Goodybags are bundles that last a calendar month made up of mins, texts and data they are value for money and work out better than airtime credit For more info and list of goody and giga bags available on giffgaff follow the link below
http://giffgaff.com/goodybags

In terms of the coverage it's very good as giffgaff runs on the O2 network the 3G I have no problems at all I have coverage all the time.

I get 3g all the time no problems at all with my internet, goodybags are not contracts. You basically buy a goodybag an use the allowances through the month ( very good value for money ) when the goodybag has expired you dont have to buy another one..

Have a look here http://status.o2.co.uk/ (pop your postcode in) to see what sort of a signal you'll get in your area.giffgaff run on o2.

3g is widely available (but might be a bit slow at times) and 4g should,hopefully,be available from the beginning of next month.

The majority of members use goodybags which aren't contracts.You can have a goodybag one month and then revert to PAYG (giffgaff is predominently a PAYG network) and then purchase another goodybag a month or two after your first one has expired,if you want to.

 

I'd suggest you order a new (correct sized) sim from an active member's banner and,when it arrives,activate it https://giffgaff.com/activate icluding topping up by at least £10/goodybag purchase.If you order a sim from an active member's banner,you'll receive £5 free airtime credit once activation has fully completed.Try giffgaff for a couple of months and then make your mind up.

giffgaff suits my needs, but it's not to everyone's taste (eg the lack of a call centre irks some)!

Check the expected signal strength where you are with the O2 coverage checker http://www.o2.co.uk/coveragechecker (as giffgaff runs on the O2 network)

goodybags are inclusive bundles of minutes, texts and internet which last for a month - not really contracts as you don't have to have them and you can leave any time.

See here for more on the tariffs http://www.giff.ly/ggdeals

Hi there, giffgaff is the best network IMHO'', we don't have a call centre, but lots of knowledgeable friends to help you, everything is done on lineSmiley Happy A unique thing of giffgaff's is "payback" where they pay you for helping out or just chatting on this forumSmiley Happy You are awarded points which mount up every month and paid out twice a year in June and DecemberSmiley Happy This is not the only reason we help but it is very handySmiley Wink So go on, give us a try, we don't biteSmiley Tongue

You have the answers now and all I can add is, give it a try. It would only cost the price of your goodybag for finding out. If you are happy, and I am sure you will be then you will stay. if you are not happy, it has only cost you a month's payment and no hassle as if you were leaving a contract which giffgaff don't operate. Go on give GG a go, you know it makes sense.
