I'm looking to buy the s6 on pay monthly. I am an existing giffgaff member. Once I get my new sim how do I transfer my old number to my new sim?

Hi

Just perform a sim swap

It's relatively easy, and any funds on your account, ie goodybag or credit will also transfer over to the new sim

See here on a guide to sim swap

HI

once you get a new phone would also get a new sim

Order a new SIM of the right size from your Spread Giffgaff page https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm

and when it arrives do a SIM swap

If you already have a sim then do a sim swap here
http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Using-giffgaff/What-is-SIM-Swap/ta-p/7320084

you will then keep your current number, credits and/or goodybag. The swap should take no more than 30 minutes but sometime it takes 24 hours to become active..
