Use the link below to report your SIM card as lost/stolen. giffgaff will then send you a replacement SIM card through the post that will have your same number along with any credit/goodybag on it.

Hi, Report your sim as lost/stolen here: http://giffgaff.com/support/lost

It typically takes 5 working days for your new replacement sim to arrive. The replacement sim will have the same number and any credit/remaining bag once activated. However goodybags are not suspended while you wait for the sim to arrive.

You can report your sim as lost/stolen
and you will be sent a replacement sim. The
replacement sim will have your same number and
account details. All giffgaff sims are now hybrid
and
dual sims which contain a micro sim that pops out.
It usually takes up to 5 working days for you to
receive the replacement sim.

Re: lost my phone can i keep my old number ?

You'll have to report it Lost/Replacement OR Damaged sim... Follow this link to proceed:

http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Help-Ask-the-community-got-stuck/How-do-I-report-my-phone-and-or-SI...

Please note, once you have reported your sim any of the above it is IMMEDIATELY barred. You will have to wait for your new sim to arrive in the post which is usually within 5 working days.

Any credit/goody bags you had on your old sim will be transferred so no need to worry there.

ALSO... All sims ordered are now dual sims (micro sims)

Good luck :-)

Report as lost and stolen. You will be sent a new sim linked to your existing account/phone number. You can't use any new sim to do this.

Re: lost my phone can i keep my old number ?

If you have had your phone stolen and/or lost your sim, you can get a replacement via the Lost process which is on this link

 

http://giffgaff.com/support/lost  

 

You can then bar your SIM and/or handset. 

A new replacement SIM will be sent to you. which will have the same number and any credit put on your account once activated

As far as phone insurance is concerned you need a proof of useage letter which you can get from an agent using this link

 

http://bit.ly/giffgaffagent

 

 

GG will  always get this information for you. However when they provide a proof of usage statement they need to have the below information: 

 

- Claim reference number

 

- E-mail address of the insurer/address

 

- Make and model of your handset

 

- IMEI number 

 

- The reason you are claiming i.e Stolen handset.
