When someone says that port-in failures are 'rare', to me that conjours up images of it happening 'rarely'. Here's the Oxford English Dictionary definition of rare:
"not done, seen, happening, etc. very often"
My port in failed. My Mother's port-in is currently in a failed state and it's currently day 7. A quick scan of these forums shows several similar reported cases over a 24/48hr period, including, of course, this one. Speak to a certain lady who's spirits soars and she'll tell you of her woes...
It is true that more port-ins are successful than the ones that fail.......but please don't get this confused with port in failures being rare. They happen with regular monotony and you can hopefully appreciate how frustrating it is for those concerned.
For the record, I am a big giffgaff fan and you'll see my record is one of promotion of the service but I'm also not afraid to constructively discuss any shortcomings.

GG is getting some very well connected users at the moment, business executives, lawyers, high court barristers and now the families of news international employees. It must be a sign of something. Perhaps the op could get daddy to look in a few email accounts and let us know.

like ive said in my messages my dad works for the sun so i can easily get something posted. im holding back though but tbh i have already writen the article titled giff naff. im so annoyed
Do it then! Don't hold back... Go for it....
Personally I couldn't care less if you go the that bastian of journalism (haha) the Sun or not.
May I point out however that this is a public forum and your article would hardly be a relevation as anybody and eveybody can already take whatever time the like to peruse the issues GiffGaff have on these boards.
That said, I am sure it would make you feel better (and probably important!)... So go for it.
(Aren't there rules in place to stop journalists using their positions for personal adavantage though?)
Unlike other networks, GiffGaff's issues are in the public arena for all to see.
How many other networks are that brave?
Having said all that... Your experience with GiffGaff has so far been poor and should not have happened.
I hope you get this resolved soon... If not, go ahead with your threat... I may even buy a copy of the Sun to read your article lol.
What is the point of going off on a rant? i thought these forums were for people to help each other?

But to the member who said that all ports fail, not experienced that myself (I have 5 SIMS) or any of my recruits.
To the OP, hope you get it sorted, hopefully you will find it worthwhile . A word of advice - and I accept you are at the end of your tether - idle threats about papers/watchdog etc tend to do the opposite of what you hope. Advice from a wise old man.
