Just joined giffgaff and already ported my number. However have found out that iPhone 5 requires nano sim (I currently have microsim). How do I sort this out? Thanks

Hi giffgaff do not distribute Nano SIMs directly Go here to order one
http://nanosim.giffgaffapps.com/
you can then do a Sim SWAP already on giffgaff: do this, you will be able to transfer your giffgaff account (including your phone number, credit and any existing bundles) from your old sim to your new sim. This is known as a 'SIM Swap' - for more details, please see here: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/How-to-use-SIM-Swap/td-p/6885194

 

Free sims are MICRO/standard and also now Nano too. you choose which one you need.

Order a nano sim

http://nanosim.giffgaffapps.com/

Then perform a sim swap

Click here and log in

https://j.mp/swapsim

Put the 6 didgit code in from your new sim

On the next page it'll show the 6 didgit activation codes and sim serial numbers of your current and new sim cards

Click where it says...

"Yes I want to replace my SIM"
( on mobile browsers don't forget to scroll down to see)

On the next page click "yes I'm sure"

Your new sim will hopefully be active within 30 minutes
And your old sim will be disabled
( if the new sim dosnt appear active after 30 minutes try turning the phone off and on)

You can get your nano sim from here - http://iphone5sim.giffgaffapps.com/

You can replace your existing sim so you'll keep your number, it should take about an hour to swap over, then your current micro Sim will deactivate and leave you with the nano sim for your iPhone 5 Smiley Happy
