International calls and texts are not included as part of any goodybag. You therefore need to add airtime credit to pay for these calls/texts. Go here to add credit using a debit or credit card: https://giffgaff.com/buy/topup or here using a voucher: https://giffgaff.com/buy/redeem

Re: International texts

Have you made sure you have got airtime credit? Remember, a goodybag does not include international calls etc in its inclusive minutes/texts. Dial *100# to check you have airtime credit.

Re: International texts

Activate your giffgaff sim including topping up by at least £10.Make sure you have airtime credit on your account as goodybags only work within the UK and that you're also using the correct dialling code.

Re: International texts

The phone is unlikely to be the problem, but you could check any settings for call barring functions.

Anyway, is your credit ok? Dial *100# to confirm.

Can you call abroad, or is the problem just affecting texts? Are you ok with the dial code format?
