We have a huge range of new and pre-owned smartphones available at superb prices. All of them come unlocked and ready to go.

And the best thing, you can choose to pay for your new phone outright today with a credit/debit card, or spread the cost over 6 months to 2 years.

Do I have to have a plan with giffgaff?

If you're an existing member, you don't have to sign up for a plan to buy a phone from us. Just choose the phone you want and how you want to pay for it. Simple.

If you're new to giffgaff, you'll just need to sign up for a one-month goodybag plan (minimum value £10) when you buy your phone. You can then cancel that plan after the first month if you want to.

Spreading the cost

We've partnered with RateSetter, the UK's leading peer-to-peer lending platform, to offer our members the option to spread the cost of a new phone over time.

You can choose the amount you borrow and for how long (6 months to 2 years). You'll just need to make the initial payment with a credit/debit card on the day of the purchase.

As the monthly payment option is a sort of 'phone loan', you'll need to:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • have been living in the UK for at least 3 years
  • have a UK bank account
