Just a run through of how to activate a sim, top up with a voucher and buy a goodybag with your mobile. I would advise using http://mini.opera.com version 4.2 . And bookmark all the links you see here in case you get lost or cant fimd them on the site. If you havnt yet got a user name go here http://giffgaff.com/auth/signup and go through the signing up process. Then click activate sim http://giffgaff.com/activate-sim put im your 6 didgit code in capital letters (the code is on the credit card sized sim holder not the sim itself so dont throw it away) click activate me amd fill in your personal details and click continue tn top up. Put your 16 didgit o2 or giffgaff voucher code in the box at the bottom of the page and click go. If the code as gone through itl say congratulations you made it. If you want to immidiately buy a goodybag click one of these links http://j.mp/5-texts http://j.mp/5-hokey http://j.mp/10-bag http://j.mp/15-bag http://j.mp/20-bag http://j.mp/25-bag click confirm on the next page itl say relax your payment as gone through

. If your buying a goodybag at a later date. You need to click the j.mp link then log in again. The order summary page will probably not show so you have to re click the j.mp link to bring it up. Then click confirm to buy

You now have a goodybag. The internet needs setting up and unbarring. Text the word SETTINGS to 2020 and save all the settings to your phone. To unblock the internet on your account click support http://support.giffgaff.com/app/home and click "here" where it says is your question related to your account. Highlight my giffgaff account in the drop down box and fill in the subject and qvestion boxes asking for the internet bar to be lifted . And finish submitting question

Even if you do have a pc and cred/debit card. It wouldnt be a bag idea to activate with your mobile and mini opera and a voucher anyway. Itl get you up and running. And theres been a few problems with activating with a card and even problems locating the top up box on the browser of the pc to put the voucher code in. Theres also been problems buying goodybags with a pc. It seems the confirm button will not work on certain browsers. Using the j.mp links with your mobile browser will get round that problem

Just to mention if you havnt used mini 4.2 before. Its best to switch mobile view on in the settings. That way navigation becomes easier and pages load quick

If you havnt got mini opera on your phone, you can use your default browser. Only drawback with that is using older or lower memory phones. The page is quite large and would take a long time to load, 30 or 40 seconds or even longer. An alternative is going via a mobilizer which loads the page a lot quicker here are the links via webxcope mobilizer http://j.mp/5texts2 http://j.mp/5hokey2 http://j.mp/10bag2 http://j.mp/15bag2 http://j.mp/20bag2 http://j.mp/25bag2 the quickest way of accessing them is put the link in your home page. You can usualy get there by a long click of the zero button on your phone. Same procedure as using mini opera. Thats to log in. The order summary page wont show so you must re click the j.mp link (long click of the zero button if you have the j.mp link on your home page) that will bring up the order summary page, then just click continue to buy. Just to repeat these links are for buying goodybags with airtime credit

These links work perfectly on my mobile and are something I will use over and over again, so yeah thanks Smiley Happy

 

I was just wondering if you'll be making a link for the £25 goodybag when it comes out?
