Does anyone knows the name of the charity for the choice of the refund for the recent issue of data?

Giffgaff are in discussion with 1 charity but I don't believe it will be announced until next week.
I also believe the last date of registration is to be delayed.

I thought they may have announced it when we were sent the email with link to choose our option. I’m all for giving to charity and I’m sure the amount we get as a goodwill gesture is a minimum amount per person, but I’d have liked to have known in advance what charity I was choosing to donate to.

I think it would encourage people to donate it to charity if they knew which one it was

You were entitled to compensation for the day that you lost - about 71p at the most.

The fact that you needed to buy a satnav is hardly gg's responsibility. They do not guarantee 100% service at any time.

Also a satnav has other benefits. With the new 6 point penalty for use of a mobile while driving I would not want to risk using a mobile satnav, as you never know if you might find yourself being issued with a ticket, whether justified or not. You wouldn't be able to prove that you weren't touching the device if it came to it.

I'm sure some of the cost can also be recouped via needing to pay giffgaff for a reduced amount of data in the future, as you can now use the dedicated satnav.

as a former barrister it would take less than 5 minuets to have the case thrown out of court.
