@wd707  Hi Smiley Happy

are you coming to the uk 1st ?

if so you can get a sim and have it up and running within one hour after your arrival

so no need to have one sent over,

yes I'm coming to london. But I heard there is an issue if you buy the sim card and then travel to other countries? I will be in london for the first part of my trip but then the remaining part in other countries?

@wd707 giffgaff  will work for limited time span in the EU.

 

Is that where you are travelling to?

@wd707  You get 14 days use in EU, more when the sim is used in the UK.

@wd707 giffgaff say allow up to 24hrs to fully activate new sims. Admittedly, it is usually quicker than that.

Can be sent by giffgaff to your home; no charge. As you will be roaming the following info should be helpful.

 

 

One does need the correct APN/Data settings configured to access mobile data. The following guide contains settings for the most popular devices on the market https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Settings-for-your-device/Internet-and-MMS-settings-APN-guide/ta-p...1
