Hi, Hope someone can help - I'm new to Giff Gaff.  I have had my number transferred from Vodafone (although I haven't had a message from Agent) but my phone is now saying that the current sim (Giff Gaff) requires an unlock code?  I have tried to get one from Vodafone but they have transferred the number and say it should come from Giff Gaff?  I have activated my Giff Gaff sim and topped up, but I can't use my phone.  Help please

I used the above company to unlock our Sony xperia Mini. Cost me £5

 

I had to dowload some software onto my computer and attach cable to the phone. It then did something to the phone and hey presto GIFFGAFF sim worked in the phone.

 

It was much cheaper than paying 3 to unlock my mobile.

 

Your phone was on Vodafone so will need to be unlocked to use a giffgaff sim.

If your phone had been on o2 it would not have needed to be unlocked.

Similarly an Ovivio sim can go into alocked Vodaphone.

 

Getting your phone unlocked is a smple process either through the company that I used at the top or a shop in your local town or market stall.

We run on O2. Most phones show giffgaff as the operator but 02 as the carrier. But if you've got an iPhone it will just say O2-UK. and your PHONE must be on o2 or UNLOCKED

Try any of those two but it spunds like you may need your phone unlocking?
