makarooney4 Hi there. SIM card activations can be done at any time, even at the weekend or during a public holiday.
Lost your giffgaff SIM card? If you have lost your giffgaff SIM card, you can replace it with a new SIM. This is what giffgaff call a 'SIM swap'. Performing a SIM Swap transfers your giffgaff mobile number and any top-up credit/goodybags over to the new SIM card.
Need a new SIM quickly? No worries… You can buy giffgaff SIM cards in many shops and newsagents, priced £ 1 or less. For example… Iceland, Heron Foods, Tesco, Asda, The Co-op, Sainsbury’s, Martin’s/McColl’s, One Stop, B&M, Home Bargains and many more shops sell them.
You can also order free giffgaff SIM cards online via giffgaff’s SIM order page. Delivery is usually within 2 working days to UK addresses.
When you have your new SIM card, please pop over to the SIM swap option within your profile settings to start the SIM swap procedure. IMPORTANT: Please make sure that you are logged into your account first or you’ll be creating a new giffgaff account.
