Dont use Giffgaff in Morocco. it does not work
I have just spent 10 days in Morocco. had £22 of credit in the credit account (not goodybag) on my phone. This was zeroed from £22 to £0.00. I lost all the credit money for zero phone usage on any network.
My phone has worked fine in many other countries.Nothing on my phone set up has been altered since it successfully worked in the UK and other countries overseas.
When I arrived in Marrakesh; I attempted to send text from airport to UK giffgaff phone saying "I have arrived". But instantly got message failure. Same result when I tried another 4 times at different times.
Sat nav didnt work at all; any data apps and calls didnt work at all ever.
Whilst in Marrakesh I met several other UK Giffgaff phone holders; and another girl on O2- and nothing worked for any body.
Giffgaff lists Morocco as a country that one can roam in- but for whatever reason 'languages' of the networks- they are not compatible.
Another British man on a non Giffgaff UK network said he thought his phone was working.
I am not sure with it is network incompatibiity or whether there is a 'scam' at work whereby somehow someone may be taking off the credit.
Either way I have asked Giffgaff for a refund as the product purchased has not worked *at all*; and ws therfore not fit for purpose.
Next time I will buy a Moroccan sim from the airport.
I hope to go to the Lebanon in a few months. does anyoe know if Giffgaff phones will actually work there?
