Why choose SIM-only vs. Contract?

We believe you should be in control of your mobile. That's why our SIM-only plans are designed to give you the flexibility and freedom to change your plans month to month.

We like to keep things simple and transparent. So we don't tie you down to those long term contracts.

Our plans offer you a better value for money then pay as you go rates with no hidden costs. Great, right? They are just bundles of UK data, minutes and texts, or just data to be used at your leisure, (excluding calls and texts to international and premium numbers, that is). 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 an unlocked phone and away you go.

Our plans include 4G data at no extra cost. Standard calls and texts are part of all our goodybag plans. These just come out of your goodybag allowance.

However, calls and texts to international and premium numbers are not included. And members will need top up to make those calls and texts.

Our data-only plans include 4G at no extra cost and only come with data. They do not work as bolt-ons for your goodybags.

Members will need to add top up credit if they need to make call and send texts. More info on our gigabags

You don't need a fancy 4G-ready phone to enjoy life with giffgaff. Members can use their current phone. They'll just be using 3G data service instead of 4G.

Don't worry if you use up all you data or minutes before your plan expires. You can start using your next goodybag early with a new allowance. Note: Any remaining allowance from you open plan will not be carried over.

If you've used up all your allowance before your plan expires, a rate of 2p per MB for data and standard rates for minutes and texts will apply. That’s if you choose not to purchase your next goodybag early.

Always On data comes with 6GB of UK data at full 4G speeds, then a data allowance at a reduced speed (256kbps) after the 6GB data runs out. Pure 'unlimited data' doesn't restrict your data speed at any point. Our Always On goodybag is designed to give members peace of mind that they'll be connected, which is why giffgaff doesn't offer any unlimited data plan. More on our Always On goodybag
We know members are big on data so we’re trialling an offer goodybag to see how popular it is. This £10 offer goodybag comes with more data and fewer minutes. More info

If you've set your plan to recur, then sit back and relax and let your next plan kick in. Simple.

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 to your account to enable recurring payments. Or you can just queue your next plan.

If you haven't got your next plan queued or set to recur, then standard pay as you go rates will apply. Members will need to top up to continue using the giffgaff service.

Great news. Tethering is permitted on all our plans that have a limited allowance.

Members can tether with the Always On goodybag for the first 6GB of data. After members have reached the 6GB limit, tethering will no longer be permitted.

With Always On you get 6GB of UK data at full 4G speeds. After that you’ll be able to enjoy data but at a reduced speed (256kbps) from 8am to midnight.

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 speeds. For more information about BlackBerry Internet service click here
