The GiffGaff sim is sent automatically, therefore you buy a one off goody bag for that sim that comes with the new phone. You don't have to keep the sim, just pop your 02 sim into the new phone (as giffgaff phones are unlocked) but goody bags are worth every penny! I dont know what I'd do without my goody bag lol! Hope you get sorted! Smiley Happy

if you dont have an activated sim
you must buy the first goodybag.you cant cancel it
you can either just not activate the sim or use it for a month making sure recur is switched off.then use the phone with whatever sim you want

Hi @winniewoo02,

Hi no you do not need a goodybag and it's a set amount of data, minutes and text. The more you pay the better the package, £20 being pretty much unlimited everything
If your problem has been solved or partially solved kudos and like this post as it'll help others facing the same or a similar problem.

You need one if you do not have an active sim at the moment. Here are what the goodybags give you https://giffgaff.com/buy/sim-only-plans

 

You can cancel them at any time after purchasing the phone.

The price is split in to monthly for the handset. Goodbags are the minutes qnd data etc. Initially u need to get one. After the first month you dont need goodybags. Just pay for phone. If you want to make calls and use data etc u need to purchase a goodybad which is like a 30 day sim contract. Or u can top up money and use that.

Hi @winniewoo02 and welcome to the giffgaff community! Smiley Very Happy

Check here: https://giffgaff.com/goodybags
for information on these monthly packages and what they entail.

If you have an active SIM at the moment you will not have to purchase a goodybag with the phone purchase but you will if you don't have an active SIM.

Goodybags are not contracts so can be cancelled at any time or changed around at any time.

Cheers,

A goodybag is a monthly allowance.

This allowance is a bundle of minutes/texts/data

So currently for £10 you get:

500 minutes of calls
Unlimited texts
1GB data

Hi,

 

Before you procede any further, take a look here Credit & goodybag confusion   to see how airtime credit and goodybags work.

 

If you don't have an activated giffgaff SIM at the moment then check here http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Getting-started/Becoming-a-member/ta-p/10441077  for more information on becoming a member to enable your phone purchase.

 

If you're still not sure of any then just ask again.
