Hi there @nclstar

Do you mean abroad  ?.
Unfortunately Blackberry services Wont work outside the EU,and even whilst using airtime credit.
This changed came into place on the 1st April 2015,see here http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Announcements/BlackBerry-Plans-Update/td-p/16063856

 

If your inside the EU , your giffgaff Sim Card is set to work automatically,  but goodybags/gigabags are ONLY for use in the UK, so you'll need to Top Up and add "Airtime credit" to your account, whilst either calling abroad or using giffgaff abroad.

To take a look at the international prices,click onto this link http://giffgaff.com/index/international

 

Please also check out this fantastic guide here http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Using-giffgaff/Using-your-mobile-abroad/ta-p/3522931

  

From the 1st of april 2015,the Blackberry Plan goodybag was removed ,and every member, Can now turn ON ,and turn OFF there BlackBerry Services see here https://giffgaff.com/profile/details

Hi @nclstar Smiley Happy

Turn Mobile Network 'ON' If It Is Not Already.

Also Please Input The Settings Below Manually, To Do This Go To Settings > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names Thanks.

From 01/04 all of your normal BIS functions like Email,BBM and Blackberry Maps for instance will continue to work in the EU and you will continue to get the free 10mb a day roaming allowance.

Once you stray out of the EU then no functions that need access to the Blackberry servers will work so that's just about all data related functions of your phone.

One possible workaround just to get you basic web access would be to install Opera Mini web browser and the giffgaff APN settings before you travel and you will be able to access the internet via Opera but you are going to be charged £5.00 per mb for the priviledge.
