My phone was stolen and I wanted to know how to change my new giffgaff number to my old giffgaff number. I need a pac code but when I call 43431 it says sorry I'm leaving the network. How do I resolve this I just want my old number back!!!
You can disable and even wipe the phone if you have a Google account or Apple account,
If you can nip out you can buy a Blank GiffGaff sim-pac and do a Sim-Swap.This will be faster and better than reporting the phone stolen unless you need to for insurance purposes but may also be able to do this even after using Google/Apple sites.
I'm too impatient to wait for a free Sim so..
buy one for less than a pound at B&M/Poundshop/Tesco/Argos/Iceland and even my Corner shop sells them now and do a,"Sim Swap".Do NOT activate the New Sim e.g put any money on it
is as a Blank unused Sim is needed for a Sim swap and the Sim-Swap process will activate the new Sim.
A lot of these shops are open Sundays until 4pm and 8pm weekdays.
and here's an easy to follow video,
you can only do a SIM swap between 4.30am and 9.30pm and it can be like when you first join GiffGaff e.g shut the phone down for a few mins and or keep restarting the phone over a few hours after the Sim Swap.
This will transfer your number and allowances across.
