quickest way it a sim swap it takes 10 mins!
SIM Swap allows you to transfer your giffgaff number to a brand new SIM card (including existing goodybags and credits).
How does SIM Swap work?
SIM Swap is the operation of replacing your existing SIM with a new SIM card. Before you start, you need another SIM, which has never been activated. If you don't have an unactivated SIM at hand, you can order a new SIM of any size here.
Here is the method to perform a SIM Swap.
This is where SIM Swap starts. It will confirm that you want to swap SIMs. (You need to double check the serial numbers, just in case.)
5. After choosing "Yes" each time you are asked, your old SIM will be deactivated, and you will lose signal.
6. Put the new SIM in your phone, and it takes around to 10 minutes for the SIM to become active.
The best is to leave the phone turned off with the new SIM in for 10 minutes, then turning it on and off until you get signal.
7. You have completed SIM Swap! Enjoy.

Can I use SIM Swap to replace my lost / stolen SIM?
When you lose your SIM card, you'll want to find the quickest solution to have your number back and SIM Swap looks like the best road. It is possible only if you meet the two following conditions:
If you don't match these two conditions, you must order a replacement SIM through the Lost & Stolen procedure. As soon as you ordered a replacement SIM, you must not attempt to perform a SIM Swap.
If you try to perform a SIM Swap before receiving the replacement SIM, you will block the procedure and none of the SIM cards will work. In this case the procedure needs to be reactivated by the technical team, which will take longer than waiting for the replacement SIM to be delivered.
