Nokia Lumia 625 Sim Card

[ Edited ]

Hi

 

bought my son a Nokia Lumia 625 for Christmas and took out 02 pay as you go account.  Would now like to transfer this to Giff Gaff.  His old phone was with you.

 

I have obtained a PAC code from O2 but think I will need to get a new Sim from you before I can start the portering procedure.

 

Not sure what I need to do now  ie what size of SIM card do I need, I think I might have a card from you when we first started with GiffGaff which we have never used.  If this is the right size can we use it?  

 

I'm not sure whether I use this card, get a new one from you do Sim swap or just fill out the portering form.  Any help would be appreciated.

Firstly can you remove the sim number from this post

 

If you have the PAC code then fill in this form
https://giffgaff.com/support/transfer

 

If you dont have the right size sim then you have two options

Order the correct size here

https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm

 

Then do a sim swap when  it arrives

You can also cut the existing sim to size if it is not a hybrid sim with the sim cutting tool

The Lumia 625 takes a microSIM. If you're lucky the gg SIM you have will have a popout microSIM. IF not just order one from your Spread Giffgaff page https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm

 

Then follow this guide http://giff.ly/keepnumber

Re: Nokia Lumia 625 Sim Card

Hi there and thanks for visiting the community.
To transfer your old number to giffgaff,firstly you will need to have a fully activated giffgaff sim card,and a PAC code from your old network provider.
You can then transfer your number to giffgaff,which is very easy to do.
Please be aware that your PAC code is valid for 30 days.

Simply click onto the link below and take a look at a great guide,cheers.

simply just fill out the transfer form,and thats it....
The sim card that you have,should be both standard size and also a micro sim card aswell.
Just check the middle of the sim card,and you should also see a push out micro sim card,in the middle.

Then you could always perform a sim swap.
When you perform a sim swap,ALL credit and any remaining goodybag/Gigabag allowance,along with your giffgaff phone number,is transfered to your NEW sim card,,,easy.

Do you have a spare ( un-activated ),giffgaff sim card ?.
If not,dont worry.

Simply order your correct sim card size,by clicking onto your,spread giffgaff,or click onto the link below.
