  @mandimo  Hi welcome to giffgaff and the community

 Giffgaff doesn’t support business use and you will only be given a randomly selected number even if you changed which you are allowed to do twice please follow the guidance below You can port  in the number if it is already with a different network but if not you only have two changes with gigaff 

 

• Members can change their number twice

 

(A third time requires you to ask a agent )

 

•This service is only available between hours of 4.30am and 9.30 pm here ⬇️

 

Profile Details

 

• One thing to keep in mind is that you will have to wait 24 hours before attempting to make a second change to your number.

• Also here is a guide if you are receiving nuisance calls ⬇️

@mandimo

No, you're not able to select numbers, you're allocated one at random from the pool of numbers that giffgaff have in the tank.

If you require an easy to remember number, then your best bet is to buy one, and port it over to your giffgaff SIM/account. It's a bit of a round-about method, but the only realistic option you have.

In closing, it's worth mentioning that giffgaff as a service isn't intended for business use, though it's no secret that members do use it as such.

I only stress this since if you do experience a loss of service on giffgaff, then they're not liable for any loss of business you incure should there's an outage.

@mandimo hi, unfortunately not, had Giffgaff supported business use then maybe this would've been an option
