I have just put a gifgaf sim in my desire hd. Followed instructions and all seemed good as I got reception within a few minutes. But when I try to make a call it just won't connect.
When I call my gifgaf phone it says that its engaged.
Any help much appreciated!!

Have you checked your settings?

Text SETTINGS to 2020. Give some time for the system to process your account too. Smiley Happy

Hi afcno9, can you look at your My giffgaff (top) and can you see a live goodybag/credit balance and a phone number? You also get a message on that page to say if the sim is activated. If not, it is possible that the sim has not fully activated yet, on occasions activations can take up to 24 hours.

If you've activated and transferred your old number to Giffgaff just recently, it could take up to 24 hrs.
