Have you just changed your phone?  There is network code but if you've been using your sim then it shouldn't be that.

 try 0000 and if that dont work 1234 if neither of those work it may be because the sim is incompatible with hanset xxx mariam

The giffgaff network pin is 5555 but I can't think of a reason why it should ask for it out of the blue.  You haven't changed any phone pins have you?

Take the sim out and clean it first, make sure the sim is seated properly and try it again. Then come back here.

Re: SIM network unlock PIN

What phone are you using, and what is the exact wording of the message you receive?

Before you try the entering  5555, do you have another phone you can test your sim in?
