I cannot get internet on my blackberrfy. I cannot find any advice which helps me. If I text 'Settings' to 2020 I do NOT get settings I get a message informing me of my balance. Can any one give me some simple easy steps please?

Giffgaff will start supporting Blackberrys properly around the new year (at last estimate). 

 

In the meantime, click the link below and have a look at the guide:

*BLACKBERRY USERS PLEASE NOTE*

The BB Browser, App World and BBM will NOT automatically work on giffgaff, you will need to download an alternative browser to work your internet (Opera Mini has been the best mobile browser for quite some time), the best way to do this is either via wifi, or by putting another network sim in your handset that HAS a current network connection.

While you wait for the BBM to work, you should use one of the alternatives:
PingChat
Whatsapp
LiveProfile (which uses the same PIN type application as BBM)
..and there's more that i'm not too sure on

Its also good to note, BBM COSTS, and LIMITS YOU to only messaging people WITH a BlackBerry..
While the alternatives are CROSS network, so you can message people on iPhone, Android AND BlackBerry.. AND OF COURSE, THEY'RE FREE!!!

Giffgaff do plan to implement full BlackBerry services in the Autumn but no exact date as yet
..updates on the BB situation found here: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Blog/bg-p/giffgaff

Anyway, welcome to giffgaff, great network, cheap prices and helpful people Smiley Wink haha
