That's interesting. If it's already got a goodybag on it will it have a username and stuff assigned?
Still it seems a bit pointless to be honest as you can just order a sim card and top up as you're registering, no?

@mcilwraith

Been trying help one on here today and in past Argos £10  but on activation they need topup they would appear not to be preloaded as Argos say to buyer , 

store insist they are but they won’t work ,

argos state they don’t give voucher with them 

 

also international sims for £1  all sims are same talk about misleading 

 

glad you bought this up need clarification

So if they don't come pre loaded then basically Argos are selling giffgaff sims for £10, surely that's not right? If it is you're going to be raging coming on here and finding you can get the same sim free!

@jokeyboi77

Yes you can imagine anger we had today from one , problem is as far as members are concerned they blame giffgaff , 

 

My hubby tells me tesco did same thing last year but the way the sims are packed suggests on envelope they are preloaded when it’s only an example , 

 

i hope they they are not preloaded and know one has told us but unlikly as without voucher they won’t activate

Argos are missing a trick here, because since they're just selling you an idea, and not a pre loaded sim, they might aswell sell the Always On idea for £20 and rinse as much as they can out it!

I feel staff may not be aware they should give appropriate voucher with sim ,
Lot staff at Argos are now agency staff so may barcode sim and charge and not know about voucher ,

Thing is are £15 packs sent out as a rule by giffgaff do they exist if not. Are they made specially for Argos if so are they preloaded or need voucher with them from Argos ,
Confused ?I am now never seen £15 example on sim packs
