Data only SIM card for 3G netbook

I have a Samsung 3G ready nebook and would like to buy a Data only goodybag, so I can use mobile broadband. I already have a GiffGaff SIM account for my Mobile Phone. How do I go about getting a Data only sim card?  I have a spare GiffGaff SIM card, but when I tried to buy a goodybag for DATA only it said I have to have £10 credit on the card and I don't want to use the SIM card for phoning people, I just want a Data only card for my netbook.  Can anyone help?Thanks.

You have to buy the data bag with your credit I think.

Have you topped up the sim card? You need to purchase the gigabag with credit on account, the spare sim card would have to be activated for use via new account.

All giffgaff sim cards are the same, you need to buy a gigabag. Can you not just top-up £10 and buy two £5 gigabags; one active and one queued.

Re: Data only SIM card for 3G netbook

So all I have to do is add credit to the card? and then buy a Data only Goddybag?  How do I add credit without having to buy a Phone Plan goody bag?  Thanks for your help

@aaabzx3 what has this got to do with micro sims?

@jem, just top up £10 on the sim, and then you can buy a gigabag and the sim becomes a data sim.

You need to set up a differnt user name/account - can't have 2 sims on one account
