Roaming is on by default on all giffgaff sim cards ..
But make sure your goodybags allowance can't be used abroad so make sure you have airtime credit at your disposal if you thinking to use your phone abroad...
...Many people get caught out because of data do make sure turn data roaming off ..+ ...switch off voicemail !
Please Dial 443 to access your voicemail
To Switch on: Dial 1616
To Switch off: Dial 1626

Many users have reported that Firefox browser seems to work without any hassle so give it a go .
If you logged in into multiple devices try to log out and try again .

It's could be account related problem as we don't have access to your account !
You'll need to contact an agent here: http://bit.ly/giffgaffagent

Firstly, unless you have a roaming bar on your SIM already, you will not have to ask an agent to lift it, as there is no roaming bar by default.
For the SIM you gave to your friend, your going to have to ask him to request an agent as this is totally out of our jurusdiction, as they would say. Alternatively, request another SIM and ask them to try activating the SIM again, as you will still get the points for giving them the SIM.
Have fun in France!
Here is a handy table of the roaming charges in France: (PS: YOu may want to top up a little extra before you go and turn off data on your phone avoid the costly DATA ROAMING CHARGES )
|Making calls and calling your voicemail (charged in per second increments after the first 30 seconds)||28p per minute|
|Receiving calls (charged in per second increments)||7p per minute|
|Sending texts||8p per text|
|Picture messages (MMS) to a UK mobile||16p per MMS|
|Picture messages (MMS) to any other mobile||24p per MMS|
69p per MB
Hope I helped!
