giffgaff BlackBerry

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.
