hi i just signed up to a goodybag and got assigned a phone number.  if i don't continue with the monthly plan next month but use it again in the future, will the original phone number still be assigned to my sim?  or will a new number be assigned? 

 

also, do i have to renew the monthly goodybags before it ends in order to keep the original phone number assigned?

Hi @condythug

 

Welcome to giffgaff.

 

Your number remains with you even if you do not buy a monthly plan next month. Smiley Happy You simply revert to the standard PAYG tarrif and continue to use the same phone number.

 

Hope this helps.

The number is assigned to the SIM, if it is not used for 6 months it is re-allocated but, provided you use your phone at least once every 6months then you will keepthe number.

that number was given to you when you activated the sim. you keep that number or you can port an number to giffgaff from another network if you want. you don't need to buy a goodybag if you don't need one

Make at least one chargeable call or text every 6 months will keep the sim active. So if you wish to keep the sim active just make a text once in a while.

You have to make or receive calls or texts,  use data or top up, once every six months to keep a giffgaff sim/account alive.
