Hi, I've recently barred my sim and orderred for a replacement sim, and giffgaff recently sent me an email thanking me for ordering a sim for a friend. Is that supposed to mean the same? And I heard there's a difference between a replacement sim and a new sim for a new user. I just want to make sure I'm not doing the wrong thing here.

 

Thanks!

Have you passed out your sim order link to friends? Perhaps someone ordered one. You're right though, a replacement sim is different from a new sim, but if your old sim has been barred you've done it the right way.

When you receive the replacement sim, it will be barred and you will also have to contact an agent to unbar it

Just use the code when the sim arrives. If the code is incorrect your sim wont activate.

Yes there is a difference between the replacement SIM and the one for a friend.

The email about the SIM for a friend is what you get when a SIM is ordered via your url link, or from banners at the bottom of posts. Giffgaff do send you a spare SIM just after you join.

When you activate the replacement SIM you won't have to top up. The SIM for a friend will ask for £10 to complete activation.

The security bar on the replacement SIM should lift when you activate. Sometimes this doesn't happen and you then have to contact an agent.

Hope this helps.

Rick.

Did you order your replacement sim by going to http://giffgaff.com/support/lost

If you did order your sim correctly when you go to giffgaff.com, your number won't be displayd
