses have had long enough to think this through, clearly not

No you carn't purchase addon on top of a goodybag that is already active.

Does this mean we can get BBM now then? xx

well thats VERY annoying that i have to purchase another goodybag to be able to get the add on, considering i only purchased one 2 days ago. And i'm guessing once i purchase another goodybag (which wont come into effect until a months time, when the one i just bought runs out) I won't be able to use the add on until my other goodybag comes into use???
