Having issues with your signal is never fun but we can help you narrow in on the what is causing it. One of the first thing we need rule out is a known or reported mast issue in your area. In this article you will find the page where you can check the coverage and also what to do next depending on your result. Let's do it now Network status and coverage page After checking If there is a known issue in your area So, you've checked the service in your area, now what? Well, if it has displayed an issue with your area then you just have to sit tight. Mast problems get sorted by engineers, so they will go back to normal soon. If it displays poor signal in your area due to lack of masts then I'm afraid that there is nothing that can be done. If everything seems fine in your area If there are no issues displayed in your area then you should assume that it isn't a local area problem. Sometimes the tool takes a little while to update, but it's best to assume that it isn't related.    We prepared a guide to help you identify the signal issues to solve them, have a look here .

It may still be possible to track if your Wi-Fi is ON.

This article will guide you on how to setup auto top-up on your giffgaff account.   More Information How does auto top-up work? If you don't want to be troubled by topping up you can set up "auto top-up" to ensure you're not left running on empty.   You can set the amount you would like to be automatically topped up with when your balance drops below £3.   Every time you're auto topped up you'll receive a confirmation email, so you can keep track of your finances.   For auto top-ups you can set an amount (between £10 - £30) you’d like to be auto topped up by when your balance falls below £3 and also a monthly transaction limit (between 1-3). Once you reach your maximum, you won't be auto topped up again in that month (helps manage those pennies!) (e.g top-up amount equal to £10, with a maximum of 3 top-ups in one month – once you've auto top-upped £30 in the month and you drop below £3, you won't be auto topped up)   If you've exceeded the maximum number of auto top-ups an auto top-up won't be triggered and you’ll have to top-up your account online. Auto top-up is triggered by your account falling under £3. On the first of the month, if your account is already sitting under £3 an auto top-up won't be triggered.   How to setup auto top-up on your account For the purposes of this article were going to assume that you have no payment card registered and your balance is below £3.   Login to your giffgaff account Head on over to My giffgaff page Select My Payments Select Auto top-up     A banner will appear under the Auto top-up heading, select save your card details and you will be directed to enter your debit / credit card details (Shown below)   Enter your card details and select Save card details. You will then get a confirmation that your card details have been saved (shown below) Select Change next to Auto top-up. If your balance is below £3 you will need to top-up first. Select buy credit first (Shown above) Select how much airtime credit you would like to top-up (shown below) After selecting your top-up amount you will see the below screen, put a tick in the auto top-up box and then select how much you want to auto top-up each time your balance goes below £3 & how many times within the month you want this to happen then select Continue to confirm these settings.     You will then be asked to enter your security code (this 3 digit code can be found on the back of your payment card on the signature strip) & on the right you will see (as highlighted) that you have enabled auto top-up with your payment. After entering the required code please select Continue.     You will now see this screen (shown below) which confirms that your top-up was accepted & that you have successfully enabled Auto top-up.   If at any time you want to switch auto top-up off simply visit your My Payment section of your account and select change and then turn this feature off.     Handy Links Recurring goodybags guide

