I want to keep my same giffgaff mobile number, but I think I cannot use my sim card (because I have no used it in over a year / I was in a foreign country).

How do i re-register with giffgaff to keep my same number?

you dont have a number will have been deactivated

you would need to activate another sim with another number

@dani11189 hello Smiley Happy


order a SIM and IF your account is till active perform a SIM swap


if your account has been destroyed, then you'll have to start a new account and new number

Because you haven't made a call or sent a text within 6 months you will have lost the number.

Hi Mazinodo!

Thanks for your quick reply.

Is there an option to order a NANO sim card?

How do I find out if my account has been destroyed? I don't think it is, as i just entered my giff gaff account with my name member and password which i had created 2 years ago.

Kind regards,
