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'v just had a quick look at the Black Berry settings on the help page, and the advice does not seem to have changed. Still use Opera for browsing etc. Is there a new help page to set up a Black Berry?

newcomer

Excellent, unfortunately I still have about 3 weeks left on my current goodybag!

Thanks Oldyorkie but why do I have to play around with Opera? Will the BB browser now work without being on wireless?

newcomer

BB browser is just ****. That's the main reason I gave up on my BB. I try typing in fields when they are highlighted and it decides it wants to do page up or down, or go back a page.  Really wound me up.  If I were you I'd use Opera Smiley Happy
