International roaming outside the EU is set up by
default, you don't need to change anything.
However you will need credit available as
Goodybags are for uk use only. It is advisable to
switch off data roaming whilst outside the UK.
Making calls (including voicemail): £1/min
Receiving calls: £1/min
Sending texts: 30p
Receiving texts: Free
MMS (to UK): 16p
MMS (to non-UK): 24p
Data; £5.00/MB
This applies to any country outside

You will still be able to recieve phone calls and texts, just not make them. Also, you will still have your free giffgaff to giffgaff minutes+texts

 

Also, just so you know, there are some upcoming goodybag changes: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Blog/Upcoming-Goodybag-changes/ba-p/8283414

 

I hope this solved your problem. If it did, then press Accept Solution!

Hey,

 

Yes you will be able to recieve texts but won't be able to recieve calls (because you are charged for this ).

When you come back to the UK your sim should active Smiley Happy

 

If your back within 6 months Smiley Happy then it should be okay Smiley Happy or if you continue to use your phone with sim recieve a text within 6 month then it gets extended Smiley Happy

If you go abroad and you do not have any credit on your phone, you will still be able to receive texts for free, but will not be able to receive phone calls, as you will need credit for roaming charges.
Your phone will not stop working, but you need to make or recive at least one phone call or text or use data once in a 6 month period to keep your sim active.
