Hi sammiiebabes92

Is your phone locked to the EE network?

If so, you need to unlock your phone.

giffgaff runs on the o2 network. you will either need a o2 phone or an unlocked phone.

Here is a guide on activating your sim:

Unfortunately your device needs to be unlocked or on O2 to work with giffgaff.

EE are the worst network by a country mile when it comes to unlocking. It costs over £20 and will take at least 20 days to have your device unlocked. None of the websites that claim to offer an unlock for a tenner in an hour will work with EE unfortunately. Follow the link below for further advice.

Hi there and thanks for visiting the community.
For your device to work on giffgaff,then it needs to be unlocked or locked onto the o2 network.There are a number of ways that this can be achieved.

1) Contact your current service provider and they can unlock it for a small fee.

2) You can take your device to any phone shop or market and also have it unlocked on o2,again for a small fee.

3) There is an unlocking service for most devices and there are also many websites than can unlock your device for free.

Please find below 3 links that can help to unlock your device thankyou.
