Hi All giffgaff sims are enabled for use abroad. Remember goodybags and gigabags, and free giffgaff to giffgaff are for uk use only. You need credit in your account to use your phone abroad. You need to check that your network carrier is set to automatic in your phone settings. Then try restarting your phone. This will allow your phone to connect to O2's partner networks all over the world. I would also disable data roaming, and use wifi where possible, as data usage abroad is expensive, 17p per mb in the EU, and £5 per mb everywhere else. Also disable voicemail ( Dial 1626 )
You can also enable auto top up on your gg dashboard. If your balance drops below £3, you can set it to top up your credit by a set amount, this has to be done by entering a debit or credit card number.
See link below for a detailed guide for using giffgaff abroad.
Hi we recently came back from the Canary Islands, and I used my Giffgaff a lot whilst there and was surprised that it was really inexpensive, I just topped up my credit and used, that and still had money left when we got back to the UK,
