The SIM only mobile network, giffgaff, now supports BlackBerry services. So, you can now use a BlackBerry device if you're on the network you can get BlackBerry Messenger, BlackBerry email and internet. Just like with all UK networks you will subscribe to a BlackBerry add-on which is paid on top of your goodybag, giffgaff's name for a tariff/plan. Where other networks charge £5 per month for the BlackBerry Internet Service, giffgaff charges £3, in keeping with their value for money business model.

One thing to keep in mind is that you must the BlackBerry add-on needs to be paid for at the same time as your goodybag each month. Unfortunately, this does mean that if you've already got a goodybag going this month, you will have to wait until next month before you can add the BlackBerry service onto your account. The BlackBerry add-on cannot be purchased if you haven't a goodybag either. You can add the BlackBerry service to your account the same way to purchase a goodybag.

For those of you that don't know, giffgaff is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) meaning that it does not have its own network infrastructure and so have arrangements with bigger network operators in order to provide its customers with a service. giffgaff runs on the O2 networks.

The BlackBerry add-on will be available to purchase starting from November 24th.

Don't your complaints! The article doesn't make it not unclear, stating: "The BlackBerry add-on cannot be purchased if you haven't a goodybag either."

So on each money, your goodybag at the same time you must the blackberry add-on needs to be paid. It's very simple.

You pay for what you get IMO
This sounds like a fair bit of hype, but actions will speak louder than words...

that's fantastic!!! I hope their roaming deal is as good as T-Mobile though! Unlimited world roaming for 15 quid a month is pretty fantastic.

I was on Giffgaff infact still got there sim card but that was early last year when peeps were asking them to get BB services so i got a different network sim card,its taken them a long time to achieve this .
Yes there rates are cheap in fact sms is about half price of other networks in the UK,and they were giving free internet aswell last year.Not sure what there rates are now!
Everything is done online so no call centres etc so they keep there costs down,if your on O2 network get a sim card and give them a try,
Me i will hang on a couple of months and then read up in there BB forum to suss out what there like BB wise
A Goodybag is what you buy eg Minutes and sms bundle eg, 250mins+500sms etc depending on £5,£10 £15 bundles. http://giffgaff.com/
