BB Add-on http://giffgaff.com/blackberry-add-on

                                                                                                     

 

BlackBerry Add-on

  

For £2.50 extra a month get this Add-on to access BlackBerry Services. If you have a BlackBerry 10 handset then you do not need this add-on.

 

Note: The BlackBerry Add-on is available combined with all goodybags but not gigabags.

 

 

 

To get the £2.50 BlackBerry add-on you first need to get a SIM card and activate it online. If you already have an active SIM card you can purchase the add-on from the top-up page in combination with a standard goodybag. If you already have a live goodybag with an BlackBerry add-on, you can purchase a second one making it start right after the current one expires.

 

Can I use a BlackBerry on giffgaff without buying the add-on? Yes, but you will only be able to use your BlackBerry for standard calls and texts and Internet, you will not be able to use any of the BIS services without the Add-on.

 

Will the BlackBerry Add-on work if I am abroad? Yes, however roaming on the BlackBerry Add-on will be restricted to 10MB per day.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 



( Extra Info: THE ADDON )

1, You must purchase the add on at the same time as a goodybag,

2, You cannot add it to an existing live goodybag, on it's own or with payg credit

3, You will have to wait until your present goodybag fully expires am affraid


4, If you dont have the addon then you Can / Need to download opera mobile browser > http://www.opera.com/mobile/download/versions/



5,
[ After The Purchase ]

Try taking your battery out for 1-2 minutes then replace and power it back on

Settings then should be applied for you automatically !

(Please be Aware) It could take 24 hours to register/activate with RIM

If your BB Add-on fails to activate within 24 hours and trying the above suggestions I made then I would advise you to contact a agent ASAP

Wifi can't be used for BBM / BIS as an active blackberry data plan is needed to enable it; which giffgaff don't provide.

Hi - thanks for your guide.

However, I'm having a problem with the settings.

I'm using a BB Pearl (8110), I think...

When I open the TCP settings, I do not see the two 'checkboxes' about "APN Enabled" and "APN Authorisation Enabled".

I've entered the details as you stated for:

APN: giffgaff.com

Username for APN: giffgaff

Password for APN: password

But I just get a message stating that I cannot connect to the internet, when I try to open the Browser.....

Am I doing something wrong?
