Using my goodybag in the EU?
Sure thing. Enjoy using your goodybag allowance, data, minutes and text at no extra cost. The same goes for our pay as you go prices as well. Bring on the sunshine. More information on roaming
Using my goodybag in other countries?
You’ll need to add credit to your account to continue using data, minutes and texts. We’ll send you a little text when you arrive at your destination and let you know the roaming prices. More information on roaming
Can I keep my old phone number?
Sure thing. We’d love to bring your old number to giffgaff. After you’ve activated your SIM, we’ll give you a link to transfer your old number. You’ll just need your PAC code from your previous network.
What is Always On data?

With Always On data, you get 9 GB of data at full 4G speed. After 9 GB of data used you'll experience a reduced data speed of 384kbps from 8am to Midnight. You may notice that activities which require high amounts of data, like HD video streaming, will be slower.

Roaming in the EU and selected destinations with Always On means that after you’ve used the full 9 GB of data, you’ll be charged 0.6p/MB while roaming.

Our Always On goodybag is designed to give members peace of mind that they'll always be connected. More on our Always On goodybag

What happens if I go over my allowance?

Used up all your data or minutes? Don't worry. The great thing about giffgaff is that we give you the option to start using your next plan. Just choose to start your plan early.

Note: Any remaining allowance from your existing plan will not be carried over. i.e., if you have 100 minutes left then this will not be carried over to your next plan.

If you’ve opted not to purchase your next plan early and you’ve used up your allowance before your next plan starts you’ll be charged at 2p/MB for data and standard calls and text rates will apply.

What happens when my plan ends?

If you've set your plan to recur, then sit back and relax. Your next plan will automatically kick in.

If you don't have your plan set to recur, don't worry. Go to My payment details to update your account settings. Add a credit/debit card or PayPal to your account to enable recurring payments.

If you haven't got your next plan queued or set to recur standard pay as you go rates will apply. You’ll need to add credit to continue using giffgaff.

Can I tether with my plan?
Absolutely. You can tether on all our plans now.
Is BlackBerry Service included?

BlackBerry Internet service is needed for 3G BlackBerry 7 devices (or earlier).

If you upgrade your phone to a 4G-ready device, then you'll need to switch off your BlackBerry service in My profile settings to access 4G data speed. For more information about BlackBerry Internet service click here.

Why SIM-only vs. contracts?

What is a SIM-only deal?

A SIM-only deal gives you an allowance of data, minutes and texts, all on one SIM card. You can change your plan each month. We don't tie you down. You're free to leave when you want, but we'd love it if you stay.

Our SIM-only plans are designed to give you the flexibility and freedom to change your plan month to month.

Why SIM-only vs. contracts?

By George, two years is a long time. We think contracts are a little outdated like black and white movies. That’s why we have SIM-only deals, where you (our members) are in control of your mobile.

Our SIM-only plans are designed to give you the flexibility and freedom to change your plan month to month.

They offer you better value for money, then pay as you go rates with no hidden costs. Packed with UK data, minutes and texts to be used at your leisure. Our SIM-only plans are created for those who already have an unlocked phone and want to keep using it. Just pop a giffgaff SIM into your phone and away you go.

Which SIM size do I need?

There are three SIM sizes to choose from. Standard SIM, micro SIM and nano SIM. Most newer phones take a nano SIM, while the majority of older phones take a micro SIM. Some non-smartphones do still take a Standard SIM though. Our brilliantly-designed triple SIM means that it will fit any phone, whether you need a standard, micro or nano SIM.

Can I get a 4G SIM-only plan?

Absolutely. Our new goodybags include 4G data as standard. Get in. Choose the goodybag with the best mix of UK data, minutes and texts to suit you. A 4G ready phone and coverage is required to access 4G data speeds
