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 fresh new allowance. Note: Any remaining allowance from you open plan will not be carried over.
Should you use up all your allowance before your plan expires standard rates will apply. That’s if you choose not to purchase your next goodybag early.
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.
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.

This bit's important...
The cost of calling numbers starting 084, 087, 09 or 118 is made up of two parts: an 'Access Charge' and a 'Service Charge'. The Access Charge Is set by giffgaff and is 25p per minute (with a minimum 1 minute charge). The Service Charge is set by the company you are calling. These two parts are combined to give the total call cost. More info
Free to giffgaff:
You need to top up at least every 3 months to receive free giffgaff to giffgaff calls if you don't other UK rates will apply as above. The free giffgaff to giffgaff calls last for 60 minutes per call, so you need to hang up and re-dial if you want to keep talking, without being charged.
We also believe that a free number should be just that, so all 0800, 0808 & 0500 numbers really are free.
Unless otherwise stated, call prices include VAT, are quoted by the minute and are charged in one second increment after the first minute. A one minute minimum call charge applies unless otherwise stated. Calls to 055, 056, 070 and 076 numbers are charged in one minute increments.
Extent of United Kingdom:
The prices on this page apply within Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Different rates apply for calls, texts and MMS from the UK to Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and other international destinations. For those rates click here.
