It’s great to be able to use phone abroad but I am retired and spend 3 months in Spain in winter. Shame you can only use it for 60 days with your goody bag. It would be better in my opinion if it was 60 days that it didn’t have to be consecutive days. It will work fine for working people I agree because they wouldn’t be away over 60 days at a time.

We drive our motorhome abroad regularly, and often for more than 60 days. The 60 day restriction means that bvuying a 12 month sim from the 3 network seems a much better bet.

I'm currently within a Vodafone contract and will be moving to Giffgaff come November, this is when that contract expires. I'd like to leave sooner but they charge for it and I don't want to fork out £70. Would you consider making a contribution to that payment so I can leave them earlier and transfer my number over too? Some energy providers like Bulb do this to gain loyalty for new customers

We keep our boat in France and sail most of the summer, with occasional visits back to the UK the 60 days in 120 is a problem. My use is mostly in UK. If the fair use policy was just based on usage averaged over a rolling period then I would be fine. This is a common problem for retired people who like to travel.

Love it! I'll be taking my Giffgaff number with me to Germany to road test this 'Roam like home' idea. Well done Gg. Please please look at extending further afield.

I agree with gypsymu my daughter lives in Italy and I visit 2 or 3 times a year. Can I only use roaming once?
