Hi I'm thinking of changing phones from iphone 4s to samsung s6 or 7. The PIN cards i think are different and i'll have to change from micro to nano.

1) can i transfer my contacts etc from apple to samsung phones;

2) what's the easiest way to change PINs with GiffGaff?

 

thanks

Hi @andrew_gibson

1) Yes you can use Samsung Smart switch that will allow you transfer content e.g Contacts, Photos, Videos etc from your iPhone to your Samsung device. See this https://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/app/smart-switch link.

2) TO change SIM sizes simply order another SIM from your spread page by following this link https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm .

SIMs now shipped by giffgaff Trio SIMs which is made up of a Standard , Micro and Nano. To form a Nano size sim simply push out the middle of the SIM see this picture http://s24.postimg.org/7t8vp0m5x/large.jpg

When the new SIM arrives perform a SIM swap. The SIM swap process will transfer your current number and allowances e.g. goodybag and/or airtime credit over to the new SIM. The process should take no more than 30 minutes to complete and can be performed anytime between 4.30am and 9.30pm

Order the sim from your account. The sim you'll receive will be flexible to be fit as per phone slot. All you need to do is do a sim swap to get the same number and any other services on your number. Rest you can take the back up of your old phone on the pc or lappy. So you can take all back on the new phone. Giffgaff PiN is 0000 by default. Im sorry if I'm wrong not sure which pin you're asking for.

@andrew_gibson

 

If the GG sim in your iPhone is fairly new, you may be able to simply push out the central portion - a nano sim.

 

As iPhones do not store contacts on the sim, the transfer needs to be via some form of cloud-based sync/storage account e.g. Google.
