every time my son tries to connect to the internet it comes up with a message 'unable to connect to the internet, please try again later, if the problem persists please contact your service provider'


we've had a giffgaff sim for just over a month i just bought a £10 goodybag which is unlimited texts and data and 250 mins.  do i need to buy the blackberry add on to enable him to use the internet or not?

follow below for the internet on
your blackberry
first of all use opera mini 6.5
then follows this:
you don't have a zip file manager
program such as winzip or winrar
to do it with,download 7zip,it's
fre and handles all zip files.
Once you unzip it you'll have a
folder with an "alx" and a "cod"
file in it.
Using the add/remove
applications function of BDM,click
"browse" and in the box that
opens navigate to and double
click the Opera "alx"file which
will then be added to the list of
programs to be installed.
Then click "next" then "finish"
and BDM will add Opera to your
Go to options-advanced options-
Tick the box for use APN enabled
and enter the following
Username giffgaff
Password password
Press menu or back and select
the option to save the settings
Opera should now work via 3G

Yes, you need to buy the £3 blackberry add-on to enable internet services on your blackberry device
