Hi you can't use your giffgaff balance to buy apps on your phones app store unfortunately

Only with a few networks can you use "mobile billing" to buy apps /in app purchases

giffgaff do not support in app purchases

I do not work for giffgaff, so cannot check anything on your account. This is a public community - please do not post any personal info.

Sorry but giffgaff do not support this. Your balance can only be used for calls/texts/data.
