If you reported your SIM lost or stolen you will have to wait for a replacement SIM. You can't use any others because your account is on hold.

If you did not report it but just ordered a new SIM then you could use any giffgaff SIM you have that fits your phone and do a SIM swap.

Delivery times vary. Usually it's 3-5 days but sometimes they take longer.

Hi Colin.

If you need a sim quick, look around for people offering to post one first class. There are lots out there.

Sorry, no longer posting sim cards.

if you had reported your sim lost or damaged you will have to wait for the replacement to be delivered usually arrives within a week ,, you cannot use any other sims so you will have to wait

Thanks for the info on delivery.

I got the impression from the automated email asking me? How well did we do, and your sim is in the post, that it was arriving today.
But why cant I use any other sims ?.

Thats what I have been doing when abroad.

Using local sim.

Thanks Col
