order a new SIM card here
when it arrives, you can do a SIM Swap. All your account details will transfer over to the new SIM in full within 30 minutes, including goodybag, number and credit. 

● Remember to back up your SIM contacts as these can not be transferred over during a SIM swap

To carry out a SIM swap, click this link and log in
● Enter in the 6 digit code from your new SIM
● On the next page it will show the 6 digit activation codes and SIM serial numbers of your current and new SIM cards

Click on where it says...
● "Yes I want to replace my SIM" (scroll down to see on mobile)
● On the next page click "yes I'm sure"
Your new SIM should be active within 30 minutes.Your old SIM will then be disabled.
You have now completed a SIM swap
You can find a full guide to this here

You'll need a sim adaptor. Order one here from eBay :

Hello @flash79 & welcome to the giffgaff Community

Simply order the correct size sim from your spread page see here

and when the sim arrives you will need to perform a sim swap see link below to guide

Carrying out the sim swap will transfer your current number, credits and/or goodybag over to new sim. The sim swap takes no more than 30 minutes to complete.

Order a new sim via any regular order sim link, even through your own spread giffgaff order link (, and then use sim swap ( to activate and transfer your account over to the the new sim.
Link to a guide on how to use sim swap

If you were to use the report lost & stolen link your account will be suspended until the replacement arrives and you activate it.

You can either perform a simswap - see here -

Alternatively you can get an adaptor where you put the nano sim into it, I believe

You can buy a s sleeve to put your nano sim in, less than £1 on eBay.

You just need to buy a sim adapter from eBay and it changes the nano sim into a micro sim. Then if you decide you prefer your iPhone you won't have to do another sim swap. Much easier option.
