Did you buy a bb bolt on WITH a goodybag?

If you want the full blackberry experience (BBM, BB Browser, BB Mail, MMS)  you need the £3 add on which must be bought at  the same time as the goodybag
 
See the guide at http://bit.ly/giffgaffblackberry specifically the Legacy section that explains  alternatives such as Opera Mini or workarounds so you can browse the web with just the standard unlimited net

You need to input the APN settings, I've also got a blackberry curve 8520, if u go to options, then go to "TCP/IP"

Input the following:

APN: giffgaff.com

then enable the authetication

and input:

username for APN: giffgaff
password for APN: password

then save Smiley Happy

And it should work ^_^

See this guide on how to giffgaff a blackberry:
http://bit.ly/giffgaffblackberry


Go to home screen and select Options, then Device, then Advanced System Settings > TCP/IP

Enter the APN : giffgaff.com
user name: giffgaff
password: password
Press the BB Menu key and select Save


If You do not have the blackberry add-on, you can browse the Internet by downloading Opera Mini on to your phone:
http://j.mp/bboperamini

The most common way to use Internet and blackberry messenger is by buying a £3 blackberry add-on. This must be bought at the same time as your goodybag. If you do not have the blackberry add-on, then you must wait for your current goodybag to expire and make sure you buy the goodybag and add-on together next time.