There are several reasons that can explain why you can't buy or start your goodybag just now. Please see the sections below to identify which one may relate to your situation:   More Information You still have minutes and data left in your active goodybag When you buy a goodybag, you can enjoy the calling, texting and data allowance during a period of one month. If you happen to use all your texts, calling minutes, or your data allowance, you may want to buy a new goodybag.   This is possible, provided that you have less than 50 minutes or 50MB left in your current goodybag. See here for the instructions to purchase a goodybag early.   You can then buy a new goodybag to replace your active goodybag.   If you try to buy a new goodybag while you still have more than 50 minutes or 50MB left, your goodybag will be queued but won't activate before the previous one expires.   If you don't want to purchase a new goodybag early, you can still text, call or use internet until your goodybag expires, for any allowance you have used up you will be charged at Pay As You Go rates for texts and calls; data will be charged at the special rate of 2p/MB until the goodybag expires.     It's just a few hours before your goodybag expires If it's after 9pm and your goodybag is expiring tonight or has already expired then the system 'locks out' all goodybag purchases until after midnight. The only top-up option available is to buy airtime credit.   You need to use airtime credit for calls and texts at PAYG rates and data at the rate of 2p/MB until the end of the lockout period, when the existing goodybag expires.   Think about turning off your data until you have bought the new goodybag as this will be charged at PAYG rate after midnight when your current goodybag has expired. To avoid this situation, you can choose to 'recur' your goodybag and it will seamlessly be renewed between 9pm - midnight on the expiry day. To find out how to recur your goodybag click here.   Or remember to queue your next goodybag at least a day or two before your goodybag is due to expire. To find out how to queue a goodybag click here.     You have set your goodybag to recur If you have recurring goodybags switched on then you can't manually buy a goodybag as the system will automatically apply your next goodybag when your current one expires. If you wish to manually buy your next goodybag (e.g. if you want a different goodybag) then switch off recurring goodybags first here.     You already have a queued goodybag. You can only have one queued goodybag so if you already have one (check on your dashboard) then you can't buy another one. If you want to change the goodybag you have queued then you need to use this guide to help you cancel your existing queued goodybag. NB you can't cancel a queued goodybag if it is due to start in the next 24 hours.   If none of the above circumstances applies then check the Service Updates: Notice board to see if this is a known issue or see if the helpful Community can help.   Please Note: It is always best to troubleshoot your issue on our Help & Support forum before contacting an agent. If after trying all of the above you are still unable to purchase a goodybag then it may be best to ask one of our agents to investigate this further. You can contact a member services agent here.     Handy Links   Airtime Credit - UK Prices Guide to queued goodybags Recurring goodybags guide

When a number is not used anymore, the SIM card is deactivated and the number is recycled. This article describes the different situations leading to a SIM card deactivation. More Information What are the reasons for deactivation? A SIM card is deactivated in the following situations:   You transferred your number to another provider (port out) The SIM card has been banned following fraud or abuse The SIM card is inactive. Note that a SIM card declared as lost or stolen is deactivated to prevent any illegitimate usage but its number is transferred immediately to a replacement SIM. For this reason, the information in this article does not apply to SIM cards that have been declared lost or stolen.     When is a SIM card considered inactive? A SIM card is deactivated when it has not been used in the last 6 months. To stop deactivation do any one of the following actions at least once every 6 months:   Make at least one call, SMS or MMS to another number * Make at least one connection to the Internet Make at least one Airtime Credit or goodybag purchase   * This does not including calls to Emergency Services or Member Services   These conditions are present to prevent the deactivation of members SIMs who have very little activity or who are active on the Community without using their SIM card much.   If your SIM card is disconnected, you will lose any remaining Airtime Credit and/or goodybag balances and also the phone number on your account. giffgaff recycles phone numbers and we will not be able to reconnect once your number is disconnected and recycled. giffgaff may reconnect you if any disconnection was due to our negligence.   For more information please see the terms & conditions on Cancellation Rights.     Is it possible to reactivate my SIM? Once a SIM card has been deactivated, it's not possible to reactivate it. Moreover, deactivating the SIM card returns the phone number associated with it to the pool of available phone numbers. It is therefore impossible to keep the phone number associated with a deactivated SIM.   When a SIM card is likely to be deactivated for inactivity, we will send a first communication one month before the deactivation of your SIM card. If there is still no activity with this SIM a second email is sent roughly 48 hours before to warn the member they only have a short time left to act. If none of the necessary actions to keep the SIM active are performed then the SIM deactivation procedure will be initiated.     Will my account be deactivated? When your SIM card is deactivated or you port out, it does not affect your giffgaff account so you can still be part of the Community. Your giffgaff account will act in the same way as it did before you activated a SIM.   If you activate a new SIM, you'll be able to register it with your existing giffgaff account during the activation process.     What will happen to my existing credit? Any credit available on your SIM card at the time of deactivation is lost, as per the Terms and Conditions. This credit is not refundable so we advise to use it before the deactivation of your SIM card.     What will happen to my payback points? As per the Terms and Conditions, accrued payback points are lost when the account becomes inactive, or when you port out.   If you don't hold an active SIM when the payback payment starts, you are not eligible to receive payback.     Handy Links Recycling mobile numbers @ giffgaff
