Hello @marlene54 & welcome to the giffgaff Community

The iPhone 5s takes a nano size SIM, if you current have one then you can go ahead and pop it in, if not you can Simply order another SIM from your spread page see here

When the SIM arrives you will need to perform a SIM swap please see this guide on how to perform a SIM swap.

Carrying out the SIM swap will transfer your current number, airtime credit and/or bundle (goodybag,gigabag) over to new SIM.

The SIM swap should take no more than 30 minutes to complete and can be performed any time between 4.30am and 9.30pm.
