Yes a giffgaff SIM card can be used with any devices including mobile broadband dongles and box that is unlocked or locked to the O2 network.

However, you might need to configure the device with the correct APN/Data settings before you can use the mobile data on giffgaff.

@intheblim68  Yes, you can. Giffgaff SIMs work in devices that are unlocked or those that are locked to O2 UK. When using a giffgaff SIM, you will need to login to the web configuration / settings interface of your device and create a profile for giffgaff with the basic settings shown below.

 

  • Profile Name: giffgaff
  • APN: giffgaff.com
  • Username: giffgaff
  • Password: password (or leave this part blank if you can)
  • Access / Dial Up Number: *99#
  • Authentication Type / Method: CHAP
