How long the SIM activation process usually takes? I have activated my giffgaff SIM yesterday evening and now it's more than 11 hours and still shows "Activation In Progress". Is anyone facing the same problem? Smiley Sad

Hi sorry to hear this but Unfortunately Giff Gaff are having few issues at the moment..with Delayed goodybags,
top ups and activations so give it a few hour and try again.

Hope this helps and you get it sorted... Have a great Day Smiley Happy

Hey there,

It can take up to 24 hours and the coupled with some delays may result in a little longer being needed.

Have a great evening and welcome to giffgaff!

It can take between 24-48 hours to activate anytime after that contact an agent because there's a fault or a glitch somewhere. But most cases SIM cards activate straight away or could minutes later.
