Each SIM needs it's own account.

Email and payment details can be the same, if you wish.

 

Log out of your account:

https://giffgaff.com/auth/logout

 

Create a separate account for the additional SIM:

https://giffgaff.com/activate

Sorry @evansash  you cannot do that. It is strictly one SIM per account.

 

So, you will need to activate the other SIM under a new account but all contact and payment information can be the same as your original account.

Hi you can only have one sim per account so you will need another account and a different username but u can use the same card for payment .

Hi
You will need a second account if you want a second sim.

Good Afternoon @ evansash

Sorry but its not possible to have two sims on your account.

You will need to create a new account with a different membername for the second sim.
