Hi everyone


As we all know giffgaff do not and wont be operating a call centre so heres my idea.


With the other providers theres a Customer Care number, 150, 789, 450, 2020 etc that gives you a few hundred options by pressing numbers and playing messages then eventually if you still need to be given the option to speak to a Customer Service Agent.


If giffgaff were to create rather than a Customer care line but a Advice Line on lets say 43431.


It could include a large selection of help matters similar to the request PAC code feature via 43430 but on a much larger scale with advice on all the major features of giffgaff so callers are able to hear the advice on the above Help pages rather than be forced to come to the website for the information.


Example, customer calls 43431 and heard something like.

Kudos this idea if you like it and giffgaff may look at it.



Hmm - you raise an interesting point. And if it really would be as little as £20/month to run, perhaps there is a place for it. Giffgaff could charge the standard rate for this service (i.e. a minute out of a goodybag/10p payg) to ensure it doesn't become a cost burden.

Marked as not suitable because the site and forum has better functionality and it would be unlikely to be considered a good substitute for those who miss a call centre.
