Hi @smallyies YES, it is possible for him to transfer his vodafone number onto his giffgaff activated sim. Smiley Happy All he needs to do is click here: https://giffgaff.com/support/transfer to initiate the tarnsfer.  However, any credit on his Vodafone will NOT be transferred over onto giffgaff, or onto any other network for that matter. All credit on the Vodafone sim will be lost if eh chooses to transfer his number over before using the credit. I hope this helps! Smiley Happy

This will depend if his Vodafone account is still active.if so he can obtain a package code from them and then go to his Giffgaff dashboard and keep my number. Enter the code in the box and on the next page the number you wish to keep.you will then be given a date for the changeover, usually 3 working days ahead, and on that day the phone will lose service,at which time the handset can be rebooted.
