Activation is usually done within 30 minutes but can sometimes take up to 24 hours. Once you see your number on your my gifgaff page here: http://giffgaff.com/dashboard You should be good to go.

When did you start the activation? 

 

The sim usually takes about 30 minutes to activate but it can take up to 24 hours. You can tell if it's activated by looking at your My giffgaff page. If your phone number is displayed, your sim is activated.

How long Ricky?

 

SIMs can take up to a full 24 hours to activate but are normally much quicker.

 

If it has been longer than 24 hours you should contact an agent by going to www.giffgaff.com/support/ask.

 

be aware though that agents can take 24 hours to respond.

Hi, If you have just activated your sim or added a goodybag in normal circumstances the top-up or activation takes to show, In most case it is applied within minutes. and takes less than 30 mins in some cases up to 24hrs dependent on system problems, and also make sure you phone is compitable first, it must be on o2 or UNLOCKED.

 

just check your (My Giffgaff page) under your balance/goodybag and your number will be shown there on the left of the same page, (you must be logged in) https://giffgaff.com/dashboard

 

also you can check your balance from your phone.

 

Dial *100# to check your credit balance. Dial *100*7# to check your goodybag balance.

I have the same issue, I can make and receive calls, check my ballence but I can't go to the my account page. Been activating over 12 hours. I want to get my number transferred via pac but have to wait I guess.
