Hi, I have just successfully managed to put a new sim into my new phone transferring my old phone number, goody bag and credit.  Now I'd like to do the same with my daughters' phones.  Their phone numbers are registered onto my giffgaff account - how do I go about swapping sims for each phone transferring their old phone number & credit?  I can get onto my account on giffgaff, but where do I go from there?  Topping up the credit on their phones through my account is very straightforward but I'm not sure how to swap their sims...  Many thanks

Hi there Smiley Happy

I am slightly confused at this becasue your only able to have one sim per account.

You can top up another mobile from your account sure but you're only able to have one sim/number per account.

There must be another account knocking about with your daughters details/numbers etc

Thanks

each sim will have its own account whether its you who pays or not

you need to log in to the correct accounts to swap the sims

Many thanks for your reply - I'm sure you must be right with regards to only being able to have 1 sim/number per account. I will do some digging and find out the details for the other accounts.
