Allow us to purchase SIMs with more contacts

It's great that giffgaff offers free SIMs - but only having 100 contacts is a bit of a pain. Could we not be able to order (perhaps pay a small fee) for SIMs with more contacts - either as an upgrade or on first requesting a SIM from giffgaff?

 

I'd happily pay 50p-£1 for a SIM with more contacts.

As we can see from the comments, and no kudos gotten, this idea is not suitable, simply because people do not use the sim any more these days to store their contacts. Hence there is no need to increase the capacity on the sim.

Hi, new to giffgaff - just adding my support to the larger capacity sim card debate. I know you can sync to the cloud or to your phone, but I've always preferred the option to save to sim card , then you can take your contacts with you if for whatever reason you have to switch to a new handset, such as in an emergency. Would happily pay a token amount for a larger capacity sim. Thanks

Welcome to giffgaff, but sorry mate this idea is over 2 years old and was marked as follows..

I think this has limited use, especially with smartphones now being able to transfer contacts from one phone to a new one in various way.

Yes I do think as well it would be a good idea to have a bigger memory on the sim. Yes save have it on the phone memory but what happens when you have a dead phone???? Bigger memory on sim!! Take sim out and put in new phone.

i agree with this

 

this is very useful as a backup - not everyone can back up to their pc, and not everyone wants to back up their contacts to google

 

it's also very useful when you are changing phones, of if you do switch phones a lot - ie, if you travel a lot.

 

i'd be happy to pay a bit to have some storage
