I mean does the sim need to be used every 6 months, to get the GG points added on as credit?

  • You have a pending PAC (port out).

If a sim has not been used for a while does it get de-activated?

SIM Cards that have never been activated never expire, although after about 9 months the activation process witll take a little longer to conplete.

 

SIM cards that have been activated with expire of not used for 6 months. To keep your SIM active, all you have to do is one or more of the following once every 6 months:

 

  • Make a least one call, SMS or MMS to another number (for technical reasons, emergency calls (i.e. 999/112) and SMSes/calls to giffgaff services (i.e. 2020, 43430) do not apply)
  • Make at least one connection to the internet
  • Receive at least 4 calls of more than 10 seconds
  • Make a least one topup/purchase (credit or goodybag)
  • Receive Payback points (for recruiting new members or participating in the community)
