Yes you need a SIM?

Providing it's not a replacement for one which you've reported as lost of stolen (you'll have to sit tight for the one giffgaff post out to you), then your two quickest methods are;

Buy one from a local shop which sells SIM cards (most super markets, convenience stores, etc. sell giffgaff SIMs for around £1), or let us know your rough location (don't post your full address), as there could be a member local that can provide a spare one for you.

Hi @chubb08,

The SIM Swap procedure makers sure that the SIM is for the same account and has the same number Smiley Happy

To carry out a SIM swap, go to https://giffgaff.com/profile/details and go to where it says "replace my SIM".
Once you have your new SIM, it will take you through the process.

As mentioned above; the method of SIM Swap is your friend here, though if the SIM tou require is a replacement for one reported as lost or stolen, then you will need the SIM giffgaff post out to you.

If this isn't the case and you still need a SIM, quickest option is to probably head along to any shop which sells SIMs and buy one for around £1. Most outlets now carry giffgaff SIM cards.

If it's a replacement for a SIM you've reported as lost or stolen, then you'll need to sit tight forbthe one which giffgaff will post out to you.

If not, then your options are;

Let us know your approximate location (but not your full address), as there may be a member local to you whom you can arrange a SIM with.

Or buy one from a local shop, practically most shops that sell SIM cards sell giffgaff SIMs for around £1.

These above are your quickest methods, though if a quick turnaround isn't important, order one from your orders page: https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm and delivery should be within a few days.

Assuming that this is a replacement SIM, then you'll want to retain your existing number along with any credit or goodybags you have. To do this, you'll need to perform a SIM Swap, of which the following guide will walk you through it:
