Hi 

I’ve got a new sim and want to know the number before I top up- I can’t seem to find  it anywhere, can anyone help. The sim is for my daughter we already have 3 giffgaff phones in the house and I’m sure we could see the numbers on activation previously, thanks

Sorry the SIMs shipped by giffgaff are inactive and will not have a number already defined. Your mobile number will only be allocated once the activation of the SIM is completed with a £10 minimum top up or if you buy a goodybag (£5 minimum) directly using a credit/debit card.

Check out this https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Getting-started/Activating-your-new-SIM/ta-p/3521635 link on activating the SIM card.

Once the SIM is fully activated your new allocated number that can be found on your "My Giffgaff" page here
http://www.giffgaff.com/dashboard Or you can text the word NUMBER to 2020 and you will receive a text back with your giffgaff mobile number.

You can only see the number once you have fully activated and added credit/goodybag

 

Text NUMBER to 2020 to see it once complete

Good Afternoon @almke36

You need to activate the sim with a minimum or £10 airtime credit or a goodybag, you will the be allocated a randomly selected number. you can then find this number by texting NUMBER to 2020.
