Hi smiley people!

Quick & easy one this I hope!...

 

Can I have a goody bag AND a giga bag at the SAME TIME?

 

If so, and I get a 500mb data giga bag, how does it tie up with the data allowance in my already reoccurring goody bag?

 

Thanks...

You can have both but you need a different account and user name for each.

Yes, quick and easy lol.

Only one goodybag or gigabag can be active at the same time in one account.

If you want both at the same time, you need two accounts. You can only have one active SIM per account. So you need to create a new account with a new SIM and username.

However, any other details can remain the same - card details, email etc.

Be careful with your choice of username so that you don't end up topping up the wrong accounts in future.

Well that's a bit narrow minded of giffgaff isn't it?

Why would they not want me to be able to use more data on my phone?

Doesn't make sense that they allow it for tablet users but 'penalise' phone users for having a phone???

Most disappointed!

"There are already unlimited data packages from phones"

 

Sure, but I thought the thing about giffgaff is that it's supposed to be cheaper and more flexible.

I'm not spending that sort of money monthly on something I hardly use, which is why I want to tailor it more to my usage.
Anyway, I got my answer, evein if I don't like it ;¬)

If it's something you hardly use and you have run out of data in your goodybag allowance you can still use data
You get a reduced rate of 2p per mb until your goodybag expires
All you have to do to get this rate is top up with credit

If you had not bought a goodybag you would be paying 20p for the first 20mb then 20p per mb after
