Re: keep my number

First Look back of your sim it says 4Ggg Its ready already
Or
Order a new SIM from your
Spread Giffgaff page
https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm

 

and when it arrives do a SIM swap

 To swap over the account to the new sim

Re: keep my number

HI

you dont need a puk code for this
Order a new SIM of the right size from your Spread Giffgaff page https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm

and when it arrives do a SIM swap

If you already have a sim then do a sim swap here
http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Using-giffgaff/What-is-SIM-Swap/ta-p/7320084

you will then keep your current number, credits and/or goodybag. The swap should take no more than 30 minutes but sometime it takes 24 hours to become active..
