GiffGaff runs on O2.
Most phones show giffgaff as the operator but 02 as the carrier. But if you've got an iPhone it will just say O2-UK.
and your phone must be on o2 or UNLOCKED.
Tesco phone's work, even thou they use o2 they might not work on GiffGaff,
as they can be double locked!
So you will need to contact them to get it unlocked fully.
if ok then here below
If you have just activated your sim or added a goodybag in normal circumstances the top-up or activation takes to show, In most case it is applied within minutes.
and takes less than 30 mins in some cases up to 24hrs dependent on system problems..
Activations can be submitted anytime but the process wont be completed between 10pm and around 6am.
Check your balance from your phone.
Dial *100# to check your credit balance.
Dial *100*7# to check your goodybag balance.
Dial *100*1# for your free giffgaff calls expiry date
