Anyway to get around this? Friend brought me a SIM card, haven’t used it in the UK and am in Greece till September. Can I get my goodybag to work again or do I now need to go get a local SIM card?

Good evening my friend, sorry yes time is up by what you have said, best bet is get a local sim or use air credit with the giffgaff sim, it's upto you.

Thanks for the advice! It’s just super annoying cause I use the 4G data on my PC as I don’t have access to WiFi, so paying out of bundle rates is going to be really quite expensive and I really like the way giffgaff works with such easy top ups. Trying to work with any service in Greece is a bit of a nightmare but I guess I’ll have to go that route. Once again thank you

No way around this I am afraid due to EU regulations.


Every new giffgaff SIM gets 14 days 'inclusive' roaming after which the SIM must be used in the UK for a qualifying period before any further period of EU Roaming (itself limited to 62 days in any 120 day period) is started.

I donate 100% of my SIM activation payback to charity, please help me boost the donation
