My phone was lost about 4 weeks ago and Giff Gaff had the phone locked. It was returned a few days later and i've asked giffgaff numerous times to unlock the handset because i need it for work. They will not do anything for me, is there anyone i can speak to over the phone to help me, please!.

I think that you can only contact an agent.
If you go to they should be able to help you further.
Please give kudos and mark as solution to anyone you think has helped you.

I'm surprised the agents won't do anything for you! See if an educator can help your case along.

Go here and keep clicking "Get me an Educator" until you find one who is online

You will have to contact an agent which you can do using the link on the left hand side of your My giffgaff page in the 'messages from agents' section, they may take up to 24 hours to reply.

make sure you are asking them to unblock the phone as unlock and unblock are different things
