Help!  I am sure i must be missing the blindingly obvious but I cant find out what my giffgaff tel number is!  

This is what i have done

1/ Ordered Sim

2/ Received sim in funky envelope / letter

3/ Unlocked my phone to take sim

4/ Activated SIM online using 7 digit code on SIM card

5/ Inserted sim in phone

6/ Go to load £10 top / buy a 1/2 price goody bag.....

7/ Asked for Giffgaff Number??...dont know where to find it?
Cant ring phone ro other mobile to get it, as no credit

only number on SIM card is a 19 digit number
STUCK !!

 

Also IF i get it activated, can i buy the 1/2 Price Goody bag today?
the offer is still on the website, but there is no links to buy them...you would expect to be able to click the Goody bag you are interested in and go to a payment / order page, but nothing?

Thanks in anticpation

Cheers

Did you topup during activation? If not, you haven't completed activation. Go back to the Activate SIM link and follow through until asked to topup.
If you have already topped up, login to My giffgaff before going to the Topup page. You won't need your number to buy a goodybag.

 

Buying goodybags is done from the topup page. You can buy a maximum of two at half price today.

If you log in to My giffgaff, it should show it. Also, you don't need your mobile number to top up from my giffgaff.

 

If you can't log in to My giffgaff, or it doesn't show it, you need to wait a while, as you're not yet activated. You should be before tomorrow.

You will get a number once you activate your sim, do not worry - but this process of assigning you a number may take upto 24 hours after you activate.

 

And yes you can buy the goodybags at half price, but today is the last day! Smiley Happy (addition: the reason why you can't see the screen is because you haven't activated as yet)

thanks

 

The problem was that there was a delay with activating the code.

It therefore didn't take me to the next page to enter details, but neither did it come up with an error, so i thought i had "activated"

I have now done it, They say there is a delay of a few hours before i will be fully activated and will then get my number....phew

Thought i was going mad before....as it did say you need to "top up" to activate, but if you go the "top up" section, it asks for your Number...which i didnt have ...catch 22!

Hopefully all will be sorted in an hour or 2.

Thanks

Glad it's sorted. In many cases activation is complete within less than 30 mins but it can take longer (occasionally up to 24 hrs)

Log into my giffgaff this will show you number. if it does not, restart your phone. if this doesn't work, you need to wait, as your sim is not yet active.
If I have helped you, press the yellow 'kudos' button to the left (:
