if I don't use my sim can I activate it again

If I don't use my sim card for long and it gets dis-activated can I activate it again

Because I won't be using my sim untill my current contract expires that will be in 8months so my sim will be disactivated but I will still be reffering people to giffgaff so I will still be using my account

Once my contract is gone I will be using GG as my main line

You only need to show activity within 6 months to keep your sim active (receiving  a call or texts etc.

 

How long will my giffgaff SIM stay active for with no activity?

 

From the Terms & Conditions:

"10.1. If you do not make or receive a call or SMS at least once in any 6 month period your SIM Card will be disconnected and you will lose any remaining credits balance on your Account. If you wish to be re-connected after this time you will be given a new mobile phone number."

You must activate the sim within 6 months of the order date, otherwise just order another one.

Re: if I don't use my sim can I activate it again

after 6 months of no use whatsoever ur sim will go dormant + be unuseable... Best thing to do is make a chargeable call every 3 or 4 months to keep ur sim active on the network..hope this helps
