Re: sim card not working

When did you activate the sim? It can sometimes take up to 24 hours for the sim to fully activate, your number will show on your my giffgaff page when it has completed.

Sounds like the sim has not been fully activated.

Re: sim card not working

Don't worry, you wont have lost the £10. Even if everything has gone wrong, you can still contact an agent. Wait to see if any changes after 24 hours
