Useful Network Shortcodes

We thought you might like to know some fancy network shortcodes used by giffgaff. Before using them, make sure you really want those changes.

To use these shortcodes, dial them from your phone like you would with a normal phone number. They're free to use, but note that call forwarding will deduct from your credit, if you're not using a goodybag.
