I have bought a new Nokia phone from O2 together with an O2 top-up voucher and I have a new giffgaff sim card....can I use the O2 voucher to activate my new giffgaff sim card and then use without problem? Cheers all.
If you have not yet done so, you need to first register the sim on Giffgaff and then activate it. Use the 6 digit sim activation code that came with the sim to register it. You then need to go to the Top-up page and top-up Online using your voucher.
Once your payment has been complete, your sim will activate within 24 hours and you will be given a new number.
Enter the six character code and touch ". "continue " Look at the address bar to see either MGM(member gets member) or freedom. MGM will mean the sim had £5 free on it. Freesim means the sim is standard and no bonus. On this page you can pay by card or voucher(vouchers can be bought from shops displaying Pay Point etc banners). Follow steps to pay by card (the card has to be UK registered with a UK billing address ). If you use a voucher look carefully for where it says " if you have top up voucher ". Touch.
The next page is personal details. Enter or change as necessary. Then touch "continue ". This page gives a prompt for the 16 digit code on the voucher. Enter the 16 digits with no gaps then touch "redeem ". All done. The activation now starts. Full activation can take up to 24 hrs. but normally it's only 30 minutes.
