You phone is probably lock to Orange, you need to get it unlocked to use giffgaff.

 

Most networks lock ALL pay and go phones to prevent you moving, causing them a loss of money where the phone is subsidised

make sure your mobile phone is unlocked, or your sim could have a fault with it

It sounds like it needs unlocking, take it to a local phone shop, they will do it for a small fee Smiley Happy

Well phone is locked to orange becaus it says invalid sim .

Invalid sim = phone locked

No service = sim not active

Sim not provisioned = bars on account .
