My wife wants a smartphone for Christmas so I've decided to get a sim from GiffGaff, her usage will be very low (at least until she discovers the wonders of the phone). Could someone confirm that the conditions in 13.3 are all Or conditions so in essence if she uses it OR tops up at least every 6 months she will be OK?

@peterw52 To keep your SIM active, all you have to do is one or more of the following once every 6 months:
giffgaff have it covered - What's the best plan for me
Yes that is correct, as long as the phone is used I.e. 1 outgoing, or 4 incomming calls of more than 10 sec, or a top up, within the 6 months period then the sim will not be disconected.
I would add though, that it may well be worth getting at least the £5 (500mb) gigabag, for use with a smartphone, as data costs could easilly outstrip that on payg, with little use. (44mb in a day on payg would cost a fiver, thats not a lot of surfing, 20 web pages ish)
hope this helps
Order a sim from here & get a bonus £5 credit upon activation
Your wife could leave mobile data turned off (many smartphones automatically and by default connect whether you like it or not.) she could experiment with the internet on the phone using wifi if available and then go for a goodybag if she wants to progress while away from wifi.
